My story is very typical for a Russian Jew.I was born in Kiev 1936, escaped with my mom from Hitler in July 1941, was opressed as a Jew in school, college and at work and finally escaped from communist paradise in 1977. Thank you HIAS for all your help.Couple of days ago I read again Sholom-Alehem 'Boy Motl'. How different was their emigration! They did not have HIAS.Thanks again.
