- A son of Nikolai Bokan is pictured sitting in a field in June 1933. Bokan writes that this was the spot where Konstantin Bokan had died of starvation only a few hours earlier. In the few months prior to his death, he had been working on a collective farm where he was overworked and poorly fed. He had left the family home earlier in the spring of 1933. As his parents were struggling to provide for their large family during the famine, Konstantin was leaving the family home to take up work and residence at a collective farm. It is unclear whether he was asked to leave or whether he left of his own accord. Konstantin would have been around twenty-two years old at the time of his departure.
In his memoir, Nikolai Bokan notes that Konstantin had collapsed in the field and died in the presence of those walking and driving by on an adjacent road.
