Here are my husband Salvator and his father Marko Israel. The photo was taken in Budapest in 1927. Marko Israel was a very strict and demanding man. My husband wanted to become an agronomy specialist, but his father didn't allow him to and sent him to France to study medicine. But later Salvator didn't regret that. Salvator went to study in France, Montpelier, and graduated in Paris as a medical doctor. He lived in France for ten years and after he graduated, he became an assistant in the university. Then he had to go back to Bulgaria, because he could not support himself. On his return in 1938, he worked for a while in the state hospital in Plovdiv and then opened his own medical practice where he worked until 1941. That year he was mobilized as a district physician and later as a municipal physician in Karnobat during the war. That's how we met. In 1942 we married in Karnobat.
