This is my sister, Breda, while performing with the Israeli Opera Company. She was a guest performer with them for six months from September 1964 to March 1965. This photo was taken in Tel Aviv in 1964. Very soon after the war my sister and I joined the Jewish community. My sister even sang with the choir and went to Israel with them in 1952, '54, '56, '58. I was always so proud of my sister and all her successes. From the time she began singing professionally I always went to see her perform.
