      Russia. Film & TV. The Top 12 Communist Movies Every Film Buff Should See. Ever since the rise of the Soviet Union and the ensuing Cold War, there has been a fascination with Communism across politics, society and the arts. Communism and Communist ideology have been a central feature of some of the past century’s most acclaimed and widely. GULAG was the acronym for the Main Administration of Corrective Labor Camps.. Gulag prisoners could work up to 14 hours per day. Typical Gulag labor was exhausting physical work. Toiling sometimes in the most extreme climates, prisoners might spend their days felling trees with handsaws and axes or digging at frozen ground with primitive pickaxes.

        Join us in uncovering the rich history of Russia, the world's largest nation. From the Rus' to the Tzars, to Joseph Stalin, Russia has had an impact on .   Between , Stalin instigated “The Great Purge” or “The Great Terror” to purge the Communist Party and to consolidate his own power. Millions of people were sent to forced labor, kidnapped or executed. He purged more than ¾ of his own generals, field commanders, and naval admirals in the Red Army. [4].

        Nicholas II was the last tsar of Russia under Romanov rule. His poor handling of Bloody Sunday and Russia’s role in World War I led to his abdication and execution. (–). Away from Russia he created his own propaganda machine.

Dzerzhinsky could simply explain the organisation’s work: for example the arrest and execution of people in St. Petersburg in was explained away as those executed were ‘enemies of the state’ or ‘enemies of the revolution’.

What Led to Stalin Coming to Power: The main answer to this question is the death of Lenin in the According to Caroline Kennedy-Pipe, author of "Russia and the World: ", "Immediately following the death of Stalin, however, the Soviet story is one of uncertainty and insecurity.

Pictures from the book “Drawings from the GULAG” by Danzig Baldaev, a retired Soviet prison guard. Of all his works those drawings are the most valuable, showing the nightmare of soviet.

The most well-known secret police organization of the Soviet state is the KGB.

It was first formed ina year after Stalin’s death. The KGB was intended to erase the stain of the NKVD, which the post-Stalin leaders of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union blamed for several excesses.

However, the KGB soon became known for committing plenty of atrocities all on its own. According to Robert Conquest in his book The Great Terror: Stalin's Purge of the Thirties, with respect to the trials of former leaders, some Western observers were unintentionally or intentionally ignorant of the fraudulent nature of the charges and evidence, notably Walter Duranty of The New York Times, a Russian speaker; the American.

The Cheka is sometimes referred to as the Bolshevik ‘secret police’, though most Russians were well aware of its existence and activities. The purges in the USSR started in the mid’s and continued throughout the late ’s. Joseph Stalin had shared power with Zinoviev and Kamenev in the time after the death of Lenin () and he had no intention of ever being put in that position again.

By the mid’s Stalin believed that the Bolshevik Party ‘Old Guard’ represented a threat to him and unless he did something.

Vladimir Lenin died on Januin Gorki, Russia. If the Bolshevik Revolution is—as some people have called it—the most significant political event of the 20th century, then Lenin must for good or ill be regarded as the century’s most significant political leader.
