This photo is of people interned in Kiustendil, most of whom belonged to Union of the Young Workers. The picture was taken in Sofia soon after 9th of September 1944, when we came back home from the internment. Next to me is Ioshko [Iosif Kamhi] whose mother had burned to death in the Kailuka concentration camp in Pleven. To the left of me is Vizka [Kamhi]. The most difficult thing for us after the war was to find a house in Sofia. The one we lived in before the internment had been given to other people. Iosif Kamhi's family gave us a room on Vladaiska Street. We lived in that room for quite a long time. I graduated from high school in Sofia after the war. During the internment in Kiustendil I tried several times, but I wasn't allowed to study. In 1948 I began studying medicine and I graduated in 1953. First I worked in Krainitsi village. I wasn't married at that time. My husband was a soldier, as they took him after he had graduated law. For three-four years I worked in Pernik and after that in Sofia. I was a doctor until my retirement. During the last three years I worked at the Ministry of Health. I was responsible for the instruction of college medical specialists.
