Interviewee: Mariann Szamosi
Title: Peter Szilagyi and Sara Szilagyi
Place and Date: Budapest, Hungary - 1990
This is Peter Szilagyi, my youngest daughter's lifepartner, with their first little girl, Sarika, in 1990, not long after her birth. They didn't have an apartment then, meanwhile Grandma Szamosi died, and my Julia got that apartment- she?d been living with grandma for a long time - and this picture was taken there.
My son-in-law is a film technician, he's got a Kft. [company], and works with different groups and different productions. My daughter is now managing some foriegn trade. Before that, she worked for me in book publishing, while her kids were still tiny. She could only take on work that meant being occupied in the evenings. She spent a lot of time with her children, and can play with them exquisitely. She's able to do puzzles with them for hours.
We live in a close community, everyday we telephoned. We aren?t together so often, but luckily I have my duty to do for them, they have me at their Kapolnasnyek house in the summer for two or three weeks with the children. They?re always well-organized summers because there's always a lot of kids. Last summer, a whole dance group vacationed there for a week.
