This photograph shows my wife Erna’s father Moiz Uriyel Adoni who was born in Istanbul in 1895 and my oldest daughter Sara. I don't know which school he studied at but he is a primary school graduate. He learned French by practising. My father-in-law was someone I respected a lot. He was very knowledgeable on some subjects as well as being pleasant and cordial. Our oldest daughter Sara was born in 1948. All three of our daughters attended primary school at Isik Lisesi. Sara finished Saint Benoit French highschool later on. After completing her education she dated Erol Penso for 8 years and they were married in Neve Shalom on March 29th, 1970. They always lived on the European side, in a modern house. They raised two sons named Ceki (1972) and Niso(1974). Our daughter Sara always wished to study in college, while she was raising her family, (1997) she entered the university placement exam which is very hard and got accepted to the French Language and Literature faculty in Istanbul Üniversitesi, graduated in 4 years. . She has the right to translate and translates books and scientific articles. Their son Ceki has been married to a nice girl for two years, Niso on the other hand is engaged, G-d willing we will marry him in December. Currently we reside in the same apartment with our daughter.
