Short History

published on February 14, 2013 in memories-in-silent-photographs

I live in Budapest. For a while. But I was born in Romania and my grand-grandparents lost their Hungarian citizenship due to the Trianon treaty. But this is about something different.

Take this image. He is Anti, my grandfather's brother. The house behind him was built from the money my grand-grandfather made here in Hungary. He worked for the people that owned the mines in the northern regions of the country. The owners of the mines were rich people, they had a residence here in Budapest. That residence was the building I am living in now.

And this was fate, I had no idea about this all. I found out about these thing after I have moved here.
