“Great-grandfather Ivan Konstantinov (my great-grandfather on my mother’s side) was a major, commander of the first infantry division. He went through the war, was wounded and hurt. He was hard of hearing. I remember what it was wiry and gray. Loved to babysit me when mom and grandma were at work. Bulls great-grandfather George (my grandmother’s father on my father’s side) passed all war, was a member of the first armored division. He was very tall and powerful man with huge hands. One of them was not middle and ring fingers. I remember he told me that before the capture of Berlin they were in the siege of Konigsberg. There was nothing and survived only those who are able to eat meat of the dead horses, dogs or even worse… scared to even talk. With Ivan Savicheva great-grandfather (father of my grandfather on my father’s side) unfortunately, I can not communicate. He was military service in 1937 and came to Odessa in 1944, where he received a severe wound. My grandmother always said, he is very burned, and then long was in the hospital. Was the senior Lieutenant, commander of the reconnaissance. All of them have had many accomplishments and awards. If I had the opportunity to talk to them, then of course it would be different understanding and attitude. I certainly wouldn’t ask them about the war because they wanted to forget these horrors, but unfortunately could not. I would be looking at them as a living miracle. I’d hugged, kissed them, and just said thank you!” – posted by Julia Savicheva.
