This is a photo of three sisters of my husband, Salvator Israel. From left to right: Rene, Sarika and Rashel. My husband had five sisters but Elizabeth and Hanika are not in the photo. This picture was taken in Budapest in the 1910s. Rene got married to Iosif Israel, who was a first cousin of hers, the son of her father's brother. Everyone was against their marriage, but they did it at the cost of not having any children, because of the blood relationship between them. My husband's father, Marko Israel, was a very strict man, but he wasn?t able to prevent their marriage. When they lived in Bulgaria, Iosif was a very respected lawyer. After World War II Rene, Iosif and Sarika went to live in Israel. Sarika worked in some kind of ministry but I don?t know exactly which. She was very well educated and knew many languages. One year later, after they had moved to Israel, Iosif got paralyzed after a heart attack. Sarika and Rene devoted their lives to look after him. Both sisters and Iosif lived together. Rene had a pharmacy on the first floor of her house and so she could work and look after Iosif, who was bedridden until the end of his life. Rashel also went to live in Israel in 1948. Rashel's husband is Solomon Perets. They have two daughters, Lunchy and Hanika.
