My father. He was called Vilmos Sandor. He magyarized his name from Spielman before he married. That had to be done on account of his job, as he worked for the Veszto office of the Bekes County Savings Bank. He had a high school education. He met the young lady who became my mother on a train trip. My mother was sitting in the train with my grandmother and he sat beside them. That must have been in 1910 or 11. Right there on the train they decided to get married. The actual wedding ceremony in the temple followed in 1912 in Sopron. After the wedding he immediately took my mother to Veszto, where they lived in a family house, an official residence, secured by the Savings Bank. He had previously run into debts, which were then paid off from the dowry. As an unmarried man he had been accustomed to leading an easy life. Most likely, he did not abstain from alcohol either.
