What’s unusual about this loving care doled on peoples of the USSR:
The change of tune…
You see, for the 1st half of the regime – it wasn’t quite so caring. What took place before 1953,~made Nazis look like meek school bullies. The atmosphere was rather…..mass-murder-y.
Dozens of millions were artificially starved to death;
worked into the grave in labour camps;
sent out to be tortured & frozen in Siberia
slaughtered in the wars
lived in terror during Stalinist purges ( can’t be good for ur health to constantly wait in trepidation ~ if u’re next to be taken away in the night, & wiped from photos& proclaimed the Enemy of the People]
And then, voila!, here comes the Sun! the age of Benevolence!
≅So what happened in 1953 – to make this wondrous change occur?
