COMMENTARY

In the affairs of some of the people under repression one encounters different spelling variants of their surnames, first names, and patronymics. They are presented in the book as follows:

-- In the basic alphabetical listing the surname is shown as the person arrested gave it on his questionnaire, as given in his personal specifications, or as in the KGB listing.

-- In the first supplement other spelling variants of this person's surname or his alias are cited and are given the same reference number (Nr p/p) as in the basic alphabetical listing.

-- In the second supplement these same surname variants are shown, but here are given in alphabetical order, and as much as possible keeping in order the numbering of the basic listing.

Note by translator: In Cyrillic the above is alphabetically correct.

All spelling variants of first names and patronymics will be given in subsequent alphabetical volumes of "Odessa Martyrology" together with complete references about the people under repression. In the first volume the first name and patronymic are shown as given by the arrested person in his questionnaire, in his personal specifications, in that set during the interrogation protocol, or in the KGB listing. A variant is shown only in a case where the first name and patronymic is completely different from what is shown in the basic case.

In the column "Sentence, Verdict, Report" data are listed about measures taken carrying out the judicial verdict or sentence by non-judicial organs (committee of three, special deliberations, and others); in the absence of a verdict (sentence) a different report is given -- about release, staging, death, and others.

Many of the people under repression were arrested twice, some three times, and even four times. These data will be presented in subsequent alphabetical volumes, shown here will be only one, the maximum sentence a person received.

CONVENTIONAL ABBREVIATIONS
GN -- Public Supervision or Surveillance
ITL -- Correctional Labor Camp
LPP -- Deprivation of the right to live in 12 populated locations of the USSR, including Moscow and Leningrad
PL -- Forced Treatment in a psychiatric hospital
exile -- being sent out of the USSR
sled. -- consequence or investigation
usl. -- conditionally or probation (a repressive sentence was passed conditionally, the person charged was released from custody)

Note by translator: In the last two abbreviations the words translate to two different English words and without context there is no way of saying which is meant. For the last one the same word was used in the parenthetical explanation and there seems to translate one way while the situation being described seems to mean the other.
