My aunt Aranka and her husband Arpad Pollak and their two boys Peter and Pisti. 

[My maternal grandparents] had eleven children, all of whom were born in Budapest. The first two children died immediately after birth. The last one was Aranka. She had a profession; I think she was a glove-maker. She got married - it was a forced marriage; she felt very old, and chose to be the wife of a man called Pollak. She was always saying that she didn't love him. She had two children, and the relatives are still alive, somewhere.
