Moises “Maurice” Bramnik was born in 1924 in the Ukraine. When he was one, his family left Russia and moved to Havana, Cuba, in order to move away from the communist regime. Maurice met his wife, Esther, in 1956, and they had two children together while still in Cuba. He attended the University of Havana for two years studying civil engineering before he and his family left Cuba to come to the United States. After a brief time in Miami, they finally settled in Dallas with the help of Jewish Family Service and have since fallen in love with the country they now call home.
