“Babushka”

Babushka. Life story of Maria Mitroi, née Covaliov – PDF. format

ICover Maria Mitroi think that the memoirs of my grandmother, Maria Mitroi, are interesting in a way that would span outside the coutry for at least four reasons:

–    it tells the story of two Russian families (Pavlov and Covaliov) whose destines were united at Tulcea;

–    it tells the story of a girl born of Russian blood, but Romanian by everything else, who became fatherless in 1942 during World War II;

–    it tells the story of a wife whose husband was imprisonied by the totalitarian Communist regime, with all their properties taken and no money left to take care of her children and mother;

–    finally, it tells the story of a lovely grandmother who is aged today 82;
