It explains that Moshko Blank, a native of Starokonstantinov, was the father of Alexander Dmitrievich Blank, whose daughter Mariia Alexandrovna Blank gave birth to Vladimir Ulianov, better known as Vladimir Lenin. It discusses how Blank arranged for the secular education of his children in Zhitomir and befriended court clerks who helped him put on paper his denunciations against his fellow Jews.
