This is me. The picture was taken in the parlor of our appartment in Sombor in the summer of 1939, at the conclusion of my dance class. A recital was organized for that occasion. You can see the dining-room in the background and my mother's piano next to me. Like most of the teenagers in Sombor at the time, I took both dance lessons and music lessons. I took a dance course for several months and although I did not enjoy it, I finished the course. I took private piano lessons at a Jewish woman's house, but was not very good, and quit after a while. I also had private French lessons after school. All of these things were normal practices for young adults at the time.
