This is a photo of Eugen (or Puiu, as we called him in the family) Margulius, together with his wife; it was taken in Bucharest, in the 1950s I think. He was the son of Isidor Margulius, my maternal grandmother?s, Feiga Herscovici's brother. Eugen studied engineering at Oxford, but I remember he also fought during World War I, and he was a liaison officer, and during the Marasesti campaign he came on furlough to Bacau with his peaked cap pierced by a bullet. He was lucky to make it! We kept his uniform and pierced cap for a long time. I don?t remember his wife's name, but i know she had been married to a general before him, and that she brought a son to this marriage, who now works as a doctor in Bucharest. Eugen died in Bucharest, and he is buried in the Spanish cemetery there. [It is a Sephardi cemetery, sometimes, sephardi Jews are called Spanish in Romania].
