Janos’ second uncle

    Hungary

This is Rezso, my mother's uncle.

His father was my great-grandfather called Markusz Steiner. He must have been born around 1840-1850. He had a sort of guesthouse in Gyongyos. He died relatively young. He had 7 or 8 kids, both boys and girls. If I look at his picture, I had a really 'gutmuttig', dear, and very handsome grandfather. He wasn't deeply religious. He had a true Jewish family, full of love. But the rest of the siblings, the kids all married Jews. He wasn't a Neolog in the sense of today - he surely kept the great holidays. I don't believe the house was kosher. Well, the guesthouse wasn't kosher for that matter. One of his sons took over the guesthouse. But he was nice. He was a great singer.

Rezso inherited the inn from Markusz in Gyongyos. He become a good and famous innkeeper. He had always different girlfriends, never married.

I met him only a couple of times.
