This is my father's brother's wife Kristina with her daughters. Makica is on the left and Evica on the right. Krisitina was a non-Jewish Slovenian woman. My grandmother Klara called her "Sogorica" a Croatian phrase of German orgins, a term of affection meaning "sister-in-law." The two of them got along but there was no great affection between them. Kristina and her daughter were saved by her mother, a Slovenian woman. After the war they lived in Sarajevo.
