Efim Shpielberg’s mother's brother David Tuman and his fellow comrade

This is my mother's brother David Tuman (on the right) and his fellow comrade. This photo was taken in Tsaritsyn [today Volgograd] in 1917.

David was born in the end of the 1880s. During World War I he served in the tsarist army. After the revolution he went to the Red army. He took part in military action near Tsaritsyn at the beginning of the Civil War and then he returned to Odessa and joined Kotovski unit with his younger brothers Yosl and Etsl Tuman. All three brothers perished during the Civil War. This is all I know about them.
