This picture was taken at the wedding of my daughter Elsa to Vitali Franko, at the Neve Shalom Synagogue in Istanbul, on 8th August 1974. From left to right: myself, my wife Klara, Elsa and Vitali under the Tallid, Matilda Franko (groom's mother) and Albert Franko (groom's father). My daughter Elsa studied psychology in France. Afterwards she returned home and married Vitali Franko, the son of a Jewish family in Istanbul, who was a student at INSA [Institut National des Sciences Appliquees, National Institute of Applied Sciences] also at Lyon, and then returned to France. Later they moved to the US and they still live there. From Elsa, I have two grandsons named Alp or Albert, after Vitali's father, and Eli, after me. Unfortunately I don't use the Internet to communicate with my children and grandchildren. For some reason I have been allergic to everything mechanical in my life. Luckily my wife Klara can manage to deal with the computer and manages our communication for both of us.
