This is at a family party, I believe it was at the wedding of my cousin Izu Davidsohn. I, Ietti Leibovici, am the one sitting on the chair on the right, a cousin of mine, a more distant relative, is sitting on my left - her name was Eva, but I forget her family name just now - with her husband and daughter. They lived in Bucharest, but Eva died very many years ago. My cousin Anuta Manas is in the back, and the one on her right is one of my in-laws - a cousin of mine, Izu Davidsohn, is married to Anuta's daughter -, his name was Herman Schwartz. The photograph was taken in Bucharest around 1956.

The grandparents from my father's side had 7 children: my father, David Davidsohn, was the eldest, followed by Buium, then Lotti, Clara, Ana, Zalman, and Lica who was the youngest of the children. None of them is still living at present, but there are their children, their grandchildren, and they are all living in Israel.

Buium Davidsohn was a butcher. He lived in Botosani. His wife's name was Adela and they had 3 children: Anuta, Celu and Izu. They were older than me. Iosi Manas was Anuta's husband. They lived in Burdujeni, Suceava. [Ed. note: At present, Burdujeni is a neighborhood of the city of Syceava.] Izu Davidsohn got married in Bucharest in 1956 - I attended his wedding. My uncle died in Botosani around 1961, I believe, and she emigrated to Israel with Anuta. The 2 boys emigrated before they did. Anuta is still alive, the other 2 are dead.
