This is my mother's sister Polia Maidannik. This photo was taken in Zhmerinka in 1919.

My mother's second sister Polia was born in Zhmerinka in 1904. She was 13 years old when her parents died. She finished seven years of secondary school in Zhmerinka and after she moved to Odessa she began to work as an attendant at a hospital. She was single. I don’t know why she remained single since I always found her attractive. Before the war Polia finished a course for medical nurses. When the Great Patriotic War began Polia was mobilized to the army. She worked in a hospital at the front. She perished in 1942.
