This document certifies that my father, Miklos Molnar, was a member of the trade corporation. It was issued in Budapest in 1947. My father opened the shop after the liberation. There wasn't any merchandise of course, because the shop had been robbed. Among the stolen merchandise there was licorice, which was wrapped in bay leaves so that it wouldn't go bad. They took the licorice, but they didn't take the bay leaves, a sack full of bay leaves was left there. My father packed the bay leaves in small bags and he sold that. It's amazing how many people wanted to buy bay leaves. A long queue stood in front of the shop. Then he got hold of Mauthner seeds from somewhere. This was a famous seed merchant. He got hold of pepper, tomato and all kinds of seeds, and he sold that. Then he got several rolls of silk, and he sold that. Later the candy makers started to make lollipops again, and that was a great article. My father and my Aunt Margit ran the shop. The shop operated until the nationalization. The nationalization happened in 1948, they didn't even allow my father to go back to get his hat.
