This photo shows my grandfather's younger sister Mina Maltsena.
She was 20, when this photography was taken in the M. Tevelev photo studio in Vitebsk in 1910 and was given to my grandfather Yuli for the memory.
Mina Maltsena’s Jewish name was Minush. Her last name was Maltsena after her husband.
She had a son named Aaron, who perished during the Great Patriotic War, and a daughter, Ania Artamonova.
I went to Aunt Minush's funeral in 1978. She was 88 and the youngest. She was buried in the Vostriakovskoye town cemetery, in the Jewish section, and no rituals were observed.
