In the same room of the dining table should be a corner set aside for the children: an Ugolok Diadi Lenina (Uncle’s Lenin Little Corner) where children can be instilled with love and respect for lenin. Here also should hang a picture of Lenin, and images of the old pre-Revolutionary byt of children suffering under capitalism. Objects, from the home republic of the child’s family, should be placed in the corner to instill love and knowledge of the republic – as well as a map of the entire USSR, images of the Soviet Union’s flora and fauna and national cultural figures.
