These are my maternal grandparents Ignatz Neumann and Rosa Neumannova, nee Lebovitch. My mother's father owned a pub near the railway station in Kosice. I recall that he died here in Kosice in 1936. He was very kind to me and he loved having his family around. His pub was on Mill Square Street, and it simply bore the name of the street. He didn't serve food, just beer, wine and spirits. He was married to Rosza Lebovitch. She came from a village near Kralove Chulmec. They went to the synagogue regularly - the Neolog synagogue. There was also a Status-Quo synagogue and a Neolog Jewish school here in Kosice.
