This is my son, Zwi Bar-David. The photo was taken in Vienna in the 1960s. Zwi was born Georg Rosenstein in Budapest on 27th June 1945. My husband was already 47 years old and didn't think he?d become a father any more. He was very happy about Georg's birth. Unfortunately my husband died in 1961. After his final exams in Vienna, my son went to Israel. You see, the whole family lived in Israel: his sisters Bessy and Lilly, his grandmother, aunts, uncles and cousins. Georg He lived in a kibbutz there and studied psychology. He changed his name to Zwi Bar-David. He married Ilana, whose family on the mother's side is also from Berlin, from Scheunenviertel, and they had two daughters and a son.
