This picture was taken during World War I. My father, Miklos Molnar, is the fifth from left in the standing row, wearing a cap and a fur-lined coat. My father was born in 1898. He went to elementary and middle school. After middle school they made him a confectioner's apprentice. Later he became a confectioner master. He took his confectioner's master exam on 18th December 1939 in front of the examining committee. He was a soldier during World War I. He was a patriotic Hungarian, and he was very proud of being a soldier. He didn't tell me World War I memories, but I know that it wasn't bad for him there. He wasn't in a place where there was a lot of shooting. I don't know at which company he was, I only know that he wasn't on the battlefront. He was a simple soldier, he had no rank.
