Yes, I'm also very sorry for them. I guess, Stalin was afraid that they could seize his power. And he also was supposed to explain people, why they work so hard and live so bad and still haven't reached communism - enemies of the people secretly hampered all the time.
I went to St.Petersburg in 1994. After I came home I really got into Russian history and could have named everyone. Now, lets see how I do. Top row L to R Kamenev, Zinoviev, Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin. Bottom row, not real sure. Dzerzhinsky maybe 2nd or 5th? Bucharin 2nd? Thanks for the quiz, can you give us the answer?
