Iacob Bohorachev with his siblings

This is my father Iacob Bohorachev (on the right) with his brothers Avram (sitting to the left) and Isak (standing), and their sister Rosa. The picture was taken in Kyustendil in the 1910s.

My father had two brothers and one sister. Avram was born in 1894 and died at the age of 87 in 1981 in Israel. I don't know when Isak was born, but he died very young.

My father was the youngest son. He was named Iacob at birth, but they called him Jacques, and he was known by that name everywhere. He was born in 1900 in Kyustendil. My father didn't complete his university studies in economics, but he nonetheless worked as an accountant in a knitwear factory.

My aunt Rosa Rosa was born in 1892. She lived in Pernik, Uncle Avram and my father in Sofia. They weren't very religious and only observed the high holidays, mainly at home, where the whole family gathered.
