On the left is my father Iosif Tets, on the right is Mama’s sister Ida's husband Ilia Freidus. They were friends. Ilia and his family lived in Jekabpils with my maternal grandmother. We visited them twice. This photo was taken in Jekabpils in 1925.

Mama's younger sister Ida married Ilia Freidus, a Jewish man from Liepaja. Ilia was a pharmacist and owned a pharmacy. They had two children. Their older daughter's name was Sara, and the younger one's name was Glika. Ida was a housewife. Ida and her family lived with Grandmother in her house. Ida was the only one of all children, who stayed in Liepaja. I have bright memories about that house. When at school, I often spent my summer vacations with my relatives. This was a wooden house. There was a front door to Ilia's pharmacy on one side of the house. On the other side there was a front door to the living quarters.
