Interview with Ruben Farro, December 23, 1981:

“One of my forefathers by the name of Yehuda, de ShmuelFarro, was called from Amsterdam to Curacao in the year 1590 and died in Curacao in the year 1625. We have a picture of his grave dating from that date. … I started in Amsterdam at the age of five in a school called the Elte School … My father had taught us at an early age, (the age of four-and-a-half) to read and write Hebrew in the Rashi script. The Sephardim in Amsterdam didn’t use the modern Hebrew script …”
