Subject: [h-sig] Interpreting Hungarian translation on back of a picture
: I have a picture of my late father as a baby with his
: mother in Hungary. As a holocaust survivor, this is
: the only picture my father had of his mother. Someone
: just translated the inscription on the back for me but
: now I need it interpreted! The inscription says:
: "Sanyi with his vicemama". Sanyi was my father.
: Apparently there is no one translation for vicemama.
: Could be assistant to mother, replacement, stepmother.
: I'm stumped. What could this mean?
: The pictures (front and back) are here:
: Front of pic:
: Back of pic:
: Please respond privately.
