    Fascinating historical documents. The Livadia ones show Livadia Palace, where the Yalta Conference was held in 1945. Are the dispossessed people in Ukraine in 1929 dispossessed because they are a kulak family? They don’t look remotely well off.

    Surely “peasants” at Livadia don’t look like the peasants
