This picture was made when I was born and family of my dad´s brother Rudolf came to Kutna Hora for visit.

My mom is holding me and in left there is my cousin Marie standing and on right cousin Lilly.

My grandparents had seven children. Ota, who died in infancy, Rudolf, Emil, Ruzena, Marenka, my dad Julius and another son, Ota. Rudolf was born 1883. He married a Jewish woman, Rezi, who was my mother-in-law's sister.

They lived all their lives in Ceske Budejovice. Rudolf inherited a distillery from his father-in-law. When he died in 1922, the business was run by his wife, who did not survive the Holocaust.

They had two daughters together, Marie and Lilly, who were my cousins. Lilly married a non-Jewish man; living in a mixed marriage, she managed to survive the Holocaust.

She gave birth to a daughter in 1944, shortly before being incarcerated, and had another four children after the war. Marie also married a non-Jew, by the name of Antonin Rozanek.

Marie was sent to the Small Fortress in Terezin and then transported to Auschwitz. She was in the Frauenlager in Birkenau and, according to her sister Lilly, perished in Bergen-Belsen.

Her husband survived the persecution, as did their daughter Helenka, who married Josef Moravek, a chemist, with whom she emigrated to America, where they live to this day. Antonin remained in Bohemia. He went to visit her a few times, but he died in Bohemia.
