This is a picture of my older sister Broha Shapiro (née Pisarenko) and her school friends. She is the one on the left. The photo was taken in Gomel in 1935. My older sister was born on 31st December 1921. She got her name after our grandmother.

In 1941 my older brother Misha and Broha finished the 10th grade at a Jewish school and were thinking of continuing their studies. I was a very vivid boy and disturbed Misha and Broha when they prepared for their exams. After the war, Broha finished the Oil College in Bashkiria. In 1947 she married Isaak Shapiro and lived in Rostov.
