Photograph | Photograph Number: 15229

Portrait of an engaged Jewish couple in Cluj.

Pictured are Jolande Markovits (the donor's sister) and Bela Blau. Blau was on leave from his Hungarian labor battalion. Blau survived the labor battalion and deportation to Auschwitz. Jolande perished in Auschwitz.

The donor, Andre Markovits, who was liberated from Buchenwald, returned to Cluj after the war and retrieved this photo from the photographic studio in which it was taken in 1943. Andre was the sole survivor of his family, who were all deported from the Cluj ghetto to Auschwitz in April, 1944.
