Josef Baruhovic's mother Simha Baruhovic and her daughter, Rahela Baruhovic on her wedding day

My sister Rahela with our mother Simha Baruhovic on my sister’s wedding day in 1963 in Kiryat Moskin, Israel.

When my sister finished her degree in physical chemistry in 1963, she went to Israel on a month long holiday.

There, she stayed with my maternal uncle, Moshe (Moni) Izrael, a civil engineer who made aliyah right after the war.

He and his wife did not have children of their own and were pleased to have Seli stay with them.

During this trip she met Shimon Malina, a Jew from Argentina.

They married in Kiryat Moskin in 1963, and today Seli has three sons and four grandchildren and is still as active as ever.
