Do you remember your first recollections of childhood?

You know, when I read that other people remember themselves when they were 3 or 4 years old, I do not remember. It seems to me that these recollections are just story telling. My very first recollections are from my first form …when I was at the reception class at school; there was a reception class at my school. When I have 6 years old I started going to school, there were lots of snow around, and my father came up to me. There. So, this is the only recollection from my early childhood. I was only six then and these are fragmentary memories. I cannot say that I can recollect something essential during my early years when I was three or four years old. Well, I attended the Jewish school.
