Summer holiday in Adiliget. After the Great Depression, my parents could no longer afford to go on holiday in Upper Austria, so we rented a small house in Adiliget, a village near Budapest. On the photo you can see me and my parents and some relatives. Ilus, on the right wearing glasses, was the daughter of my father's sister. She was born in a Hasidic family in Transylvania. She converted and was disowned by her family. She was the only one of that very Orthodox branch to survive the Holocaust. Despite the fact that she left her ancestors? faith, my father kept up a friendly relationship with her. Emi, next to my father, was the daughter of my mother's uncle Ignac. The family magyarized their name from Bergsmann to Balint and emigrated to England in 1944.
