He was assigned to a major military hospital in Northern Ural as chief surgeon, a prestigious position. But his life changed drastically when he was suddenly arrested, convicted as an enemy of the Soviet Union, and sentenced to eight years in a gulag for crimes ha had not committed.

Despite his medical skills, he was unable to help the many inmates who died from forced labour, starvation, and cold."@en ;
