The Red General - Stalin

Statues Dismantled in Azerbaijan
Stalin's statues are no longer standing today, but photos from Azerbaijan's National Archives show that they were quite prevalent during his life time (until 1953). When Khrushchev came to power, he denounced the "Personality Cult of Stalin" and the statues were dismantled in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Note the similiar styles of statues 1, 2 and 6.
