During her confirmation hearing, Omarova describe her childhood; she was raised by her grandmother after being orphaned when her parents were sent to Siberia amid Statin’s purges.
“I grew up without knowing half of my family. “My grandmother herself escaped death twice under the Stalin regime,” Omarova said. “This is what burned in my mind. That’s who I am. ”
