This photograph is my older brother Sabetay Niso Özlevi's wedding picture in 1964. Top row, from left to right, my youngest brother Yasar Özlevi, next to him Lüsi Özlevi, we were engaged then, myself, middle brother Selim Özlevi, my father Yasef Pepo Özlevi, my brother’s wife Neli Nahmiyas Özlevi, my older brother and my mother. That day we left the temple, the best photographer of the times was Tanju in Osmanbey, we went there to take pictures after the wedding.My older brother Sabetay Özlevi, he is 20 months older, he was born in Edirne in 1934, the one younger than me, Selim was born in 1941, and Yasar was born in 1949.Because we were born close together with Sabetay, we started working together and were always together until we moved from Edirne to Istanbul on Jan. 1st, 1969. Even though we were 20 months apart, we grew up together, I tried to adapt to his age. Even our friends were together, anyways our friends were usually from my age group. He studied in Edirne highschool till 3rd grade in junior high. In 1964, he married Neli Nahmiyas who lived in Istanbul but was originally from Bursa. They lived in Edirne. He had two children named Yusuf and Hayati.
