This is my mother's brother, Meir-Yosif Tsypkin with his little daughters. The photo was taken in 1947 at the Riga seaside, I don’t know by whom. That summer my uncle and his family went there as tourists. His daughters’ names were Lyudmila and Margarita. Lyudmila was born in 1938, she was a coeval of my sister Polina. Margarita seems to be younger. At present they both live in Germany. I got this photo from my uncle Meir by persistent asking a year or two after their trip to the seaside.
Meir-Yosif was called by his family members Misha, sometimes Yosha. He graduated from the Polytechnic College before the war. He graduated from the College as an engineer and research worker, technologist. He supervised the LAMITOMASH educational courses. He was found guilty for some administrative infringement and was put in prison for half a year for it.
During the war he was in the army. In my opinion he was a captain of the engineering and technical department. By now he has already died.
