Jemma Grinberg's grandfather Shloime Deich

My grandfather Shloime Deich. The photo was taken in Vinnitsa in 1916. My grandfather Shloime was born in 1865 in one of the Jewish towns in the province of Vinnitsa. My grandmother Rivka Leibovna Deich (maiden name Misserov) lived in Vinnitsa. After they got married my grandfather went to live with her and her family. In a few years they bought a house and my grandfather became a pharmacist. My grandfather Shloime was shot by bandits during the civil war. The Bolsheviks expropriated his pharmacy and the family had to split up, in order to find work and accommodation. They moved to Kiev.
