Biography

Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin was a Soviet Union's dictator from 1924 to 1953. The Russian name "Stalin" that he began using in 1913, means "steel" or "steel man".

Stalin's rule was characterized by a strong personality cult, extreme concentration of power, and little concern for the harder impact of his policies. Stalin tried to suppress any opposition through terror and arbitrary bureaucratic machinery. Estimates of the number of people who died as a result of measures implemented under Stalin's leadership is highly variable, but an average estimate of 20 million sounds of a 23-year period. Millions of people were sent to Gulag concentration camps.

Nikita Khrushchev, who came to power after Stalin, condemned the repression of both personal cult in 1956 and launched an process to close down all the camps.
