This is my sister Manyi [Margit Kaufmann] with her future husband Bandi [Andor Moskovits], at their engagement. They celebrated their engagement in our house in Nagykaroly. They invited their friends and everyone brought flowers, you can see the baskets in the background.
Margit's marriage was an arranged one, she got married in September 1935. Her husband was a clerk at a saw-mill near Marosvasarhely, at Lunca Bradului. Back then it was something to be a clerk! He was originally from Tasnad. He had an elder sister who got married in Hungary to a Christian, Bubi Barany. As far as I remember they lived in Budapest, and had no children. Manyi's wedding also took place in accordance with the Jewish tradition, under a chuppah, just like Anna's wedding. The costs were covered by my uncles, again. Where would we find the money to bring together ten men? According to the Jewish religion, there have to be at least ten men, called a minyan, for the prayer, and also for the wedding. And these ten men had to be well-treated. Manyi and her husband didn't last together for very long. There was no argument, nothing, they just didn't love each other. Well, it had to be something that didn't work out. Then my sister returned to Nagykaroly and continued to work as a photographer.
