Victims of Political Terror - Stalin
« on: December 12, 2014, 04:21:23 AM »
An incredibly grim list:

Makes you wonder how many on this enormous list are relatives that could be traced to those currently in power in The Kremlin that seek to rehabilitate (partially at least) Stalin.

An organisation called Последний адрес (Last Address) has started putting up plaques around Moscow to commemorate some of the victims.

Maxim Kats from Echo Moskvy covered the erection of plaques at Dolgorukovskaya Ulitsa 5, where at least 65 people were disappeared, on his Livejournal page.

There's an article about it in English in The Moscow Times.

The patronymics on the memorial which is photographed, Abramovich, and the profession (pediatrician) puts it in context (the notorious"Doctor's plot ")  :(

For those that aren't aware of it, this is what Volshe is referring to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doctors'_plot

I don't think Vladimir Nikolaev can have been involved in that since he was shot in 1938.

You can see lists of the disappeared divided by addresses here.

That is why I always wonder why American leftists hate USA and praise Stalin. They find fault in the American way of life but none in Stalin. The worst that American politicians did was bug the Watergate. Stalin murdered millions of peasants. Compare it with the worse an American politician had done. ;D
There are only three professional spies in the world: Vladimir Putin, Vladimir Putin, and Vladimir Putin.
