This is my younger sister, Eva Schwartz. The picture was taken in Ilk in 1944, before they were going to deport her and my mother. Eva was born in 1927 and could have been seventeen years old when she and my mother were deported together to Auschwitz. I don’t know how they were taken from Ilk, just the endstop is known. She had no family, and - thank god- she didn’t have a husband, so she couldn’t have had children. I don’t know anything about the Auschwitz things, just that nobody of ours came back from there. I don’t really have memories of her, since she was about ten years old when I moved up to Pest.
