In this photo are my husband Mark and myself.
The photo was taken in Leningrad in January of 1956. On the 25th of December, 1955, I buried my beloved Uncle Emmanuil, mother's brother, who did so much good for our family. On the 27th of December I prematurely gave birth to my daughter, who I named Emma in honor of my uncle. This photo was taken to commemorate the birth of our daughter. I am 24 in this photo and my husband is 22. Before this I graduated from the geography department of the Leningrad Gertzen Pedagogical Institute and worked as a geography teacher at school. My husband finished the Minsk higher military academy of rocketeering and served in Leningrad region. We were married in 1954, but met earlier, when I was still studying at the institute and he was at the radio college in the city of Pushkin, Leningrad region. I share the fate of all officers' wives.
