  1. 1947…yeah, wonder how many of these children’s parents would be going into the GULAG between then and Stalin’s death.

  2. @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.
