In this photo, taken by my father in the late 1930s, on the right you can see the house on Viru Street where our family lived before the war. My father and grandfather had their dental office in this same house. When we returned to Tallinn, this house was no longer there. It was ruined by bombing in Tallinn in 1944.

I loved children and was dreaming of having a little brother. Whenever my family asked me what kind of gift I wanted, I always replied: a brother. Adults always laughed at this for some reason, giving me dolls or drawing albums, etc.

This is me and my great-grandmother Lea Chapkowski having a walk. This photo was taken in Tallinn in 1937, a few months before my great-grandmother died.
My grandparents loved me a lot. My grandmother and my grandfather’s sister Riva took care of me. The whole family loved and pampered me. After my father graduated from Tartu University my parents moved to Tallinn. My parents rented an apartment, and I returned to my parents. Initially they rented a smaller apartment in Imante Street. I have very dim memories of this period.
