Moscow shelter for boys named after A. Kalinina / Pokrovskii Shelter named after A. Kalinina / Evacuation reception center
Address: 81 Bakuninskaya Street (Pokrovskaya Street until 1918), Moscow
The Pokrovskii Shelter was opened in 1921 on the site of the former house for the poor and orphanage in the Pokrovskaya Community of Sisters of Mercy on Bakuninskaya Street. It was opened by Asya Davydovna Kalinina, Kalinin's wife, one of the most active fighters against homelessness in the 1920s. In 1928, it was reorganized into the Danilovskii Shelter.
Children living in the shelter named after A. Kalinina were systematically tortured and abused, and they actively supported anti-Semitic sentiments, as mentioned in the book Russkaya shkola zarubezhom (Russian School Abroad, Articles 1927-1928).
