This is my uncle, Chaim Schnitzer with his wife Mania. This picture was taken shortly after their marriage, in the 1920s.

My mother had a sister, Sala, and two brothers, Chaim and Pinek. Chaim or Henryk Schnitzer was younger than my mother. I don't know which year he was born, perhaps in 1900. I was born in 1924 and he got married soon after. Before the war, Uncle Chaim lived in Zakopane and in Nowy Targ, until 1939. He died with his wife and daughter, I think, during the Holocaust; the daughter was younger than my sister, so she must have been born around 1932.
