This picture was taken in 1962 when our whole family was relaxing at the dacha in Sestroretsk, in the Leningrad region. In this resort city on the banks of the Gulf of Finland and Lake Razliv, many Jewish families from Leningrad vacationed in the summertime. Thus among anti-Semitists it is called 'Zhidoretsk.'

In the photograph in the first row at the bottom sitting from left to right are: me, my daughter Anya, my wife Galina, my mother Estra Moiseevna. In the second row stands my father Moisei Yakovlevich.

In 1959 I married my coworker Galina Zotova, and our daughter Anna was born in 1960. She is two years old in this photograph. At this time my mother had already retired due to illness, while my father still worked at the Gipromez Institute.
