This is a picture from the wedding of my aunt Laura. She was my mother's sister.

She got married in Thessalonica on 24th October 1927, to David Haguel, who was a son of Ha Giako Haguel, the great rabbi of bet din.

The bet din was the supreme Jewish court and I remember that when the rabbi died the whole community was really shocked; he was a very important figure at the time.

Laura joined us with her husband and their two sons and we all sat together around the traditional Pesach table.

My grandmother Doudoun Beraha had spent some time in Paris with her son Gastone, and then, before the war, she came to Thessalonica and stayed with her daughter Laura; unfortunately the Germans took all of them away.
