Vickie was born in the Soviet Union city of Yaroslavl, about 200 miles east of Moscow in 1941 in the heat of a fierce WWII battle for Moscow. After the war her family moved to Leningrad. She received her Master’s degree in Education (English) and taught college level courses. Vickie married a student in the PhD Electrical Engineering program. In 1976 at the age of 34, with her husband Joshua, her elderly parents and her 5-year-old daughter Anya, Vickie emigrated from the Soviet Union to the US. They were allowed to carry only $90 per person. The Jewish agency HIAS guided them in resettlement and supported them financially.
