This is my mother’s mother, I don’t know too much about her because she died short after my birth.

My mother's family, the Ullmanns, came from Hajdudorog. My Ullmann grandparents had six children. My mother's oldest sister was Ilus, then came Iren, then my mother, Margit, she came in '94, then Jolan in '97, Marcsa in 1902, and after her Sanyi [nickname for the male Sandor]. My aunts all resembled one-another, in appearance and character too. Since he [the grandfather] had six kids he wasn't drafted to be a soldier, but worked for the Red Cross. For instance, he was there to meet the trains coming from the front in the First World War. My grandfather was a very good-looking man. He wore a top-hat and it was always a joy to walk with him on Andrassy Road [in Pest] because we lived nearby. Grandpa Ullmann prayed in the morning. He didn't go to temple much, but he prayed, every morning.
