This is the room where the Senior Lieutenant, along with two other officers, interrogates Sasha’s dad. The interrogators take turns, but Sasha’s dad is denied sleep for weeks. Sasha’s dad signs the confession – everyone does – he admits to spying for foreign powers with the intention to overthrow the Soviet government. Next the Senior Lieutenant is promoted, but in time he too is denounced as an enemy of the people. No one is safe in Lubyanka.
