Early Life







After giving a speech to the workers of the "Hammer and Sickle" factory in Moscow, while Lenin was leaving the building he was called out to be a member of the crowd. In turning to respond he was shot three times by a revolver, one bullet passed through Lenin's coat, the other two struck him; one passing through his neck, puncturing part of his left lung and the other lodging in his left shoulder. His assassin was Left SR member, Fanya Kaplan.

Lenin was taken back to the Kremlin, fearing further attacks against his life, but was unable to get the correct medical attention required to save his life, he succumbed to his wounds two days later.
