This picture was taken in Cegled in 1922, on the right is Anci [Anna Kaufmann], my eldest sister, in the middle is Magdi Kandel, one of our cousins, while on the left is Magdi's girlfriend, Sari Erdos.

My father had many siblings: Rezsinke, Gizella, Mariska and Ignac. The eldest one was Rezsinke. After Rezsinke was Gizella, Moric Kandel's wife. She got married in Cegled. We were on very good terms with them. She had four daughters: Rozsika, Kati, Magdi and Boris, who got married to Dunapentele.

Anci used to go to Cegled to spend her summer holidays, with our cousins. We kept in touch with our relatives. She gained some weight there, because when they ate they always sent her to the kitchen for something, 'Go to the kitchen and bring this! Bring a spoon, bring this or that.' And they used to put some more food on her plate. She thought she had left the food on her plate and ate it, and it was terrible how much weight she put on. They laughed at her because she didn't notice the others were putting more and more food on her plate. When she came home, she was very fat. I didn't visit them, because they were older than me: Magdi was eight years older, she was the same age as my sister, while Kati was even older.
