Trying to feed her 4 hungry children during the massive 1932-33 famine, she allegedly stole 3 pounds of rye from her former field—confiscated by the state as part of collectivization. Sentenced to ten years in the Gulag. When her sentence ended in '43, it was extended till '45. After release, she was required to live near her Gulag camp north of the Arctic Circle, and she was not able to return home until 1956, after the death of Stalin. She never found her children.
