My father Menahem Montiljo and an actor from Zagreb, Pero Kvrzic. This picture was taken during the taping of the TV drama 'Simha' for Sarajevo Television. This particular scene is an adaptation of Isak Samokovljia's short story, "Samuel the Porter". My father worked as a tailor for the theater and was asked to play this small role because he looked the part and could sing the required Ladino song. There were other Ladino songs in the play which he sang along with other members of the Jewish community.
