This is me, Ietti Leibovici, with my husband, Iosef Leibovici, during a trip to a lake somewhere. It might be at Tusnad. [Editor’s note: It is very likely that they are at the St. Ana lake, near Tusnad. http://www.ici.ro/romania/en/turism/c_sfana.html] I believe it was approximately in 1960-1961. After we got married, we went on trips every year. We've been to various places, both in the mountains, and at the seaside.
I had a daughter, Claudia, who was born in 1968, and died in a car accident together with my husband in 1978.
I was an UCY member when I was in school [member of the Union of Communist Youth]. That's how it was in those days, you had to be a member. But I had no position in the organization, no activity, I only attended a meeting every now and then. And then I turned 18 - I believe 18 years of age was the limit -, and that was the end of it. My husband was a member of the Communist Party - you had to be in those days. For he didn't choose to be a member of the party, he was forced by the circumstances. They made him a member of the Communist Party, and could you refuse and tell them: 'I don't want to be a party member.'? They didn't make me a party member, and he used to say: 'Suffice it that I am a member, let it be.'
