My Trip to Turkey (2)

The lady in blue is originally Yugoslavian, but migrated to Sweden in her early years. She was born on 3rd September, 1939, the beginning of WWII. A baby born in the gunfire! When she was 3, her parents were sent into jail for being reported as communists, so she and her sister were sent to live in orphanage. Fear contributed to her ear infection, but she still learned seven languages by reading lips! And she even became a professional language instructor!


Synagogue of the Jew. The Jewish people suffered a lot in the history for being repressed and demobilized. But under the rule of Ottoman Turks, the Jews were welcomed into the country, and they contributed a lot to the development of the country. Yet today the number of Jewish people in Turkey is no more than 25,000, and they reside in a relatively hermetic community. The Jews remain a mysterious group of people to outsiders.
