The Private Life of Stalin

There is a facinating film about Stalin posted on Youtube titled Monster: A Portrait of Stalin in Blood. The film was made by Russian historians and film makers. The first two posts in the sections dealing with the private life of Stalin make the case that Stalin had a relationship with the Czarist secret police, the Okrana, and that he was an agent provocateur. Revolutionaries he associated with were often arrested by the police. Later, Stalin cut his ties to the Okrana.

Part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5, part 6, and part 7.

See also the sections on Stalin's secret police.

Part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5, part 6.

In my previous post, I included clips from this film called
"Stalin and Mind Control." This section of the film discusses the regime's creation of the Stalin myth and its mobilization of intelligentsia, writers, and poets: part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5, and part 6.
