About Géza Goldberger
Geza Goldberger, Armin and Sarolta's eldest child, was an intelligent and talented young man. Like his two sisters, he attended elementary school in Graz. He moved with his family to Trieste. At 18 he graduated the K.K. Staats-Real-Gymnasium in Trieste, and then applied for a job at Assicurazioni Generali. On the 10th of September, 1911, he started a 3-month trial period and thanks to his good command of languages such as Italian and Hungarian (in addition to German being his mother-tongue), and on the 1st of January, 1912, he was offered a position in Life Insurance at the Generali Head Office in Budapest.
Generali's file regarding Géza Goldberger is not actually very rich of further information excluding a letter he sent to Generali, Trieste, on the 2nd of July, 1913, to get his high-school diploma back as he wanted to apply for the State examination at Graz University.
At the age of twenty he was called up as World War One broke out. He enlisted in Székesfehérvár, Hungary, as Corporal. The photos in uniform were taken there. .According to the War Archive in Vienna he was enlisted to: "koenigliches ungarisches Landwehrinfaterie-regiment Nummer 17, 2. Kompanie." Shortly later he was sent to the front. Assicurazioni Generali's papers confirm he died at war in the area of Karlikow (Galicia) on the 10th of May, 1915. Presumably it was during the Gorlice-Tarnow Offensive in Galicia, which took place in May that year.
Several official letters of condolence followed his death. In addition to them a sort of booklet or gazette: “Közgazdasàgi Közlemények” was issued in Budapest on July 1, 1915, where a short obituary notice with a photo of Géza is reported
His father asked Generali to help bring his remains to Budapest. He is presumably buried in the city's district 5.
His mother never overcame the loss of her beloved son.
