This is my father, Carolos Beraha, at the age of ten. The photo was taken in Thessaloniki in 1908.

My father was born in 1898 in Salonica. When he was a young man, socialist principles and the socialist party in Thessaloniki influenced his views.

However when he grew up and started becoming someone of importance, he became a boss himself; when he started earning money he abandoned socialism and was never a member of any political party. What my father really wanted was to become Greek in essence.
