Today we hire a new original article from the series “Night fucking stories”. I do not know how anyone, but I find it interesting to trace the fate of different people that have left their mark in history. Yes, of course, and the Professor Sokolov from the same series. However, despite such a loud final chord in his biography, Professor Sokolov is still not the largest size in comparison with Eternity. And give us something solid. If we are to beat, so from the guns of the main caliber. For the way of the man it attracts not small, and majestic. Here we follow the fate of one group of major historical figures. Well, at least occupied a certain position at a certain historical period. So.

Our guest is the book by I. L. Auerbach “From crime to labor”, published in the USSR in 1936 in the publishing house of ogiz (I bet you only heard about DETGIZ).

IDA Leonidovna lucky as few authors monographs no luck. Native party and the government gave her the opportunity not only to study the question of reforging the criminal mind of the prisoners labour, but, so to speak, touch it with their hands inside.

In June 1937, after a quarter after the arrest of Henry Grigorievca Berry, IDA Auerbach was dismissed from the Prosecutor’s office as “a family member of a traitor to the Motherland” and exiled in exile in Orenburg. Soon, however, responsible comrades came to their senses and corrected their mistake by sending Leonidovna Go straight to the study of labor reforging in Temlag for a period of 8 years. Since years in a labor camp, apparently, was enough to study the issue, and her husband, Heinrich Grigorievich shot in June 1938, the author of the monograph “From crime to labor,” wrote a new sentence. This time it was shot.

Shot Go Averbakh on the site Kommunarka, in Butovo, right near built in 1935 Perervinsky waterworks, including IDA Auerbach was collecting materials for his brilliant monographs. By the way, during the construction of the Perervinsky waterworks killed hundreds, if not thousands, of prisoners Dmitrovka. And it’s not somewhere Poalris edge, and near by, practically in Moscow.

What can I say? Well, maybe that just as well as the IDA, the camps disappeared and her mother Sofia Mikhailovna, the sister of the first President of the Council of people’s Commissars of the RSFSR of Jacob.Sverdlov. However it happened a bit later – in 1951 (on the famous Kolyma, where, as you know, pine and taiga range, among the endless fir trees and wetlands). He was arrested and also shot the brother of IDA – a prominent Soviet literary critic Leopold Averbakh. About her husband, the incomparable Henry Berry, even, and say nothing – shot in 1938. Little Berry, Jr. (he was at the time of arrest of the parents was seven years old) sent to a children’s home by the NKVD. However the party and the government were unable to surround the same care as its parents, therefore the Berry, Jr. (he took his mother’s surname, Auerbach), survived and even graduated from the Institute. And then that ungrateful! – emigrated to Israel. Where he died happily in 2006.

And in the memory of descendants is remarkable in its susalnosti monograph IDA Auerbach “From crime to labor”, making the author well, could not suggest what will soon be her fate. Offer the readers of my magazine to enjoy the epic pictures from the book IDA Auerbach “From crime to labor.”

Moody signature. “The arrival of the deputies of the campers”. But in some sense in Stalin’s USSR, even the deputies of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR could easily be named “MPs-campers”. The gathering of drummers is also good. Poor women… That’s what yearn modern shovels-Stalinists.

“Jamboree nationals”. “National minorities-drummers”. Also good. And lorsung on top of the photos – five points “of Our stall competes with the stall… “. And what abundance in a stall somewhere. Let me remind you that at this time millions of Soviet peasants were dying of starvation fierce. And there is such abundance. Makes you wonder – what was better to die of starvation in the Stalinist country or to go to Stalin’s GULAG (in this case – Dmitrovka), in order to podarcis. By the way, these settings and a civilian were arranged sometimes.
