This is the photo of my mother’s sister, Irina, when she got married to Iosif Somogyi in 1912/1913 in Arad.

My mother had several brothers and sisters who were all born in Simand; they were Alexandru, Francisc, Irina, Ivan and Leopoldina. Irina, born in 1887, was a housewife and lived with her husband, Iosif Somogyi, an accountant in Arad. They didn't have children. Iosif died in 1925, and Irina in 1969.

After graduating, in 1944, I started my lawyer's internship with my father, who took me for about two years. I lived in Buteni until 1946, when I was appointed judge in Arad. Eventually, I became the president of the court between 1952 and 1968. In Arad, I lived with Aunt Irina, in the old house of my maternal grandmother.
