Georgia museum honoring Stalin being remodeled to exhibit his atrocities

Tbilisi , Tue, 10 Apr 2012 ANI

Tbilisi, April 10 (ANI): A museum in Georgia that has honoured former Soviet dictator Josef Stalin since 1937 is now being modified to display the atrocities committed by him during his rule.

Culture Minister Nika Rurua said that Georgia, that became independent in 1999, could no longer host a museum "glorifying the Soviet dictator".

The museum exhibits Stalin's house and about 47,000 different exhibits, including the dictator's personal belongings and death masks, Fox News reports.

It has remained open despite the de-Stalinization campaign and denunciation of his personality cult that was declared by Stalin's successor Nikita Khrushchev in 1956.

Stalin, who died in 1953, remains a divisive issue in the former Soviet Union.

He is still revered by many who say he led the Soviet Union to victory in World War II and turned a struggling nation into a superpower. (ANI)
