This is my father's sister, Nety Herscu, at the wedding of Ilie Herscu, one of their brothers. She was very elegant. She's wearing a sort of top hat and long dress, and is smoking a cigarette. The picture was taken in January 1937 in Campulung. She was the bride's maid. She was a woman who knew how to live her life. My father, Burah Herscu, had two brothers and a sister. Ilie was born in 1906. He was a grain merchant, like my father. he married a woman named Reghina who was from Campulung la Tisa [Northwestern Bukovina] and spoke German fluently. I can tell you that she, her sister and mother stayed in Campulung and were deported to Transnistria; her mother died there and her sister returned. Nety was born in 1912, was a housewife and married a man named Iosif; he had some roots from Bukovina too, but his family had moved here when he was a child. I'm not sure whether he spoke German like my aunt. He was a watchmaker. They had a daughter, Dori, who's currently living in Israel.
