The USSR is your birthplace, Rob? That's rather unexpected. Moscow? Saint Petersburg?

I was four years old when we moved to Israel. That was in 1990. A huge wave of Soviet Jews (about a million) came to Israel when the Soviet Union collapsed.
I was born in Tashkent, where my grandfather's family had escaped to from the Nazis. I'm (mostly) of Eastern/Central European Jewish descent, though I do have a smattering of Slavic and Scandinavian added to the mix.

Yeah, those of my family who didn't make it to Tashkent didn't survive. My grandfather, though, joined the Red Army and made it all the way to Berlin.

I have been back (To Moscow and St. Petersburg, that is; not to Tashkent), though not for a while now. I don't have any recollections of Tashkent, save for a few mental images from my room back from when I was a baby.
