My grandfather older brother Haim's grandson Monia. Monia, his parents and the whole family were killed by fascists near Kerch in October 1941. This photo was taken in 1940. My grandfather sent it to us in Tbilisi for the memory. My maternal great grandfather Zalman Blumenzweig, an outstanding strong redhead man, was a loader in the Odessa dock. My great grandfather was very religious. He prayed every morning, went to the synagogue, though it didn't keep him from using 'juicy' jargon of Odessa dockers. He had three sons: I don't know the name of the oldest one, the middle son's name was Haim and the youngest son was my grandfather Abram. They went to cheder and this was all education they got. The two older sons followed into their father's steps working as loaders in the dock. As for Haim, he lived as long as the beginning of the Great Patriotic War. He, his son, daughter-in-law and his little grandson Monia perished during the German massacre of the Jews of Odessa in 1941.
