This is a photo of Liza, the wife of my brother Sabetay Yulzari, with her son Misho and my mother Rebecca Yulzari, nee Perets (the first from right) with the other son of Liza, Leon. The maid is standing in the back. The photo was taken in our yard in Karnobat in the 1930s. My father's first wife passed away. I don?t know the exact cause, but I know that she had been bedridden for quite some time, because my sisters used to tell me how they did all the household chores then. From his first wife my father had six children - Sabetay, Jacques, Sophie, Buka, Ana, Albert. The photo was taken in our garden. We had a big garden where we grew fruit trees - cherries, morello cherries, peaches and many others. This garden was the pride of my father. We all worked in it and we liked it very much, although there was much work to be done. I remember many summer evenings when all the family was gathered at the table under the vine. There was laughter and we played games.
