This is me (the first to the left) in the dining room at Hesed during the first Pascal seder. Fira is next to me. I didn’t know her very well, she just sat next to me at the table. The picture was taken in Kishinev in 2003.
When I start thinking about my life, I can't say why I'm alone, or why I remained single. First of all, I was very shy and had an inferior complex and secondly, I wanted the maximum. I fell in love with interesting people, who paid no attention to me, and those who wanted to date me weren't interesting in my view. That's life.
