Summary of Interview 090104A with Sühbaatar
Sühbaatar was born in 1942 in Bayangol sum of Selenge aimag. Her family moved to Zuunharaa (a stop on the railway) so she could go to school when she was 8 years old. She mentioned that learning materials were scarce, facilities were poor, and the material base for training was insufficient. Children who learned well were enrolled as Pioneers early, and all pupils became Pioneers starting in the 4th grade. And they were enrolled as “members of the Revolutionary Youth League” after graduating to higher grades. When she was a schoolgirl, every pupil collected 5 tögrögs as a donation for “Pioneer’s House” that was building in Ulaanbaatar city regardless rural or urban.
Her father was a railway worker, therefore her family moved again to Zamiin-Uud following her father’s work after she finished the seventh grade. Eventually, she worked for the railway and married someone from there, then settled down in Ulaanbaatar in 1963. Arriving in the capital city, she made a living as a worker for the mental hospital [the Mongolian suggests something closer to 'insane asylum'] at that time (currently National Centre for Mental Disorder) and was admitted to nursing school after working for over a year. Then she returned to her hospital and worked for about 30 years and retired.
