I didn't notice that there is so much Russian speaking people :) Very interesting! English is international language, but it is surprise to meet here much people who can write something and understand Russian.

Nice to meet here in my Mailbox everybody!

Aysel,

My grandparents (all four) felt the same way about the Ukraine when they saw the Statue of Liberty from the ship's deck.

Hello Goodbye, when your grandparents left for America? They arrived all together?
Do you know anything about your grandparents homeland?

K_E and I are originally from Russia, but we moved quite a bit... you're right about Israel, we lived there for a long time  :) But now we're in New Zealand (and not planning to move anymore... I think!  ;D)

Dmitry,

They left after the Revolution in 1921.  They lived in the Novohrad-Volyns'kyy region of the Ukraine.  My maternal grandfather was a dairyman and my paternal grandfather was a farmer.

My grandparents married in Russia and in both families, my grandfathers came here first, earned some money so they could send for my grandmothers.  They started their families in New York.  This was a common scenario among Russian immigrants after the Revolution.

It was a struggle for them here during the Great Depression.  But they raised beautiful families.  On my father's side, all three children (my father, uncle and aunt) became doctors as did myself and my cousins.

A similar history for part of my family, Octie.  One of my father's aunts immigirated to Palestine with her husband and raised three children, two daughters and a son.  The oldest daughter was radicalized by an incident on her moshav and joined the Irgun.  She ultimately settled in New Zealand in 1952.  I met her while I was in Israel in 1989.  She was visiting her sister in Tel-Aviv.  She was a unique character as were all her Irgun friends who visited her during her stay.

Oh yeah, the Irgun (or Etzel)... we used to study about it at school back in Israel. Turbulent times indeed...  :-/
Our family (our parents and the two of us) moved to Israel one year after your visit, in 1990, and then we moved to South Africa just before the new millenium arrived.

Now just a history lesson, but an integral part of a nation's birth.  The turbulent times continue, sadly.

I'm afraid I don't want it to be completely russian. Russian is all around me in a real life. But of course it is partly russian as I'm russian and you and some others  ;)

It is a pity that during long history of Russia much russian people immigrated and still do it. There is such living conditions that not everybody want to live in :(
