In his letter he described his duties in the transport company and expressed his deep feelings of love for his wife Berta and children: Ida, Sonia and Lisa, all residing in Leningrad. The collection also contains a photograph of Ida (born May 29, 1929 ) and Sofiya Taborinsky (Anna Mednik's grandmother and great aunt), taken in early June 1941 in Leningrad, a few months before the siege of that city. Shmul Taborinsky (1884-1941) was killed in action on August 21, 1941. His two younger daughters: Sonia and Lisa died of hunger during the siege of Leningrad in 1942.
