Exhibition on Lenin and Stalin to Run in Moscow

Today the State History Museum has opened an exhibition dedicated to Vladimir Lenin and Joseph Stalin.

      It is a collection of the former V. I. Lenin Central Museum.

      January, 2014 marked the 90th anniversary since the death of Vladimir Lenin. The founder of the Soviet state was commemorated with his museum, which was based on an exposition opened in the Revolution Museum in 1925. 10 years later it was decided to opening the Central Museum of V. I. Lenin near the Red Square. For over half a century the Museum cultivated commitment to Lenin and Stalin as historical figures personifying policy of the ruling Communist party. The very fact predetermined its destiny in Post-Soviet Russia: it was closed in November, 1993.

      The State History Museum keeps more than 100 000 monuments testifying the development of political cults of Lenin and Stalin, as well as the methods of transforming real historic figures into symbols of the socialist system. Over 1000 exhibits displayed at this exhibition give an idea of how the political myth of “the hero-worshipped leader” was created and supported.

      The exhibition runs till January 13, 2015.
