This studio photograph shows my brother Armin playing cards with his friends. It was taken in Topolcany by Aladar Vermes, and is from the 1920s. The fourth sibling in line was my brother Armin. He was born in Banovce nad Bebravou, in 1909. He was employed as a clerk in a textile store in Topolcany. Luckily he didn't experience the horrors of the Holocaust first-hand. In 1936 he moved to Palestine. He lived in the Gan Shamuel kibbutz and after the war our father went there to live with him as well.
