She speaks slowly and distinctly as if considering each and every word - this must be a reflection of her teaching career. A window was kept open and my grandmother sold her bread, cakes and pastries through that window. He read those Jewish books and took little interest in the surrounding. My father and his sisters could read and write in Yiddish and knew the Torah and the Talmud. Grandfather Boruch taught them the prayers and traditions. I don't know how often my grandfather and grandmother went to the synagogue in Ivnitsa.Evgenia holds herself up with dignity, but she is very friendly at the same time. My grandfather apparently didn't earn enough to feed the family and Grandmother Liebe became the breadwinner. Her business took her a lot of time and her children had to engage themselves. He also liked to write poems in Yiddish and Hebrew, but regretfully, they are all gone. I don't even know whether there was a synagogue there at all. At the beginning of the 20th century it had a population of about 100,000 people.
In the 1930s the Jewish school was closed and my grandfather lost his job.
He continued studying and reading religious books at home, he could do it the whole day then. Shortly after moving to Zhytomyr he became an apprentice to a watchmaker whose last name was Poliak. Poliak didn't charge them for education and accommodation, but my father had to work for him for free for two years.
After the [Russian] Revolution of 1917  she entered the Stomatology Faculty of Medical College in Kharkov. It's quite likely that he didn't care much being too absorbed in his books. He was a lecturer at the Pedagogical College in Zhytomyr. I don't remember their names or dates of birth. She was used to having her mother resolve all her problems. She studied by herself and entered Pedagogical College in Zhytomyr in 1930.
After finishing it she became a dentist in Zhytomyr. Grandmother Liebe was very positive about her daughter's marriage. Clara's husband was a nice man and earned well. My grandmother took care of the housework and cooking. When the Great Patriotic War began Clara's husband was arrested and accused of being a German spy since he had once studied in Germany. After the war she couldn't find a job of her qualification and went to work as a doctor at school. Her son lives in Lipetsk, Russia [about 500 km from Moscow]. After finishing it she entered the Faculty of Philology at Kharkov University. Another student that came from Zhytomyr wrote a report saying that she was an alien element since she wrote in her application form that her parents were poor people while her mother was a shopkeeper. She didn't have a store and only sold bread that she made, but who would have believed that?
My grandfather couldn't get any job, so my grandmother began to sell her baked goods again. My father stayed in his shop after his training was over and worked there until he got married.
