This is the wedding photograph of my father's sister, Rasela Smil, and her husband, Iser Smil.

My father had a sister, her name was Rasela. She was married, her husband's name was Iser Smil - Smil was his family name. They lived here, in Botosani, as well, my uncle had a grocer's shop here in Botosani, and he was employed at a gas station after the war. My uncle sometimes performed the religious service at the synagogue that I attended as a child, for he had the necessary knowledge.

He died here, in Botosani, and my aunt left with the children to Israel in 1965. They had 2 children, a daughter - Caspi - and a son - Lica Smil. They have families of their own now, children, they also have grandchildren. In 1969, when I traveled to Israel, my cousin Lica Smil lived in Trumpeldor - a village, a small town near Rosh Haniqra [Kefar Rosh Haniqra], a few kilometers from the border with Lebanon -, he lives in Naharia now. I still keep in touch with them, but very rarely.
