thanks for the calendars that you sent. I love seeing the old pics of some of my relatives. And i’m sure there’s a few more in there that are my distant cousins that i’m not even aware of. Remember, My great grandmas name was Caden Hasson. Heck, maybe Howard, you and me are all related in some way. Thanks again,

My Father, Aaron Joseph Franco, son of Joseph Chai Franco and Rachel Capuja, was born in Rodhos where is now resting in peace in the Jewish Cemetery.
My Grandfather and Great-grandfathers were Ravs. My father emigrated to Congo at very young age, prior to the Nazi occupation, where he spent his working life. I grew up in Rome, where my Father decided to transfer the family, accepting to commute from Africa.
I live in Del Mar, California, I am an Immunologist in the School of Medicine at the University California San Diego.
My Father brothers and sisters: Ruben, Sol, Liv, Marie, Hillel, Herzel and Laura Franco maybe recognized as children in some of the pictures in the Museum in Rodhos. Shalom lachem Y Mazal alto, Chai!

In 1970 I went to Rhodes for a vacation from London with my sister,, we discovered the four cemeteries (Italian, Greek, Turkish and Jewish) on the outskirts of town. Went into the Jewish cemetery to pay respects and leave a few stones. We were amazed to come across the memorial to the Jews of the deportation to Auschwitz. In July 1944 with the Russians pouring in from the East and the Allies having a foothold in Normandy, could the Germans waste much needed resources to deport the Jews of Rhodes? Were they so terrified of these peaceful people? JUST CARRYING OUT ORDERS……………… I think not… May they rot in torment wherever they are….. Stan Shaw
