Grandma Jolana with her daughters

This picture shows my grandmother Jolana Schwartz, in the middle. Sitting on her right is her daughter Zelma, and on her left is Bella.

Grandma Jolana was a seamstress. She sewed for clients, but also for her friends and family. Mainly for us, her grandchildren. She was a merry old soul, always smiling and in a good mood. As Grandpa had died, she lived in the apartment in Mikulasska Street alone. It was an apartment, with one room plus a kitchen. The apartment had electricity and running water.

Little Siegfrid

This photo was taken on 26th June 1936 in Bratislava. It shows my little brother Siegfrid F., in the arms of some man whom I don't know.

I was born, as my parents' first child, in 1928. They named me Henrich, or informally Harry. Several years later, on 28th February 1935, my brother, Siegfrid, was born. My brother and I got along very well. He was an agreeable kid. But we didn't get to enjoy very much fun and games outside, because the anti-Jewish laws [5] began coming out, so we mostly stayed inside.
