In this photograph, my sister Annuska is the first on the left, standing beside her is her husband, and I’m the third from the right. This photograph was taken in Poland in the town of Musina, where my sister and her husband had gone on a trip after getting married. The year was 1937.

When in the second half of the 1930s Professor Frantisek Guttmann evicted us from our apartment, my older sisters Lujza and Anna made sure that we didn't end up on the street. They gave us money, and found us a new place to live. By intervening in this way, Annuska gained the right to marry according to her wishes. She got married in 1936, and had one son with her husband, whose name I unfortunately don't know anymore. The child was splendid in all respects. Alas, Annuska perished along with her young family during the time of the Nazi rampage in one of the concentration camps.
