The sun was hot, but there was no rain at all. Winter and spring crops suffered from drought. Vasiliy’s mother fell ill and she couldn’t nurse her child. People were hungry. They baked bread of goose-foot. A village teacher Elizaveta Petrovna Strogonova organized a special kitchen for children. There the children were given “ARA-porridge” (American Relief Administration). That was the only salvation.
