My maternal grandmother's surname was Levina (1870s-1942). Levins are considered to be people who bring religion to people (the name originates from the word Levite). My grandmother and grandfather had a house. My grandfather - Yakov Levin - worked in a mill, my grandmother - Mindl Levina - was a housewife, she had 10 children, but only six of them were alive by the beginning of the war. My mum was their first child and she was born in 1895.
