Personal History for Tony Kandiew

Just The Facts

In a few pages, what is summary of your life story?

I, Anatoly I. Kandiew was born in Kiyiv (Kiev is the russified name) on November 1,1937. My father was Ivan Kornilovich Korniew, a leading chemist in the Ukraine and the Soviet Union. He founded the Ukrainian Chemical Society in 1933. He had 103 patents to his name and was part of the Soviet fact finding committee to investigate the German development of tanks, -airplanes and other weapons of war in "Rapallo-land" and in Germany proper.

[Definition of what I call: Rapallo-land. When World War 1 ended, Germany, Russia and the Ottoman Empire were mercilessly partitioned by the victors. Germany lost the Saar and many other territories plus all her colonies. Her Pacific colonies ended up with Japan- where thousands of American soldiers lost their lives in WWII. Russia, while an ally of the allies was punished for surrendering prematurely to the Germans. Russia lost some large provinces such as Poland, Finland and others, mainly taken form the Ukraine. In addition Germany was forbidden to develop modern weapons, in particular tanks and airplanes. So, Germany needed a friend who would help them. Since Germany felt they funded the revolution in Russia, they called on the Soviet Union to help them. Delegates from both countries met in Rapallo, Italy in 1922. There the Germans pleaded their case. "Revenge" was on their mind and all they needed was an area large enough to develop their new weapons. There they would develop the prototypes and test them. Since this could not be done in Germany, who was better suited for this mission than the Soviet Union with her vast landmass. In return Germany promised to share with the Soviet Union their new technology. Within a year or so the details were agreed upon and Heinz Guderian became the architect of German tank development and coordinated warfare called: BLITZKRIEG (the key was a short wave radio). Guderian also wrote a book- 'Achtung Panzer'. But, hardly anyone paid any attention to it until it was too late.]

The program began in earnest around 1926. The area designated was near Kazan. It was fenced off and guarded by Germans in Soviet uniforms. All German casualties were crated and shipped back to Germany labeled: INSTRUMENTS.

Naturally, a project of this type needed constant monitoring. So, both Germany and the Soviet Union had inspection teams who monitored each other constantly.

Once my father became a prominent chemist he was included in that team. He loved it because each year he went on a fact-finding mission, he got a "ration of western clothing" 2 suits, 1 overcoat, 2 pairs of shoes and so on. the mail reason he included was that Stalin wanted to know if the Germans were developing gas or chemical weapons. That is everybody played "liars poker."

In 1935, Ivan inhaled some poisonous gas at the plant he was in charged of near Stalino. Within a few weeks he lost his privileges: housing and was deleted from the International Who's Who.

In 1941, when the Germans invaded we were in Kiyiv. The commissar of the Soviet forces defending Kiyiv was Nikita Khrushchev. Since Kiyiv could not be evacuated, Khrushchev issued an order to kill some prominent citizens of Kiyiv. Ivan was on that list. The execution squad ambushed him in our wheat-field and mowed him down.

From then on my mother Emilia had only one desire, to get to America as fast as possible. In 1943, after the Battle of Kursk, Emilia got a Marschbefehl (marching order) to go to Berlin. En route she married George Kandiew. My older Sister (see EMMAANDIJEVSKA.DE) and I were adopted.

From 1943 to 1949 we lived in Berlin. When Emilia was discovered by the Soviets she went to the commandant of the British Sector who gave her asylum and a pass to West Germany. (Emilia was a certified agronomist, a medical doctor form Odessa University and a Hydro-Biologist from Kiyiv University. In 1945 my younger sister Kathy was born.

From 1949 to 1951, we lived in Cornberg, Fulda and Mittenwald where Emilia and George were "debriefed" by American intelligence.

From 1951 to 1957, we lived in Munich, where I attended Gisela Ober-Realschule (sort of High School). In 1957, while in Munich, George was nearly caught by the KGB. This is when Emilia put her foot down and told us: "WE ARE GOING TO AMERICA." We arrived in Manhattan in 1957. I went to Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, PA.
