This is a picture of my uncle, my father's brother, Jeno Antal. The photo was taken at Lake Balaton in 1929. I think Jeno was two or three years younger than my father. He went to America in 1938. He was a violinist and he played in the Rock Quartet, which is said to have been a renowned quartet. He got married back when he was still at home, to Katalin Bant, daughter of Bant, who owned the bread factory, and they never had children. They wanted to bring us to the US. It was discussed back in 1941-42, but the Americans didn't want to let us in. Jeno Antal lived and worked up until the age of 80-82, then he died in America. Once he visited us here.
