I kept staring at my calendar.
November 20. November 20. Why is this date memorable?
Then it suddenly popped into my mind. My father was born exactly 115 years ago, on November 20, 1906, in what was then Austria-Hungary, in the fine city of Temesvár, today known by its Romanian name as Timișoara.
He passed away in the fall of 1985, not long before I left Hungary.
