This photo was taken in Maros Valley in 1917. The person on the left is Dr. Ede Izsak, my father's brother. He was a doctor and worked as a military doctor in the army during World War I. From among the Izsak siblings he was the only preson who graduated from university, he had the widest range of knowledge, interest in literature and arts. At the same time he was the one who was the most attached to Jewry emotionally. Perhaps because the family of his wife, Iren Beck, rich tenant farmers from the Dunantul, were Orthodox. Uncle Edus was a Zionist, he was one of the leaders of the Hungarian Zionist movement in the 1920s and 1930s. In 1934 he went to Palestine with his wife, not with the purpose of emigrating at that time, but in 1957 they emigrated. They got settled in Tel-Aviv. My parents visited them in 1964.
