Breaking Stalin's Nose Chapter 29 Summary

  • He's finally made it! Sasha is awaiting his moment to enter the main hall of the school, proudly carrying the banner of the Young Soviet Pioneers.
  • Sasha imagines what it was supposed to be like: his father tying the scarf around his neck and speaking the words that would make him a Pioneer.
  • But it's not going to be like that at all, he realizes, so he puts down the banner and leaves the school. He doesn't want to be a Pioneer anymore.
