This is my uncle Pista Preisz, my father's youngest brother, with his two children Andras and Eva. The photo was taken in Budapest in 1959. His first wife Maria Preisz, nee Bmuthaner, was a very elegant woman. They married in 1937. They had one daughter. The daughter and the mother were deported from Nagykata, where they lived, to Auschwitz. Pista was in forced labor and when he came home, he married again. His second wife was from Miske, but she had some connection to Nagykata. They had two children, Andras and Eva. After the war Pista first opened a shop with Laci [his brother Miklos? son], it was a big beautiful fashion and drapery shop. Later he worked in a food shop; he was the manager. After that, he set up a little knit-ware workshop. He died in 1977, but his wife is still alive. Andras got married, and they left for Montreal, Canada. His wife divorced him there. He was an electric engineer here, and worked as quality controler. He has the same kind of job in Canada. Eva married in Budapest, and her profession is being a ?grande dame?. Her husband is a trader in car spares and she doesn?t have to do anything. They have two daughters, the eldest just got married to a lawyer. The younger one is still studying.
