This is me, my wife Nina and my granddaughter Lena During my time of employment, I increased the personnel of our design bureau from ten to 120 people. I received a flat in Kreschatik, close to the stereo-film cinema. We worked with interiors of theaters, cinemas, and flats. I took part in many exhibitions and was awarded many medals there. I was living a very good life In the most difficult times - in the 60-70s - when Jews could not find a job, I used to tell my friends that nobody would touch me: such specialists as me could not be discharged. My family never discussed the issue of emigration. I knew too little about Israel. It is only now that I'm learning more and reading about it.
