When Sabina Spielrein returned to Russia in 1923 she opened a kindergarten where children were to be raised as free persons as early in life as possible. Although Stalin had enrolled his own son Vasily under a false name, the institution was closed by the authorities using doctored-up sexual perversions on the children as an excuse.
Her husband Pavel Scheftel died in Stalin’s Great Terror in 1936, and her brother, a pioneering Soviet psychologist, also in 1937. Sabina Spielrein and her two daughters were murdered by Nazi troops in 1942:

The Biography of Empress Menen Asfaw: Anjahli Parnell: Amazon.com: Kindle Store
She had been an exemplary consort throughout her life with the last Ethiopian Emperor. She was supportive, standing back in public but a trusted advisor in private; she was generous, compassionate toward he people and dutiful in the spiritual aspects of her life and her vocation. It was, perhaps, merciful that she did not live to see her country and her beloved husband ruined by the communist revolution that was only a few years away.
