@saltycola THANK YOU for this incredible translation and the links! I am overwhelmed with gratitude. Again, thank you!
A couple of comments:
>…blah blah yada yada this is where I got bored translating it; anyway then the Soviets came in 1939,

>There was also a Komsomol organization in the village, but it only had two members.
