This photo was taken in the 1920s, and shows people on the beach in Bratislava. The beach, by the Danube River, was across from the Jewish cemetery, and was surrounded by poplars. There was this cove there, where people from the city used to go swimming. I can recognize three people in the photograph. Lying down right at the front, on the left, is my mother, Helena. In the top row, third from the left, is my mother's sister, Irena, and fifth from the left is another of her sisters, Roza.
