Children were evacuated from Leningrad during the Nazi blockade of the city. The blockade began in June, 1941 and ended by April, 1943. According to a Russian language article, evacuation to the Molotov area (presently, the Perm region), Chernushka began during Summer, 1941. The children arrived by train, after first being transported by ship; they were often ill on arrival. They were placed in villages and settlements within the locale. According to the information from the site,, 78 children's orphanages and 50 kindergartens accepted about 10,000 young children. A map showing the location within the Perm area of the boarding schools is available on the website. (It was first published in the "Star", a regional newspaper, in 1995).
