we Lived to the address the Neva avenue (then it was the prospectus on October, 25th), d. 82, sq. 54.

In this apartment all blockade was lived by mine grandfather Kiselyov Peter Gavrilovich (the participant of 1 world war), grandmother Tatyana Jakovlevna and their younger daughter of Paradise. Oldest daughter Tamara (my mum) in 1942 has left in the city of Sverdlovsk to the husband working on Uralmashzavode.

Average son Ivan was missing.

When I was born, the grandmother has already died, the grandfather was very old and spoke about war a little, but at me some letters which he wrote to my mum to Sverdlovsk from blockade Leningrad were saved.

Reading these letters, I have not found lines of complaints, travails, requests for the help.
