The one on the right is my husband, Iosef Leibovici, in the dental laboratory where he worked, doctor Hari Salter is the one next to him, and the others are probably colleagues. The photograph was taken around 1947-1948, perhaps even earlier.

My husband's name was Iosef Leibovici. He was born in Botosani in 1924. He was a dental technician.

We met at a youth party. People organized balls, reunions. We met through a third party and we liked each other. Our wedding took place in 1954 and, since it was during communism, and the system was very strict about religions, we had the religious ceremony performed - we had the civil ceremony performed in advance - among family members, at uncle Buium and my aunt's place. That's where the religious ceremony was performed. That's how it happened to be, because there had to be not too many people present. There were a few relatives of my husband's, there probably weren't more than 12 persons at the ceremony. I didn't wear a bridal gown, I had a light-colored dress instead, cream-colored, rather. I didn't have a veil, but you must wear something to cover your head when you are under the chuppah. And my husband was wearing a suit.

We had a daughter, Claudia, who was born in 1968, and died in a car accident together with my husband in 1978.
