This is picture of my aunt Ruzena and her son.
Ruzena was born in 1890. She married Ota Beran, who, I think, was a coffee importer.
They were well-off financially, but their only son, who I never met, was killed in a bike crash long before the war.
Ruzena lived with her husband in Prague and later built a villa in Strancice, where we once came to visit. I was really impressed by the place at the time, for there was a room with a door that led straight onto the garden via a staircase.
Ruzena and Ota were both transported to Terezin in September 1942 and straight on to Maly Trostinec, where they perished.
