    Love some of the work he did on star trek. I always assumed he was Jewish from his surname.

      Mirko/Marko Steve/Stephen “Marco” Rudman and Anna->Mirko/Marko Steve/Stephen “Marco” Rudman and Anna Omerzel.

      I think Anna was Slovenian from Metlika. Mirko is from a village called ”Budim”, which is likely Budim Vivodinski, which is close to Metlika, but on the Croatian side of the border.
