She completed her studies at a medical school and worked in the nursery room at the railway station in Kiev. Her husband, Boris Lensky (Lensky was his Party nickname), had been her brother Yevsey's friend since the civil war. After the war he graduated from the Medical Institute and became a famous surgeon. Boris perished during WWII. Nehama and her daughter Regina were evacuated with us to Tashkent After the war, Nehama returned to Kiev, where, until her death in 1969, she lived with her daughter, Regina. Regina died in 2001. Nehama's older son, Leonid, was sent to the front during the war. The war changed his personality. He became withdrawn and lived alone.
