About Dinoula Bacola

[from KKJSM site:]

Dinoula [Dinah] was born in 1874 in Ioannina. She was the only child of Jesoula and Rachel not to immigrate to the New World. She married Ezra Bakola and died in 1922 after giving birth to her 9th child. Unfortunately, Dinoula’s branch of the family would be almost completely destroyed in the Holocaust. Only Max, Dinoula’s oldest son, who immigrated to the United States in 1914, his younger brother Sion [born in 1920] and his sister, Bimbo [born in 1909] survived the Holocaust. Sion, Bimbo, her family and a nephew, Salvador, son of Jessoula survived. Salvador fought with the resistance was decorated by the Greek Government.

[from a book by JH & JK:]

Ezra Bacola was born in Egypt around 1877 and as a teenager moved to Janina Greece where he was taken in by the Colchamiro family. Here he met Dinah Colchamiro and they were married, about 1896, in Dinah’s home. Soon after they were married, Ezra and Dinah moved to Paramythia and he became a successful businessman, very respected by the whole town. They had 9 children. 6 boys and 3 girls.

While in Paramythia Dinah took very ill and she moved in with her brother Asser and his family in Janina (around 1915), and here her leg was amputated. But soon she was well and her husband came to Janina and took her home to Paramythia (Preveza) in the Epiros District of Greece. He took her back in a basket on a cart. Sadly, Dinoula died shortly after giving birth to her 9th child, Sion.
