This picture was taken in Lodz in 1922. From the left we can see my father's sister, Frania Stuczynska (nee Pikielna), her husband Stuczynski, whose first name I don?t know, Maks Pikielny, my father's brother, and his wife, whose name I don?t know either. My father's sister Frania was born on 8th September 1894, and her married name was Stuczynska. She lived in Vilnius with her husband. They had a daughter, my age, called Lidia. She was probably born in Vilnius, on 15th December 1926. All of Frania's family was in the Vilnius ghetto, from where they were transferred to one of the camps in Lithuania and were killed there. My grandparents' third son was called Maks. He had two sons. The elder one's name was Alek. I remember him being unhappy with the fact he'd been born during the summer vacation and so couldn't throw a birthday party. He had his bar mitzvah in 1939. I think the second son was called Bronek. I've heard Maks's family was in the Warsaw ghetto at first. They all died.
