This is my cousin, Miklos Rosenberg, he is the boy with the ball, his mother and I in Nagykanizsa in 1939.
Miklos is the child of my father's sister, Frida Leicht, my only cousin who survived the Holocaust. During the war, in 1942 or 1943, Frida moved with her husband from Somogycsurgo to a big apartment in Pest, where her husband's relatives lived. Then her husband was drafted into forced labor and was killed. We liked each other with Miklos, because we were very similar in thinking. He also had a strong Jewish identity, even though later he had a Christian wife.
