Dr. Nathan and Rebecca (Nate and Becky to us) Solter became my mother’s closest friends. In fact, the Lockshin family’s closest friends.
How did that come about?
The story was that my father, taking pity on a young, poor medical student and his Russian-born wife, periodically dropped off free bottles of milk, butter etc. for them while performing his Borden’s truck-driving route in the mid-1930s.
An unlikely story aimed to insinuate the Solters into my mother’s life. By the US Gestapo.
Here the ethnic question takes hold – a favorite practice of the US secret political police. Nate was American born, but of a Russian-Jewish family, and Becky, also Jewish, was an emigree from the Soviet Union, which she utterly detested. Apparently, her family in the USSR included fairly wealthy landowners whose land probably had been confiscated during the Soviet collectivization drive in the late 1920s. Becky, of course, was fluent in her native Russian language; as was my mother.
The Solters, with four children, were fairly constant companions for the Lockshin family. We went on outings together, including a joint vacation to Yosemite Park. We visited and ate at eachother’s houses. My mother regularly was on the phone with Becky for long personal conversations. After obtaining his M.D., Nate attended to our family’s medical needs, refusing to accept any money for his valuable services.
The two couples would often discuss, or better put, argue about politics, as Nate and Becky, while describing themselves as more-or-less liberal, were vehemently anti-communist.
When I, as a teenager, began to express left-wing sentiments, the “interest” of the Solters in me increased noticeably. More on this to come.
Leo and the Solters were not the only secret police stooges assigned to keep track of my mother. Among the others were Leon and Bertha Gutgeld (spelling?), a couple approximately my parents’ ages.
I remember yet some others, who were occasional intruders into Mom’s private thoughts. There is little reason to list their names or to detail the circumstances of their prying and ploys.
There undoubtedly were additional secret police-charged interlocutors attending to my mother; their
“inquisitiveness” may have occurred in my absence, or about whom I have forgotten or missed the significance. What we know for certain is that the US Gestapo strives to obtain its “intelligence” from many varied sources while disgusing its devices with a smorgasbord of pretexts and opportunities.
What I learned politically (mainly after the fact) from my mother’s life and experiences is that she was surrounded on many, many sides by the United States Gestapo — the vicious, murderous and all-intrusive US lie, spy, criminal, provocation, subversion and regime change, terror, drug-runnning, torture, war and mass murder apparatus. She suffered as a result.
Eventually understanding Mom’s fate played an important role in my being able to survive the even greater assaults that awaited me later in life.

Правительство США жестоко нарушало мои права человека при проведении кампании террора, которая заставила меня покинуть свою родину и получить политическое убежище в СССР. См. книгу «Безмолвный террор — История политических гонений на семью в США» — «Silent Terror: One family’s history of political persecution in the United States» — http://arnoldlockshin.wordpress.com
Правительство США еще нарушает мои права, в течении 14 лет отказывается от выплаты причитающейся мне пенсии по старости. Властители США воруют пенсию!!
ФСБ — Федеральная служба «безопасности» России — вслед за позорным, предавшим страну предшественником КГБ, мерзко выполняет приказы секретного, кровавого хозяина (boss) — американского ЦРУ (CIA). Среди таких «задач» — мне запретить выступать в СМИ и не пропускать большинства отправленных мне комментариев. А это далеко не всё…
