This is my son Rafail Voloshyn - as a drummer of a pioneer unit at school. This photo was taken in Kiev in 1952. After finishing a secondary school my son entered the Faculty of Machine Building at Voronezh Polytechnic College. I can't remember why he didn't continue his studies in Kiev. I don't think it had anything to do with anti-Semitism. In Russia anti-Semitism was no different from Ukraine. After finishing this college my son got a job assignment in Moscow. He is a foreman in a printing house. Rafail was married twice. His first wife was a ballerina of the Bolshoy Theater in Moscow. Unfortunately, their marriage failed. When my some came home from work his wife was leaving for work. She returned when he was asleep and he left in the morning when she was sleeping after a performance. They hardly ever saw each other and a few years later they divorced. Their daughter Victoria was born in 1964. Victoria is married. Her surname in marriage is Logvinskaya.
