This is my oldest sister, Lujza Wohlwert, nee Friedmannova. The photo was taken in Presov in the 1930s. Lujza was the oldest child. She was born in Presov in 1910. Before World War II she finished an accounting course. She was deported to Auschwitz with the last transport in 1942, along with her husband, Bela Wohlwert, and in December, during the last selection, she was sent to the gas chambers. She spent three months in the concentration camp. Her husband was also killed in Auschwitz in 1942.
