Stalins Personal Belongings

Stalins Personal Belongings

There is a museum in Moscow where personal things of Joseph Stalin can be seen. Mikhail has visited this place and here are some photos he made.

Those are Stalin’s coats. If you recall Stalin from the old photos or the documentaries or  even from the movies, looks like he was the fan of military style in his cloths and here are some real life pieces worn by him that survived till our time.

Those are the: the summer coat of USSR marshall (top notch military rank in Soviet country), overcoat, a civil grey jacket,  a white summer USSR Marshall summer kitel (jacket) probably the one or similar to the one he was on Yalta and Tehran summit photos. Also Stalin’s personal earflaps hat and another Russian military hat. Even Stalin didn’t want to get cold with his head.

Here what’s next:

  1. Hitler wore a plain uniform and cap and his one Iron Cross. He didn’t go around awarding himself large numbers of medals as some dictators did.

  2. WW2 possibly could have been shortened, at least for the USSR, had Stalin not come to power, with his paranoid attitude. Had he not “purged”(eliminated) a lot of his top commanders, they could have been a benefit to him during WW2.
