The only photo of my mother's sister Celia, who had a hole in her heart and died at the age of 15 months in 1915, before my mother was born.

Miriam - my grandfather Osias Moses's first wife

She died of typhus at the age of 25, leaving four children. On her deathbed she asked her best friend, my grandmother, Ruchel, to take care of her children. Ruchel married Miriam's husband and together they had my father. She raised Miriam's children as her own.
