This is the wedding photograph of my parents, Teodor Pasternak and Marta Pasternakova, nee Preisova. They got married on 1st January 1940. The wedding was held in a Neolog synagogue on Konstantinova Street in Presov. My parents were very sociable people. The Jewish social life in Presov was quite rich. The Jewish youth used to meet at a place where a swimming pool was built later. They established a Jewish association called Fortuna. They organized trips, social events and religious ceremonies in Presov.
