My mother before her wedding. She attended the upper middle school for girls in Sopron. Then her parents registered her for a one-year course in a business school. She found work as a clerk at the local administration center. Most of the time I was looked after by my aunt, who moved in with us after my father did not come back from the war. I was practically raised by her. My father 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.
