The article profiles Anton Makarenko, the father of the Soviet Union correctional education. Makarenko had been a teacher in tsarist Russia. After the Bolshevik Revolution he worked with homeless, those orphaned by wars, revolution and famine. A decade later, they were the victims of Stalin's regime of terror or collectivism and in Ukraine, of forced starvation. These children and youth were called besprizorniki, the homeless ones. All of Soviet local education was modeled on Makareno's ideas about correctional education for confined juveniles.
