  1. Yes, they had so much, everything but freedom. The picture of the kids drawing water from the well is quite apt. On one side, the happy Soviet children. On the other side, the worn-out, miserable Soviet adult.

  3. I’m one of these children and these were remarkable years of my childhood. When I see children today, they have miserable childhood in comparison. Yes, my parents worked hard – many did, but there was no knowledge of the questionable “better”. The “worn-out” lad in the picture is simply because he is worn-out, there are many times more these worn-out people nowadays, that I saw through my child’s eyes back then. Times of spirituality, creativeness. Times gone and missed.
