Iacob Behar

This is a picture of my father-in-law Iacob Behar, photographed in 1918 as a soldier in the Bulgarian army during World War I. Bulgarian Jews took active part in the Balkan Wars and in World War I. Many of them were presented with medals for bravery. My husband's family was not rich - they were workers. They were not religious. Iacob entered the socialist movement right after World War I.
