Photo taken in:LeningradYear when photo was taken:1926Country name at time of photo:Soviet UnionCountry name today:Russia
This photograph was taken one month before my birth.
My mother told me how the photographer labored to position everyone
in such a manner so that her stomach was hidden from view.
In 1930, my parents married. They had known each other for a long time, since studying together in Starodub.
However, in my mother's words, during school, 'Father didn't notice me.'
Then they met in the Starodub Zemlyachestva in Leningrad and in Starodub.
These meetings led to the forming of our family. In 1931 I was born.
