Example text

The relations of members of the Yanovsky family and their Jewish neighbors were particularly fine, marked by love, warmth, openness, vivacity, willingness to compromise with others and mutual help. Even when members of the family were angry with one another, the problems between them were resolved in a candid and open way, albeit at times in a somewhat rough manner – but by this means all conflicts were determined and no memory of them was left. Thus: Meanwhile, in grandma and grandpa’s apartment there was preholiday concern and commotion.

Thus, the author describes the visit of Sasha and her father to the factory owner, Vladimir Ivanovich. They arrive at the owner’s office while the workers are organising a strike and demanding an increase in salary. Vladimir Ivanovich is angry at the ‘arrogance’ of the workers who are asking him – or so he claims – for a higher salary than that accepted in the labour market at that time. By contrast, Sasha’s father, Dr Yakov Yanovsky, supports the demands of the workers, whose income is very small.

Are your questions ripe? ’ Now is my time! ] these are most wonderful moments! 16 But her father does not always respond to Sasha’s initiatives in such a positive and encouraging manner. At times he objects to her actions, but even then he is always right; he is the supreme judge, Sasha’s conscience and mind. On occasion he punishes her, but even then she identifies with him, justifies him and blames herself. Her father is a tremendous moral presence standing over Sasha, a kind of ethical and spiritual ideal.
