Country name at time of photo:PalestineCountry name today:Israel
This is my sister Rozalia Navon, nee Elazar, in Palestine in the 1930s. She is the one on the very left. I don?t know the other people. The following is written on the back of the photo: 'To my dear ones, memories from Palestine, Rozalia' Rozalia was from my father's first marriage to Matilda Baruh. Rozalia was twelve years older than me. She was born in 1908. I remember that she read a lot and she taught me to read and be interested in more things than what they taught us at school. In 1932 Rozalia left for Israel [Palestine before 1948] and she still lives there today - in Holon. She married and now she is called Shoshana Navon. She has two children, Emanuel [born in 1936] and Tslila [born in July 1940]. She worked as a children's teacher in Bulgaria; she graduated from the Pedagogy Institute in Shoumen as a children's teacher. She was very beautiful and a good teacher - children loved her a lot. After the 1950s my sister Rozalia came to visit us a couple of times, but I didn't go to Israel until 1989 although she had invited both our sister Dora and me. We didn't go to Israel, because we knew there was a special attitude towards people going there, especially if they had a responsible state job.
