New people will live in the communes

In 1924, “Severnoy Komsomoletz” newspaper published an article on the communal housing. The idea of communes which became particularly popular among the youth in the early 1920s did not only include sharing an apartment but also sharing food, clothing, etc.: “The youth is likelier than anyone else able to destroy the traditions of the dying society. Proletarian collectivism can come true only when the labour and life of the youth will be communal. The best conductor of the collectivism will be the communal dormitories for the working youth.”
