The man was born in Cairo, but at a young age his family returned to Greece, first to the macedonian city of Naoussa and then to Salonika. He was involved in covert activities and participated in the resistance. He was jailed during the greek civil war and was liberated after the creation of Israel, under an agreement between the israekli and greek governments. In 1968 he left for the ex-USSR with his russian-jewish wife but had to return to Greece after the fall of the Soviet Union, where he had difficulties having his greek citizenship recognized (it was finally recognized in 1999). Currently in the Saul Modiano Old Age Home of the Salonika community of Greece. Interesting acciount of a generation who gave a lot for an ideal that came out to be illusory. 
In judeo-spanish the following "poem" of sorts:
 Esta parea de enfrente

  Todos estan sin de vente
  Es la parea del papion
  Al djepi les kamina raton.
  Esta la parea de los kelepoures
  de la victoria ya sonb kosures
  syen frankos ganan la semana
  en los bankos con arrankos
  te se faze la kara preta
  de los ver en la puerta
  y es ke van a salir aslakes
  i sin parlakes con el isaloun.

 (Los ke avlan espaniol korekto, kastiliano, ke no perkuran de enteder esto "poema")
