Four generations of an ordinary family that persevered in the face of the Pale of Settlement, the pogroms, the Bolshevik Revolution and the resulting wannabe workers’ paradise of the Soviet Union, two World Wars, Stalin’s purges and Khrushchev’s Thaw and Brezhnev’s morass, the communal apartments and shortages of everything, the habitual anti-Semitism, and the Jewish emigration of the 1970s to the bewildering, the incomprehensible Free World.

Enter the story of the four generations.

Take a look at the albums containing pictures of family, views of shtetls and cities where our family lived, and the old documents and pictures of things and events that illustrated the story.

An extensive collection of photographs authenticates the stories about the intricacies of Soviet reality.
