: One day, when Mama Sadie & Baba Shemo went to visit friends, 14 of the girls from their home were stolen. Sadie & Shemo searched everywhere for the girls, but couldn't find them.
xxx Actually, here the story is a bit harder to clear up. I think Shemo bought some of the girls back - he managed to trace them - but he couldn't find all of them. BUT, it could be that he didn't find any of the stolen ones.... I need to ask more about this from my dad's cousin.... Anyway, Shemo was good friends with the local Muslim religious figures. My dad calls them "ayatollahs," but my dad's cousin says that "ayatollah" is not the right word, that they were just Muslim religious figures. BUT, Shemo was respected by these men - they respected him more than any other Christian holy men in the area & they held many meetings which he was invited to. Shemo stayed Orthodox his entire life, according to my dad's cousin. He was trained as a priest, but I don't know if he stayed one, or just became a local Christian holy man of some sort....
