Christian Message From Moscow (Russia:) "True Stories" Lidiya Zaparina Part 1, 2006-09-02

Part I of "True Stories" is the title of a book excerpts from which we offer you. This book is a description of events that happened to the author, Lidiya Zaparina and her acquaintance. There isn't a word of fiction here. We would like to hope that through this book you will learn to better understand the soul of an Orthodox person.
The author Lidiya Sergeevna Zaparina was a gentlewoman by birth. She was born in 1903, graduated from the gymnasium, yet couldn't continue her studies due to her noble ancestry. After the revolution of 1917 this people of noble origins were persecuted by the bolsheviks. And thus, Zaparina was obliged to find herself a job at a kindergarten. Later, when the repressions were slackened somewhat, Lidiya Zaparina was able to find employment as bibliographic expert at the State Book Chamber. She worked there right up until her pension came up.
