MARTA BRAUN ET AL
Zvolen, Slovakia
cir 1933
 

Photo above is of Marta Braun with Richard and Ernest Bloch.
 

Terez Nagy married in Balassagyarmat to Erno Braun and had one daughter, Marta. Both Terez and Erno passed away in the early forties and Marta was brought up by her beloved grandmother, Miriam. 

During the war, Marta escaped to Budapest and promised her grandmother that she would visit her every weekend. In the summer of 1944, one weekend when Marta returned to Balassagyarmat, she found her town empty of Jews. Her grandmother was deported with all the Jewish community of Balassagyarmat to Auschwitz, and even the family jewelry hidden under the tree in Miriam's backyard were missing.

 
Martha survived the war and married Hugo Tessler in Budapest and had two daughters. In 1956, they fled to London, England where they lived happily after.
