Every generation has its war
God preserve you from living through times of war or change
Wisdom of the East

1941, three years old. I remember the bombing, the wail of sirens against a beautiful dark-blue sky.
For some reason people think one war falls to the lot of each generation. This blue series marks my second war.

The city had grown smaller with the loss of 250 thousand lives. Two thirds of the factories and mills stopped work.

The number of deaths exceeded the birth rate.
Burials in a polythene bag instead of a coffin.
Going to hospital meant taking your own bed linen, syringes and medicines.
Rats are the first to abandon a sinking shop, tiny creatures...
Everyone must know: the old will die first.
More than two years ago my son Ilyusha went to live in a foreign country.
Thirty people froze to death in the street. My friend held an exhibition to commemorate the fact.

Twenty-two degrees below zero. For three winter months no heating in apartments.
My boots were stolen on a train. The thief was a girl of 12.
Barefoot, I apprehended her as she crept out the carriage.
My relatives’ flat was broken into and robbed.
Sometimes it is scary to enter the dark entryway.
The bank is withholding my money.
Stench of urine.
One photographer I know sold his camera and opened a restaurant.
Another breeds dogs.
A third became a healer.

From 1994 to 1995 wages tripled. But for months nobody is paid.
Prices are catching up. Nearly the same as in New York, or Berlin.
More and more shops selling western goods.
There are buyers, too.
Maybe it’s not such a bad thing if there are less people here...
But there are more Chinese...
«Everything will turn out fine!» the announcer said today.
