This photograph was taken in Israel on 9th May 1988.
It was taken by one of the ceremony participants. All the people celebrated Victory Day.
Unfortunately my sister is hardly visible on this photo, but it is dear to me, because it gives an impression about lots of people in Israel, who survived World War II. And my sister has good reasons to be among them.
My sister was born on 18th May 1924 in Berlin. Her name was Margotte. She was very beautiful, in contrast to me. She attended the same Jewish school as me. Later, already in Leningrad, before the war broke out, she managed to finish nine grades.
After the end of the war she entered a Pharmaceutical Technical School. She finished it and worked as a pharmacist all her life: at first in Priozersk of Leningrad region, later in Leningrad, and then in Israel.
My sister was married twice. Her first husband was a camera-man. He was at the front line during the war. His name was Vladimir Alexandrovich Galperovich.
He shot films about the Leningrad region and traveled much around it. Once, having arrived in Priozersk he met my sister and fell in love with her: she was a real beauty. Soon they got married, and moved to Leningrad.
They lived in her husband’s apartment.
Unfortunately Vladimir Alexandrovich died of a heart attack when he was only
57 years old.
In 1974 my sister got married for the second time. Her second husband was 13 years older. He was a hairdresser. His name was Abram Supyan.
In 1976 they immigrated to Israel.
