My grandmother with friends. Ferenc Rosenthal, my grandfather, was a brother of Cecilia, my great grandmother, and this rather unfortunate thing happened: he married his own niece, my great grandmother's daughter, a very beautiful young girl. But then my granddad was a full-fledged schoolteacher, and when he took fancy to Janka, the 17-year-old niece of his, the poor creature was duly married to the schoolteacher. My grandmother Janka drew a fairly good pension after my grandfather's death. We had a huge family scattered throughout the country from Sopron to Bekescsaba. We were the only ones who lived in Budapest, so we put up everyone who came to Budapest from the countryside on any business.
