Mikhail Kripets: About father

Categories: Parents, Mikhail Kripets

Well, at first my father was a bachelor. They were three of Kryptsy, in 1917 they went together with Lenin. My father told me how it had happened. So during the day they used to be at the bog land, they worked at the huts. At nights they went and could crush down or kill somebody. They were fighting already and had good guns. But later when the war finished the younger Kripets left with Lenin in Moscow, and the other two brother came back home. One of them – Mikhail – was taken captive to the Poles, then he got out from the prison, he had four fingers affected by the electric current. They got married and stayed home. Well. In Polish times. They had their own household and worked there. The whole deal.
