This is me with my father Shulim Manilov during my stay in Kharkov with my parents. The picture was taken in Kharkov in 1965. After my military career i worked as a teacher. I was supposed to get higher education. I liked working at school, but I didn't want to teach civil defense for ever. I entered the evening history classes at the Teachers' Training Institute. It was a hard period for my family. After teaching, I attended classes at the institute. I spent my spare time preparing for the classes at school and doing homework. I hardly had any time to spend with my family. My wife had to take care of everything. There were lots of things to do - we had had two children by that time. Diana, who was born in 1950 and our son Vladimir, who was born in 1957. I graduated from the institute with honors and managed to do my post-graduate in spite of the fact that anti-Semitism didn't vanish after the Twentieth Party Congress. After graduating, I kept working at the school, but teaching a different subject - the history of the USSR. I worked at the school until 1970 and went to work for the technical vocational school as a teacher of history and esthetics. I worked there for ten years, until 1980. My parents and my sisters came back to Kharkov from evacuation in late 1944, shortly after the liberation of the city. The tractor plant, where my father worked before the war, was transferred to the city as well. My father kept working at the Kharkov tractor plant and my mother remained a housewife. Almost every year we went to see them, when we were on vacation. We also wrote to them on a regular basis.
