Lev’s wife

This is my wife Lidia Naumovna Yagupolskaya in Kiev.

I met my future life Lidia Naumovna Kuritskaya in the University. She was born in a very intelligent family in Kiev in 1925.

Elena Yatsemirskaya, my wife's mother, was a surgeon. During the war she was on the First Ukrainian front and after the war she worked at the Children's hospital in Kiev. Naum Kuritskiy, my wife's father, was an engineer, a bridge designer. He was involved in the construction of a bridge across Oder when our army was advancing toward Berlin.

Lev and his aunts Vera and Betia and Ania

My father's sisters Vera and Betia and Ania and I.

We lived in a nice house in Uman. It was a brick house consisting of 6 or 7 rooms. There were 4 of us: my father, my mother, my younger sister and I.
When I was under 5 years of age a German woman came into our house and said that she would live in the spare room that we had and teach me German. She was a very good teacher and I spoke fluent German when I was 5 or 6 years old.

This is my daughter's wedding. My daughter Ludmila Vinarskaya (Trovskaya) and my son-in-law Mikhail Vinarskiy and I. Photo made in Kiev in 1984.

In 1966 our daughter Ludmila was born. She studied well at school but she couldn't enter the Institute because of her being a Jew. She finished a course of kindergarten nurses, computer school and hairdresser's school. Ludmila has several professions but she cannot work. She has four children to take care of.
