Lunacharsky was born in Poltava in 1875. His stepfather was the illegitimate son of a nobleman Charnalusky, who moved few syllables in the surname of a child. Who could imagine that this surname will be famous throughout Europe? While studying at the Kiev school, he was interested in Marxism. In Kiev he joined a secret Marxist organization and led an active campaign among the workers with fellow Berdyaev, who was nobleman-revolutionary. Surprisingly, but during this time he didn’t fall into the hands of stern authority.
