April 12 I took part in the meeting at the St.Petersburg Art Museum devoted to the memory of Orbeli brothers. About the life and activity of Iosif Orbeli the excellent report was maden by the Hermitage scientific worker Elena Solomakha,academician Nikolay Veselkin told us about physiologist Leon Orbeli,
me about alder brother Ruben Orbeli and his works on a history of diving and underwater archaeology.
The retelling of the content of these presentations and discussion would occupy too much space. Allow me to express only
idea common for all participants. Orbeli brothers were different, they had different professions and different destiny, but all brothers
at the era of great examination of conscience safe their human dignity.
