The Slovo House became the personification of the bloody Soviet system, and the residents of the house were later called the generation of the "shot revival."
In 1928, a house for cultural figures of the Ukrainian SSR was built in Kharkiv. Mykola Khvylovy, Ostap Vyshnya, Mykhailo Semenko, Anatol Petrytsky, Antin Dyky and others are moving under one roof. A building with multi-room apartments, a laundry, a dining room, a kindergarten and even a solarium should become an oasis for artists, but the opposite will happen. Specially gathered intellectuals in one place are repressed and destroyed.
