This picture was taken in Iasi in the 1900s. In the middle of this photo is my grandmother, Paula Perla Iancu, when she was a schoolgirl. The other two girls are her schoolmates. They wear uniforms and collars.
My grandmother was a pretty girl. She was born in 1892 in Vaslui county. Her maiden name had been Scharf. I knew her pretty well. Grandmother Paula Perla lived in Braila, with us. She had several sisters, but I don't know how many they were, or what their names were. Before saying anything else, I must say she was a beauty - and not just in the way in which we all speak of our grandparents. My grandmother was quite a woman. She was a perfect housewife. She was married twice: her first husband was a certain Iosif Feldman, and the second was called Haim Iancu. She lived in Barlad when she was with the former. I know that man was my mother's natural father.
