This is my mother-in-law Lenka Isak Behar, nee Alfandari (the one with the colored kerchief) with friends on a vacation in a village near Sofia in 1929. The child is my future husband Jacquelen Behar. Jacquelen was born on 3rd February 1926 in Sofia. His family wasn't rich - they were workers. They weren't religious. His father entered the socialist movement right after World War I. When Jacquelen was young, he was a member of the communist youth movement. During the Holocaust his family was interned to Vratsa. Jacquelen's family did not want to move to Israel. His father became a member of the Bulgarian Communist Party as early as 1919 and they believed they had to stay in Bulgaria to build socialism and communism.
