This is my uncle Leon Finanser, my mother's brother, with his wife Süzan. The photo was taken in Istanbul in the 1950s. Leon Finanser was a customs agent. He adopted the name Cemil Finanser. He was married to Süzan from Edirne. They didn't have any children. They moved to Israel in the 1970s. There, Leon adopted the name Ari Finanser. He died there in 1989. As far as I know, his wife Süzan still lives in Israel.
