This is the wedding of Leib Bograd's daughter Leya in the USA in 1939.

Leib Bograd is sitting, Leya (the 4th from the left) is standing behind him. These are all, whom I know. My father kept this photograph.

My grandfather’s younger brother Leib moved to the USA before the revolution of 1917. He died there. He had five children.

I only know about his daughter, Leya, born in the USA in 1920. We met in the 1990s. Though I knew about her before, we couldn't communicate since this wasn't allowed in the former USSR and was punishable.

We met, when I visited the USA, and she visited me in Moscow.
