Olena Pereksta Demjan - (Almost) Wordless Wednesday

This is the first photograph I have found of my great-aunt Olena Pereksta Demjan. She is pictured here with her daughter Elizabeta Demjan. The photograph is undated, but was probably taken in the late 1930s/early 1940s. It was taken in Kolbasov, Czechoslovakia (now Slovakia). We visited Elizabeta and her family in 1992.

  2. Your great-aunt looks so young. Until I read your description, I thought that the two people were sisters.

  4. Susan, I love the hand holding as well. I wonder how many of your family members have held this picture and discussed it, nice thought.
