Franco Marie OHC.JPG

Marie Franco Franco was born, raised and educated in Rhodes (Greece). Her maiden name is Franco too (although the two families are only distantly related). Her family is scattered all around the world in Europe (Belgium), Africa (Belgian Congo/Zaire), Italy and other places. She was 20 years old and a schoolteacher when Sam Franco, who had immigrated to the United States with several of his brothers, came to Rhodes to find a bride. Marie and Sam were married in 1928 and Marie immigrated to Atlanta, Georgia with her new husband. Marie had never been off the island of Rhodes and she arrived in New York the evening President Hebert Hoover was elected. Marie discusses her family and childhood on Rhodes, the customs of Sephardic Jews Rhodes and Greece and her elaborate marriage to Sam. Sam owned a liquor store and delicatessen in Atlanta. Marie remembers the relationship of the Ashkenazi and Sephardic community (often troubled), the Sephardic culture (language and cooking), the Jewish neighborhoods, her family's businesses, her work supporting Jewish soldiers in World War II, the founding and growth of Or Ve Shalom and her activities in Hadassah and as an officer and head of the sisterhood at Or Ve Shalom.
