Research Title: "I will write as I wish…"
Herman Stepanov was born in 1913 into one of the richest families in the Orenburg region (today's Chelyabinsk region) in Russia. After the 1917 Revolution millions of Russians were deprived of political and civil rights (they came to be called "former people") and the life of the Stepanovs changed dramatically. How did these events influence the little boy Herman? Dariya looked at the diary entries that Herman made when he was between 9 and 12 years old.
