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:
