This is a picture of my father's brother Aron Zeldovich. The photo was taken in Austria in 1916. My grandparents Solomon and Leya Zeldovich (nee Lichtenzon) had seven children: Rosa, Elizabeth, Boris, Leo, my father Samuel, Aron and Manya. The family was wealthy and all children got a good education. Aron was born in Nikolaev in 1890. Aron finished secondary school and a technical college in Moscow. During World War I he served in the tsarist army and was in captivity in Austria. He told his family that Germans treated him well when he was in captivity. He returned to Russia in 1918. Aron got married in 1921. His wife's name was Sarah. They had a son called Lyoma. In the 1930s Aron and his family moved to Odessa where he was superintendent in a shop of the garment factory. After the war Aron continued to work as a shop superintendent at the garment factory. He died in Odessa in 1957. His wife and son moved to Australia in the early 1970s, and, after a few years, further on to the US. His wife died in the 1980s, and his son works as a doctor in America.
