This photo was taken in 1965 in Mukachevo in the construction company club. It was taken on the occasion of a visit from colleagues from the Ministry. During this visit I was presented with a banner as recognition for good work. I am the second from the right. There was a construction company in Mukachevo - Remont, Rem Stroj Upravlenia. Its director was also a Jew, Klein. He didn't have a school diploma. He had a house built, not in an honest manner, because he worked in an industry where there were sufficient construction materials. Because he didn't build it in an above-board manner, they threw him out of the function and the party. Once again, they put me in his place. They always put me in the place of someone they had thrown out. I was director there for 25 years. From there I went into retirement.
