That's honest: how much I live, I hear so much, that Odessa is not the same. Actually, and moved to take up this book the phrase of my distant relative, about thirty-five years old:
- Yes, Odessa is not the same!
If you consider that he was taken to America in 1989, that is, eight years old, it is clear that he could judge the authenticity of Odessa quite justifiably and sensibly.
Having ridiculed a relative, I became thoughtful about what kind of it is Odessa Odessa, if from generation to generation it is not THAT yes not THAT. And I called photographer Sergey Gevelyuk on a trip. And we, armed with cameras, went to ourselves, where the objective looks. Consider that we were looking for Odessa. Tu Odessa, which is preserved - and in places almost not preserved! - no matter what. And this is what happened. Before you Odessa without embellishment. Such as there is. I, talking about her, paid less attention to houses, and more to people who lived in them. They were extraordinary people. But after all, the city that we are looking for is also unusual. However, judge for yourself.
