This is my maternal grandmother, Maria Bondyova, nee Buchwaldova.
The house and company of my grandfather, Julius Bondy, was located on the main square of Holic. He produced soda water; but it was rather his wife who ran the company. My grandparents weren't rich; they were middle class businessmen.
My grandmother had two brothers who became Catholic priests and lived on the borderland. The family had no contact with them; they were probably resentful of them, I don't know anything about their later fate. My grandmother died quite early, I don't remember her death or funeral.
