This baby is a cousin of mine, my aunt Rebecca Cohen's baby. The picture was taken at the photo studio Michel in Thessaloniki in the 1930s.

My father’s sisters were named Alegra, Lukia and little Rebecca. They were married: Alegra to Josef Brudo from Thessaloniki, Lukia to Levi Tazartes and Rebecca to a man called Cohen.

Even though I have a picture of him, I don’t know his first name. Alegra, her husband and daughter, who now lives in the USA, and Zakinos, the son of another sister, were receiving some sort of help from Carolos.

The structure of the family then was such that they didn’t let anyone fall by the wayside; my father would take charge after any misfortune.

The Cohen family were all deported and didn’t survive the Holocaust.
