Vladivostok. The land of life

A story of salvation of more than 800 Petrograd children who made a round-the-world trip from 1918 to 1921 is one of the most unique and also little-known facts of the 20th  century. Children left starving Petrograd for Ural «nutritional» colony but found themselves in the thick of the Civil War battles, cut off from their parents by the front lines. Staff of Red Cross managed to get children out by railway to Vladivostok, Russky Island, where colonists spent about a year.
