What happened in '46, red terror?
Tom Wilson: The KGB took over from the Gestapo - and the Russians began to purge independence fighters and intellectuals - many were sent to Siberia, others murdered in this building.

All of them died over a very short period of time.
Tom Wilson: Indeed - the initial purge after the Russian takeover.

Tom Wilson: A lot of killing went on in the USSR long after then end of WWII, Peter. Sad to say.
