This is the wedding photograph of my brother Haim Gershon (in the back) and Susana, taken in Bat Yam in 1966. Susana's sister, Angela, is the one on the right, behind her is her husband Josif and next to her is their daughter. My parents, Albert and Sarina Gershon, are on the left.

My brother was born on 16th January 1929 in Plovdiv. He went to kindergarten there. He started school in Sofia and he got as far as the 3rd class when they interned us to Pleven. Practically he didn't manage to get education while he lived in Bulgaria. He went to work after we came back to Sofia. He was a skilful boy and he started to work in a shoemaker's workshop. He made a pair of lovely tourist shoes for everyone in the family before he left for Israel. He got interested in mechanics after he went to Israel, he graduated as a 'mazger' mechanic there and after that he became a teacher. He has created big construction projects in metallurgy.

His wife is from Bulgaria and she moved to Israel in 1948 with her family. Susana worked as a nurse and retired after that. They live in Bat Yam.
