Yuri Gagarin

When he was a young boy, Yuri Gagarin’s (first man in space) village was occupied by Nazis. They forced his family to work while living in a 3x3 meter mud hut for 21 months. He saw his little brother being hanged (but saved by his parents) and his two older siblings deported for slave labor (who escaped).
