- The Interview -
Vasili Arkhipov (†72)
Chief of Staff of the 69th Submarine Brigade of the Northern Fleet
“One evening my mother was preparing dinner, as she waited for my father, when the doorbell rang. A soldier stood there with my father’s leather jacket - a warm leather military jacket that was lined with fur. The soldier said nothing, only suggesting that Vasili Arkhipov would not be coming home today. ‘He’s going to sea!’ was all he added.”

Wassili Archipow (†72)
Stabschef der 69. U-Boot-Brigade der Nordmeerflotte
„Meine Mutter war gerade dabei das Abendessen zuzubereiten und wartete auf meinen Vater, als es an der Türe klingelte. Dort stand ein Soldat mit der Lederjacke meines Vaters - einer warmen Leder-Militärjacke, die mit Pelz gefüttert war. Der Soldat sagte nichts und meinte nur, dass Wassili Archipow heute nicht nach Hause kommt. ‚Er geht aufs Meer!‘ war das Einzige, was er noch hinzufügte.“
