This is a wedding photo of my sister, Senyora Geron (nee Farhi), and her husband, Haim Geron. On the back of the photo there is an inscription in ink in the upper left corner which includes the date, 23rd August 1936, and a signature that cannot be read. In the middle, the words 'Farhi Family and Daniel Ruse ' are handwritten. The wedding took place in 1936, when I was 12 years old. The photo was taken for my aunt, Blanka Daniel, and her family. Senyora was born in 1915 in Shumen. She is still alive and lives in Israel. She graduated from the French College in Ruse. In 1936 she married Haim Geron, who had a glass shop. They have two children, Sami and Ernestin. In 1949 they left for Israel. Now my sister has a lingerie shop in Yafo and, although she is 90 years old, she still goes there once in a while. As a child Senyora was a very beautiful girl ? tall, slim and blue-eyed. She dressed elegantly, but not extravagantly, given that our mother taught us not to strive to stand out among the others. She was very sociable, and that quality was of great help to her in the business she ran later. Turkish weddings also took place in the Turkish bath, and even my sister Senyora was bathed there before her wedding because there was no mikveh. I remember that very well because I was a 12-year-old girl when my elder sister Senyora married Haim Geron. She was taken there a few days before her wedding. Everyone looked at her closely.
