This is my aunt Hanna, my mother's sister, with her husband, Solomon Kaplan.

The picture was taken in 1930 in Leningrad on the occasion of their wedding.

The fourth daughter of my grandparents, Hanna, was born in 1907. She finished school and later the Faculty of Biology of Minsk University in 1930.

In the same year she married Solomon Kaplan, who graduated from the Leningrad Polytechnic Institute. He worked as an engineer all his life at various civil plants. He stayed in Leningrad during the blockade and survived. He died in 1984 and was buried in Leningrad at the Jewish cemetery.

They had two children. Galina was a German language interpreter, who also knew several other languages; she is now retired.

Their son Ilya was born in 1945 after the war. He still works at the plant formerly named after Sverdlov. His wife Natalia is an engineer.

They have two daughters, both graduated from the Polytechnic Institute and both married their fellow-students and both live in the USA. Both have children.

Hanna worked as a librarian, she died in 2000 in St. Petersburg.
She was buried at the Jewish cemetery.
