This is my cousin Bozsi Vajda, nee Stern. The photo was taken in Nagykata in the 1910s. My paternal grandparents had six children. The eldest was Auntie Etelka Horvath, nee Preisz, who was probably born in 1890. Her husband was called Imre Horvath, and they were also merchants in Nagykata. They had a dry goods and textiles shop. They had a child, Laci and an adopted daughter because one of her husband's sisters died and their daughter became an orphan; so they adopted her. She was called Bozsi Stern. When Bozsi got married, there was a big celebration. Her wedding was in Nagykata at the family house. The celebrations were held in the yard and all of us were down there. The rabbi came and married them in our yard. This was the last time the family was together. This was in 1942.
