Abram Karmazin’s wife Manya Men and son Mikhail Karmazin

My wife Manya Men and son Mikhail Karmazin in Alma-Ata In 1938 our son Mihail was born. I didn't have him circumcised and thought that I was going to have a problem with my father. But he was no longer religious and didn't raise this subject. . In 1941 the Great Patriotic War began. Thanks to Rosa that worked at the Russian Drama theater our family could go to the evacuation in Alma-Ata ( the capital of Kazakh SSR) pretending that we were employees at the theater. We left in July 1941. In Alma-Ata we felt that we were Jews. We couldn't find a job. My wife found one as an accountant at a small office. Manya's daughter Ella took my son to the kindergarten.
