This is a picture of Boris Shoov, my mother's brother, and his wife Emilia. The photo was taken in Moscow in the 1920s. Uncle Boris was born in 1897. He moved to Moscow after the Civil War. He was very ill with tuberculosis. In Moscow he worked as an accountant assistant in some shop. He had a wife, Emilia, and two children: his son Efim and his daughter Irina. They lived a very modest if not poor life. During the war he and his family were in evacuation. He died of tuberculosis around 1947 in Moscow. His wife Emilia was a cashier in a cinema theater. She died in the early 1990s. His children Efim and Irina emigrated. Efim lives in America and Irina lives in Israel.
