This is a picture from when I was a little boy.

You can see me here with my mother, Mathilda Beraha, nee Saporta, and my father, Carolos Beraha. It was taken in Thessaloniki during the occupation.

The kind of stockings my mother is wearing are silken, a luxury for the time and very popular among women at the time.

My mother was beautiful, a brunette, and combed her hair in a modern way; she went to the hairdresser’s and did lots of different things with it. She always dressed according to the latest fashion.

Appearance-wise my father looked very much like me; he was a well built man but not too tall. My father wore a ‘republica’ style hat.

I even remember the brand: they were Italian made, very expensive, and were called ‘Borsalino.’ He had many of them and changed them according to what he was wearing.
