October 12th, 1932

75 years ago on October 12th my grandfather, David Bellel, died in an industrial accident at United Kimono Mfg at 521 Broadway. To my father, who was 11 at the time, it was an earth shattering event (a link to a post I did on this last year). It was one which I think he never recovered. I went to pay my respects on October 12th and took pictures of the grave sites of many of the others at the Brotherhood of the Society of Janina at Old Mount Carmel Cemetery in Queens. I created a slide show movie with those images. I used the song "Ragizi Apopse" from my Greek Musical Odyssey CD. I hope the lyrics aren't inappropriate in any way, the sad musical liturgy-like possibilities I "auditioned" were too depressing.
