We are high school graduates here. The photo was taken in Sofia in 1946/47. My friend Shelli is first and Velichka is second from left in the first row. Maria is first from left in the third row. Our head master [centre] was a French teacher. Shamefully, I don?t remember either her name or anything much in French. 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.
