This is my wedding picture, taken in Belgrade in 1948. I met my husband, Onton Cerge, during the war in Banovo Brdo. He lived there. We both knew the same people and that's how we met. I guess he knew that I was a Jew from the priest who was hiding me. He also knew the priest. But he didn't say anything. In 1946 I went to Slovenia to my uncle, a dentist, to work a little there. But I didn't last long there, and in 1947 I returned to Belgrade. I got a job at the dental clinic. Onton came to visit me, this and that, and in 1948 we married. I went to live with him on Topcidarski Brdo. We married on 8th September 1948 at the Savski Venac municipal office. My witness was a woman from my work named Spominka. I do not remember her last name. I do not remember if Onton brought someone with him as well. My mother and sister were not present. There was no celebration after the ceremony.
