This photo was taken in 1928. At that time my mother’s brother Mario Moshe was 24 years old.

My mother was called Erietta, nee Moshe. In her family there were two sisters and two brothers, Jacques, Mario, Erietta and Sylvia.

With the bombings in Thessaloniki we decided to come to Athens in 1941.

When we arrived in Athens, we were accommodated at my Uncle Mario's place, who lived on Ploutarchou Street in Kolonaki, from March to September.

In April the Germans entered and occupied Athens, and they set up camp in Ploutarchou Street. Then the racist legislation was passed, so we had to hide.

My uncle Mario had a friend called Aristotelis Stamatiadis, who was working at the Ionian Popular Bank.

He sent me to a friend of his in Ekali, I remember I went in the morning to the bank wearing a scarf and looking down so that nobody would recognize me.

Mr. Stamatiadis took me to Mr. Telemachos Apostolpoulos, the bank manager.

He died recently, at the age of 104, and he was included on the list of the Righteous Among the Nations by Yad Vashem.

Uncle Mario was hiding in an apartment near to Acropolis.
