Title:

1924 - Death of Lenin: Stalin's grip on power

Rights-Managed, Editorial

Location and time:

Soviet Union, Moscow, 21-01-1924

Description:

January 21, 1924 - Vladimir Lenin dies and Joseph Stalin begins to purge his rivals to clear way for his leadership. Stalin had become the General Secretary of the Soviet Communist Party in 1922; following the death of Vladimir Lenin, he prevailed over Leon Trotsky in a power struggle during the 1920s and fully consolidated his authority with the Great Purge, a period of severe repression which reached its peak in 1937. He remained in power through World War II and until his death in 1953. Stalin molded the features that characterized the new Soviet regime; his policies, based on Marxist-Leninist ideology, are often considered to represent a political and economic system called Stalinism.

Sound Bite and conversation:



Buranow, Juri

(historian of the Russian October revolution) , speaking Russian:
-  "“Nadyesda Alliuyva was not just Lenin’s secretary, but Stalin’s wife also. This way Stalin had all his demands written up at the Party conference.” "

Antonov-Ovsejenko, Anton

(Son of one of Lenin’s fellow) , speaking Russian:
-  "Stalin replaced the focus of power from state institutions to institutions of the party. He made the Central Committee and the Political Office the servants of his dictatorship. Right after the death of Lenin he launched his revenge against the comrades of his predecessor. "

Antonov-Ovsejenko, Anton

(Son of one of Lenin’s fellow) , speaking Russian:
-  "Lenin had one foot in the grave and Stalin pushed him in there. This was his way to go. "

Buranow, Juri

(historian of the Russian October revolution) , speaking Russian:
-  "“Lenin was the father of Red Terror. Today we must say this openly: Lenin began these things.” "

Antonov-Ovsejenko, Anton

(Son of one of Lenin’s fellow) , speaking Russian:
-  "At last it was the foundation of a new power that was called the proletarian dictatorship. It needed an iron fist. And Stalin was not a featherweight like Bucharin or Kamene. They were weaklings. But him – like steel. "

Rykowa, Natalja

(daughter of a Lenin follower) , speaking Russian:
-  "Stalin won the trust of the party. He was highly respected. The old Lenin guard stayed alone. They did not play any role. "

Rykowa, Natalja

(daughter of a Lenin follower) , speaking Russian:
-  "“Everyone was very honest – except Stalin. He was without character and unpredictable. He acted like a great governor.” "

Antonov-Ovsejenko, Anton

(Son of one of Lenin’s fellow) , speaking Russian:
-  "In fact, what happened that night was totally different. Stalin was visiting a friend. He drank tea and told Georgian jokes. This was his real role in the Bolshevik revolution. "

Rukawischnikowa, Maria

(daughter of the doctor ) , speaking Russian:
-  "He suffered from spasms every day and it got worse and worse. He did not react to anything. "

Buranow, Juri

(historian of the Russian October revolution) , speaking Russian:
-  "The death of Lenin meant the rise of the dictator Stalin. Stalin could strengthen his leading position only after the death of Lenin and to become that as we know him: the tyrant of the ‘30s. "

Antonov-Ovsejenko, Anton

(Son of one of Lenin’s fellow) , speaking Russian:
-  "The end justifies the means – this applied to Lenin and Stalin as well. Stalin continued what Lenin had started. "
