Protecting the Memory of Stalin


You know in these tumultuous times, we often forget that the victims aren't the people dying for no good reason, but the already dead people/monsters, whose museums could possibly get ruined by the bombing. New York Times reports today that the director of the Stalin museum, in Gori, Georgia, says he saved items from the museum by fleeing to Tbilisi during the Russian bombing of his country last month. Said museum director Robert Maglakelidze:

“Thank God, they didn’t bomb the museum, but there was no guarantee...We said, 'Let’s preserve these things for future generations.’ These personal things can’t be replaced.”

Maglakelidze said he loaded his car with some 50 items — including Stalin’s military greatcoat, pen, glasses, sword and pipe — for the trip from Gori, Stalin’s birthplace. In addition to portraits of Stalin, the museum, which opened in 1959, includes the house in which he was born, in 1879, on its grounds. The museum was not significantly damaged in the bombings and is expected to reopen on Monday.

Phew! That was a close call.

"...greatcoat, pen, glasses, sword and pipe..."

So basically enough to dress a Stalin mannequin.

Any mannequin of Stalin would be an afront to Stalin. Only God's hands could create the image of Stalin. If a Stalin mannequin exists, I'm sure Stalin killed the creator from beyond the grave.

I do accept as true with all of the concepts you've presented on your post. They're very convincing and
will definitely work. Still, the posts are very brief for beginners.
May you please lengthen them a little from subsequent time?

Thanks for the post.

Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the net the easiest thing to
be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while
people consider worries that they plainly do not know about.
You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing
without having side-effects , people can take a signal.
Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
