“You are totally freed from the need of any further appearances. The order has been received to grant you full freedom, and I regard it as a personal privilege to be the first one to inform you of your complete amnesty,” the person told the Rebbe. Melamed remembers that after the Rebbe had left the city to Leningrad, her father was interrogated, tortured and sentenced to 10 years of exile in Siberia.
