The photograph shows me, Alica Gazikova, and my brother Juraj Adler during the post-war years. Luckily my parents survived the war, and my brother as well. At that time I was 17. We returned to our original apartment, where only a couple of things remained. Everything had been stolen, and I tell you, we started anew. My first concern was school. There was a commerce school in Pezinok, so I immediately registered. My classmates were already in their second year, so I tried to as quickly as possible to learn what I had missed. I managed it, and in September of 1945 I wrote the entrance exams and was accepted into the second year. In those days commerce school had two years. After the war my brother got a job in Bratislava at the Gestadtner firm. Maybe it was a German company, or maybe a Jewish one, I don't know. They concerned themselves with copy machines and copy technology.
