This is my mother and me. My mother came from an assimilated, Neolog (Conservative) family of Budapest. Her father, Adolf Bergsman, was a traveling salesman of textiles. They lived in an elegant bourgeois neighborhood. My mother graduated from the Academy of Music and became a piano teacher. My parents married in 1925. I was born a year later. I think I don?t have a sister or brother because my mother wasn?t completely healthy. We lived in a big three-room flat in an elegant neighborhood of Budapest, which we shared with my maternal grandfather until his death in 1939.
