70th Anniversary of Stalin's Death († March 5, 1953)

On March 5, 1953, Moscow Radio reported that the Chairman of the Council of Ministers of the Soviet Union and General Secretary of the CC of the CPSU, Josef Vissarionovich Stalin, had died after a serious illness. Four days earlier, he had suffered a massive stroke after one of his nightly drinking bouts with his entourage at his dacha in Kuntsevo near Moscow. His guards find him lying helplessly on the floor many hours later; they did not dare to venture into the despot's chambers earlier as they were afraid to do so without being asked first. The party leadership team quickly arrived and argued for quite a while over how to deal with the situation. When finally summoned the doctors made a diagnosis without any real treatment. When it became clear that the "Woschd" (leader) would not survive his ordeal, the Politburo began to wrangle over the redistribution of power.

The news of Stalin's death caused a real shock all over the Soviet Union - but also in many other socialist countries. Millions of people flocked to Moscow from all parts of the country to attend the four-day mourning ceremonies. At least one hundred people were killed in the crush during these four days, a fact that became public only much later. On March 9, the "Father of the Nations" was buried in the Red Square in a pompous ceremony with numerous international guests in attendance.

In his famous secret speech at the XXth Party Congress, then First Secretary of the CPSU Nikita Khrushchev openly addressed Stalin's crimes for the first time. Later he also had his body removed from its resting place next to Lenin in the mausoleum. However, the memory of the USSR’s heroic victory in World War II is inextricably tied to Stalin, so that he is gradually rehabilitated. Especially with the return to the nation's once-perceived invincibility, and in particular since the fall of the Soviet Union and most recently since the start of the war against Ukraine, Stalin has visibly gained new popularity in recent years.
