This is the family of my father's sister Sultana Amar, nee Benvinisti, in America where she married her fiance Marko Amar. The photo was taken in New York in 1936. Their son Aron, who was born in Bulgaria before Sultana left for the USA, is with them on the picture. She lived alone with her child for almost eight years and after that she suddenly received a telegram from her fiance saying that he would wait for her at the New York airport. She gathered money for an airplane ticket with my father's help and after an impressive farewell, she left for the States in 1930.
