Rafael Genis and his employees

In this photo you can see the employees of our trading base on the Communist Subbotnik. I am down on the right; we are cleaning the territory of the base. The photo was taken in Telsiai in 1965. In 1947 I met my master Shilenis, who also told me many things. He worked for the regional Ispolkom, and helped me very much. I was given an apartment ? with a large room and a kitchen. I was ready to accept any job. First, I was asked if I knew how to make sausage. They brought me a cow and I made the sausage myself. I was given money and went to Klaipeda. I bought a sausage-making machine. My boss, a Jew called Germanis wasn?t a decent man and misappropriated almost all the sausage. I didn't want to work with him and be liable for larceny. I left him and soon I became the director of an industrial enterprise. It didn't exist for a long time. Then I was in charge of a logistics department in a car fleet. I changed those jobs within a year and in 1948 I started working in the road department of the Ispolkom as an engineer of asphalting the road Telsiai-Plunge.
