In our politically correct era, E. M. Braverman would be called a man of limited capabilities, since he lost his leg while still a child (it was cut off up to the knee by a streetcar by which Musya – his home nickname – got hit) and was wearing an extremely uncomfortable and heavy artificial leg (at the time these were the only kind available). The artificial leg would often rub against the remaining flesh of the limb, and E. M. would feel and bear the pain at every move.
