This chapter describes the account of Andrei Ivanovich Vorobyov after his parents were arrested in 1936 during the Great Purge. Andrei's parents, Ivan Ivanovich and Maria Samuilovna Kizelshtein, were members of Old Bolsheviks party. After their arrest, the Soviet government ordered the execution of Ivan Ivanovich and sentenced Kizelshtein ten years' imprisonment in Kolyma. Andrei and his siblings stayed with their relatives in Moscow. Because of poverty, Andrei worked as a full-time laborer to be able to pay for his education. Eventually, he was able to complete his education and became a physician. He served as Minister of Health of the Russian Federation under President Boris Yeltsin, and directed the Institute of Hematology of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow.
