This is me, Saul Rotariu, when I was eight or nine months old; the photograph was taken in Hanesti, in the very house where I was born. It was in 1938. I was born in 1937, my brother in 1939, and my sister in 1941.
I attended cheder in Saveni. Usually children attended cheder after they were four. I also attended it while going to regular school. I attended the cheder when I was three or four, and they taught us to read, translate from the Torah.
