This photo was taken on 30th November 1928 in Vidin. This is a photo of the family of my mother's brother Yako Lidgi. My mother's father died when she was seven years old and her mother died while giving birth to her younger brother, Marco. So, my mother was raised by her elder brother, my uncle Yako. He was like a father to her and like a grandfather to me, I loved him very much. From right to left are my father Buko Pizanti, my mother Sarah Pizanti, nee Lidgi, standing next to them is my elder sister Liza Peneva, nee Pizanti, sitting on the chair is my sister Veneta Alhalel, nee Pizanti, and I am in the hands of my mother. I am one year old here. In the center, to the left of my father is Mazal, the mother of my uncle's wife, whose name was Duda. Duda is sitting to the left. Next to her is their elder son Albert, and their daughter Luna, who is the same age as me, is in her lap. They had one more daughter later on - Mati, but she was not yet born in 1928, when this photo was taken.
