inscription on the wall says something about soviet-czechoslovakia friendship. i guess the design is from czechoslovakia. note how ‘sad’ everything is, in this try to make something shiny and attractive. this expresses sovietness a lot.

remembered old Soviet joke:

Young French girl comes to Soviet Union, walks in Moscow, and falls in to the open hatch, gets injuries. When she comes back to her senses at the hospital, says:

— why wasn’t it marked with a red flag? you could at least mark it!

And hears the answer:

— when you were crossing the border, did you see the big red flag?

But for many years Fuchs had been, along with a number of other top mathematicians, trying to alleviate the effect of the discrimination against Jewish students by privately teaching young talented kids who were denied entry to MGU.

As part of those efforts, Fuchs was involved in what became known as “Jewish People’s University,” an unofficial evening school, where he and his colleagues gave courses of lectures to students. Some of those lectures had even been held at Kerosinka, although this was before my time.

The school had been organized by a courageous woman, Bella Muchnik Subbotovskaya, who was its heart and soul. Unfortunately, the KGB got on the case, alarmed that there were unauthorized gatherings of Jewish people. She was eventually called to the KGB and interrogated. Soon after that interview, she was killed by a truck under suspicious circumstances, which led many people to suspect that this was in fact a cold-blooded murder. Without her at the helm, the school collapsed.

from the book Love and Math: The Heart of Hidden Reality by Edward Frenkel

A man of Shahumyan who was 12 during those events told how the Russian soldiers shot the last people leaving the village in a Willis car. The child fell of the car with the others but did not die and understood that he should keep quiet. He lay quiet under the car and listened how the Russian soldiers shot the people, then climbed the cherry trees and ate cherries. Hranush Kharatyan says the man who was 12 then told her this picture remained in his memory.
