My grandmother´s sister Nelli. Nelli died in childbirth. Her daughter was raised by my grandparents. Actually they raised three children: my father, his sister, auntie Kato, and Babus. 

[My great-grandparents] Zsigmond Schiller and Netti Stein had seven children: six girls, one boy. Jozsi, the eldest, became a journalist.  Blanka's husband was Lipot Baumhorn, one of the most well-known synagogue-builders. The third oldest was probably my grandmother, Paula. Then there was Frida. Auntie Frida, unlike the others, wanted to study and to have a job, so she became a certified teacher. She was the secretary of the mayor of Budapest. Later she left for England with her second husband. The sixth was Otto. He was the secretary of the National Association of Textile Manufacturers, which was a part of the Manufacturers' National Association. They were wealthy enough. We (my grandparents and my parents) were the poorest. The others lived downtown in nice three or four-roomed apartments.
