This is the Baum family. The one on the left is my father's oldest sister, Berta, sitting beside her is her husband Rudolf, and then there's the older son, Milos, who they executed on 17th November 1939, when they were executing those university students. I think that he studied civil engineering at CTU. The little one, that's Hanus, he was born in 1928. My aunt was born on 16th December 1891. She and her husband and children lived somewhere in Vinohrady, Prague. In 1942 Berta went to Terezin with her husband and Hanus, from where they transferred them to Auschwitz in 1944, where all three died.
