‘Radically new view on Stalin-era USSR’: Unveiling the story behind unique color photo archive https://www.rt.com/viral/375519-historian-interview-photographs-russia/

This RT article is fascinating, recently Color Photos have been found in the thousands, including Stalin's funeral with vivid color.

This gives new insight into an era we usually see in black and white.

Thoughts: this is great.

What do you think?

Very nice, thread upvoted.

It's interesting that it doesn't seem as dark as portrayed in Western media, maybe just because the new colors. Cool if anything.

Tabby that is true, people were terrified of Stalin's prescense.

There's rumors that Stalin's aids deliberately refused to get doctors for stalin. Such as Lavrentiy Beria, and that Beria hated stalin, which isn't a surprise if you ask me.

Stalin was planning a purge, as he sent Molotovs wife to the gulag, a system in which Molotov helped build!
Stalin started persecuting Jews.

And people sensed that if stalin lived, they'd get replaced.

And I'm not saying stalin was poisoned but it isn't crazy to say that either.

I would've liked to see a Stalinist Cold War tbh.
