This is a picture of Adriana Brodyova, nee Sternova, the sister of my grandfather Helmut, taken on 28th April 1905 in Opava. On this photo she is four and a half month old. Adriana was born in 1905. She spoke eleven languages fluently. An interesting fact was that two Brody siblings, Janka Brodyova and Viliam Brody married two siblings of the Stern family in a mutual wedding. Viliam married Adriana and Janka married my grandfather Helmut. In 1939 she left with her husband for Great Britain, where she was a lecturer at university. Here she was a teacher at the secondary school on Grosslingova Street in Bratislava. Adriana's life dream was to go on a voyage on the river Rhine, and she did, and during this voyage she had a heart attack and died. Viliam Brody established a small firm for typing machines which later became a part of IBM. He died in Oxford in 1995. They didn't have children.
