My grandmother, Matilda Kalef, is pictured here in front of the Acropolis with a tourist group. They were on their way to Palestine and stopped off in Athens first. On the top it says, "Trip to Palestine 1932 Athens Acropolis."
My grandmother traveled everywhere. She went to Israel and Egypt via Greece with a group. There was even a picture of her sitting on a camel. The Germans took that picture along with everything else we owned. That picture was on the wall in the house. The group she went with was comprised of Jews from Belgrade. She didn't intend to live in Palestine because Father was sick, immobile and dependent on other's help. I don't know if we had family there, if she had friends there, where she slept or if she brought back any souvenirs. When I look at that picture I start to laugh because I also love to travel; I am just like my grandmother - the same.
