After the war, Nikolai helped set up a military base and became the base chief. He was invited to live with a family who had known his mother. It was there that he learned to read and count. Sergei got along well with everyone in the family except with their son Andrei, whom he believed to be mentally handicapped.

It was brutal. I understand why he became so hard. Reading the stories of his childhood in the soviet orphanage system wrenched my heart out. Children building their own societies, having systems of weeding out informers, hazing rituals, it sounded like The Lord of the Flies.
They would build towers of chairs reaching tens of feet in the air and force children to climb up them then make the tower collapse to test if a newcomer was a snitch or not. Absolutely horrible. His own story of how he would go in and break up religious meetings with his fists and his rubber covered steel club were gut wrenching too.
But the thing that got me was what broke his brainwashing by the communist party, and brainwashing it was. They never explained how. How did such small groups manage to do all of these terrible things? The United States has systemic sexual injustice. The United States government is trying to stamp out white people. These things are too general and too amorphous to be true. Are there cases of individual racism? Are there cases of sexual injustice?
Are there cases of white people not receiving proper representation? But none of these things are a system.
They are cases of individuals practicing evil things and not being called on it. Whenever you are given a one-size-fits-all statement as an explanation. When you are not taught to think critically you only have the capacity for over-generalizations and sweeping assumptions. The thing that truly struck me was the strength of some of the believers. The famous one is Natasha. The girl who came back to church meetings three times even after having been beaten to the point of hemorrhaging blood and flesh the second time.
No the one convicted me was the woman who prayed for Kourdakov as he lifted his club to beat her, asking God to forgive him for what he did and guide him to true faith.
I cannot fathom the faith of that woman. I have a hard enough time praying for politicians that I disagree with, to ask forgiveness from God for someone who has just slaughtered some of my closest friends and is preparing to beat me? Threatened with deportment back to Russia, Sergei finally was given citizenship in Canada where he wrote this book so the truth of what was happening in Russia would be known by the world.
His involvement at the higher levels of the government and military meant he had many secrets that they wanted protected at all cost.
As a result, at the very young age of 22, Sergei was murdered on the ski slopes of California. He had not been free from Russia very long. And their threats on his life could not silence him. He had seen other Christians give their lives for the truth and he knew he could do no less. Mission accomplished, Sergei.

Zulkibei Forgive Me, Natasha : Sergei Kourdakov : The problem is that instead of talking about Big Irene specifically the portion that had been read to himhe began to discuss the caretakers in general. The school director eventually offered him the opportunity to lecture younger classes about on various subjects, generally subjects having to do with communism. Many of them had their faces in their food and one was lying on the food serving tray. The witness was told that according to The Persecutorhis main job had been to fight with believers. Forgive me, Natasha and Sergei!
