This is my grandfather Alexandru Kohn's brother, the one who stayed in Vienna. I don't remember what his name was, but I know he was engaged in acquisitions at the imperial court of Emperor Franz Joseph. The photo was taken in Vienna in 1898.

My grandfather Kohn was born in Vienna. His mother tongue was Hungarian because at that time Hungary constituted a principle part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. He finished four grades and did his army service with the Austrian-Hungarian Army. Later he worked as a trader. My grandfather lived in Sebis. He died when my father was two years old, so I know very few things about him. Beyond the brother mentioned above, he also had a sister who worked in the fur trade in England.
