This is a compilation of very interesting and informative children's pictures taken in 1947!
Human side of comrade Stalin ! ! ! ! !
Kidding, huh? He behaved nastily even to the members of his own family.
That is the funniest thing I have seen all year!congrats!Stalin easily caused the deaths of several hundred thousand children during his “five year plans back in 30’s.
1947…yeah, wonder how many of these children’s parents would be going into the GULAG between then and Stalin’s death.
that was *exactly* the same I was thinking when I saw the first few pictures
You gotta admit: the education was far advanced in the U.S.S.R.
How advanced can an education be of “1984” isn’t permitted in the library?
How advanced can an society be when under the provisions of the USA PATRIOT Act, Big Brother will be watching you every time you use a public library or buy a book?
Stalin, Mikoyan, Molotov.. anybody know who is the old guy behind Molotov?
Comrade Beria ! ! ! ! ! ! !
Are you sure? Beria always had a pince-nez. I don’t see one on this guy. And after the War he usually was dressed in a business suit (like Molotov). Good try, but I’m still not sure.
@Otis: Stalin, a paranoid tyrant, killed millions, but he commanded his people to avoid being totally annihilated by Hitler’s Nazis… A lot of brilliant shines and sinister shadows, mixed. Russian history is not black and white. Or easy. Hope the future is brighter than that.
@Hans: Stalin was struck dumfounded by the Nazi attack. His inflexible tactics cost millions of Soviet lives at the start of the war. Stalin’s paranoia before the war cost him some of his best officers. It is the Soviet/Russian PEOPLE who stood firm, turned the tide, and did so much to help defeat the Nazis. Have studied a good deal of Russian history, from the time of Rurik. History is, indeed, neither black or white, nor easy, but Stalin was easily as much a scourge as a savior to Russia.
All these children are pensioners now…
My god …….! poor child
