This picture was taken in August 1923, most likely in Karlsbad. You can see my grandfather Helmut Stern here; I don?t know the other people in the photo. My grandfather was born in Opava in 1906, when my great-grandfather was working there. My grandfather attended the Czechoslovak State Trade Academy in Bratislava from 1922-23. At least two thirds of the students were of Jewish origin. The only person still alive from his class is Mr. Marcel Kucera, who is about 90 now. After the war my grandfather worked as an accountant. Later, due to his illness, he had to retire and he died in 1995.
