This is my wife Libe with her brother Yakov Nagle at the Jewish Cemetery in Smerli, Riga. The photo was taken in 1995. My spouse's name is Libe-Leya Girshovna, Lyuba, maiden name Nagle. She worked with me at the same factory. She is from Ludza. She was born in 1936. My wife had no special education and finished a secondary school in Ludza. She was a young girl when her mother died. Her father Hirsh Nagle went with the children ? with Lyuba and her brother Yakov ? to live in Riga. She worked in different places. We had no chuppah at our wedding. We had only a civil wedding. We have no money and our wedding was really modest. I speak Russian with my wife, although she perfectly understands Yiddish. Her brother Yakov came from Israel in 1995. His common-law wife from Israel is named Ita. I have not been to Israel. I was in America. My spouse was in Israel. Lyuba's brother resides in Israel now. He rings us up almost each day, worrying about my granddaughter Lenochka. We warned her, that she shouldn't go and visit them. He lives in Gilo area, where fighting is going on all the time. We are worried. And he keeps inviting her - I'll come and take you there. His daughter and her family live in Israel, too.
