Klara Yakolevna – Kiev, Ukraine

I received your letter, money and photo…Thank you so much. My son was very sick and passed away in 1955. After that I had an operation because the room where I live was so cold and small. I have a difficult life…

I am sorry for this letter. My writing is so bad and I am very old.

My mother and father were killed in Babi Yar.

It is so difficult, life. I think it would have been better if I died with them.

Most Jewish families have such difficult lives that they move away from here.
