Beef was correct saying that there are different perceptions of him here and over there.
That's interesting. In the U.S, students are taught the negative things Stalin accomplished. I had a University professor that was born in Lithuania (His father was forced into the Red army). At the age of 7 his family fled Russia as Germany was falling and he often spoke of his disdain of Stalin and the Russian people that followed him. I totally understand how people today can look up to him and crave a dictator in these economic times…. But if you asked the millions of people that were killed through genocide and ***** as the Red army came across Germany, you would get a different opinion.
