The Lop-ears owned the estate in Perkovichi until 1939. And even after that, one of the representatives of the genus, Anthony Visloukh, continued to remain here until March 40. The old professor did not want to leave his native land and his huge library. Unfortunately for him, this decision ended in failure.
