This is what the theatrical producer Mikhail Galkin wrote :
“Thank you for having new wonderful author, which was missed by kids and adults for many years. Thank you - because of Dina’s short novels, the real life of our parents and grandparents would not be forgotten. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to touch and feel that almost forgotten time and get immense pleasure of that experience. Dina must continue writing and give us the joy of reading her stories, but the most important is to publish her books. We have so many people who do not even realize what are they missing and Dina’s responsibility to give them this joy too…”
