Remembered because the director from the Soviet Union’s Condition and Joint Condition Political Directorates (secret police), this Russian revolutionary is definitely infamous for arranging mass, execution-style killings through the many years of the Russian Civil Battle as well as the Red Terror. After going to the Wilno Gymnasium and briefly taking into consideration a career within the priesthood, he became a member of a Marxist business known as the Union of Employees. An “Iron Felix” statue focused on him once sat in Moscow’s Lubyanka Square. The child of Edmund-Rufin Dzierzynski and Helena Ignatievna, he was raised within the Russian Vilna Governate. His relationship to Sofia Sigizmudovna Muszkat led to a child called Jan Feliksovich Dzerzhinsky. In 1909, pursuing his 1908 arrest, Dzerzhinsky could get away to Italy by using writer and fellow innovative Maxim Gorky.
