Olga’s Story


Here is a story from a woman who couldn’t be named a Jewish name because of where she lived.

Just before I was born my Grandpa Gezshkl passed away. So my parents wanted (to) name me Golda. But growing up in (the) USSR it was not (a) good idea to give a child so Jewish (a) name. So, they translated Golda to Olga.
