This is me and my postwar family. From right to left: my uncle Genia Wainshelboim, his wife Sarrah is beside him. I am sitting on Sarrah's right, Uncle Genia's friend and his daughter are beside me, I don't know their names. This photo was taken in Kishinev in the mid-1950s when we were having a walk in the town. My father’s brother Genia worked with my father in the Jewish medical organization. He did some technical job. Genia married Sarrah, a Jewish girl, shortly before the Great Patriotic War. I was at his wedding. Genia and Sarrah stood under the chuppah since their parents insisted on it. He wasn’t a really religious man. During the war Genia, his wife and Grandmother Bobtsia were in evacuation somewhere in Central Asia. After the war they returned to Kishinev. He had no children. In the middle of the 1970s he and his wife moved to Israel where he died in the 1990s.
