Kobe Mosque with young Hayrullah Absi

Guess which one is the Tatar?

I really like this picture.

I think this is my Uncle Hayrullah (without fez) on the minaret of the Mosque in Kobe, Japan.
My Father and Uncle were born in Kobe, and my Grandfather died there.

I never met Hayrullah Absi. He was born in Japan, served in the military as a Turkish Soldier fighting alongside Americans in the Korean War. He had a cat called Sheba and was very well loved. He passed away in Turkey.
