Hi! Thank you so much for sharing your story. I am so sorry you went through all of this.
I specialized in Soviet history during The Great Terror (1936-40, give or take).
How did the populace react to things like the sudden fall from grace of police leaders like Nikolai Yezhov or Genrikh Yagoda?
Did people around you seem to sincerely believe in the righteousness of what was occurring? That it was scary, but necessary for a better future?
What humor, if any, did people employ to face this sort of horror?
Thank you so much for any answers!

Kind of a reach, but what about people who prefer to be alone? I've found that isolation to a certain extent is far less stressful for me than face to face interaction, for example. Would someone like that experience the opposite? (I.E., inflammatory immune response to too much socialization?)

I definitely am! Thanks for responding!
