This is my mother, Mathilda Beraha, nee Saporta, after the war, sometimes in the 1950s in Athens. My mother was born in Thessaloniki in 1898. Her mother tongue was Ladino. She lived in Paris from 1910 to 1915 where she studied to become a teacher, and then worked for a year in Casablanca, Morocco. After that she never worked as a teacher again. During the war she was in Athens and that is where she stayed after the Liberation and where she died. My mother wasn?t very religious either. She was beautiful, a brunette, and combed her hair in a modern way; she went to the hairdresser's and did lots of different things with it. She always dressed according to the latest fashion.
