These are Aneta (or Jeni, as she was called in the family) and Claris Herscovici, the daughters of Marcu Herscovici, one of my mother?s, Dorina Fiul's brothers. The photo was taken some time in the 1930s, in Bucharest, because that is where they lived. All I know about Jeni is that, when she grew older, she had a daughter who now lives in USA, but I don?t know her name. Claris, on the other hand, had a rather interesting life: she was a very beautiful woman, and her suitors were extremely gealous on each other; one of them, a certain captain Tonegaru, actually fired his gun on a rival, on Victoriei Boulevard, in the very center of Bucharest. She was married to a doctor, I don?t know his name; it was only for a short period of time, but when they split up, he tried to kill himself, he cut his veins. He didn't succeed though. After that, Claris married Nel Cobar, a famous cartoonist in Bucharest at the time. They had two boys, who now live in USA, but I don?t know their names.
