Pictures of Stalin - Photos and drawings of Joseph Stalin

Joseph Stalin (1878-1953) was a Communist dictator in Russia between 1922 and his death in 1953. He was one of the worst tyrants in human history, responsible for the death of tens of millions of his compatriots. We tried to gather some photographs and images of Stalin that are not as well known.

The first picture below is an official publication of Stalin towards the end of his life, depicting him in full power, wearing a single medal called Hero of the USSR.

The second picture is Stalin on a Russian poster from 1933. The dictator appears in a military coat, with one hand customarily tucked into the side of his coat.

The third picture shows Stalin on a Soviet one Rouble stamp, commemorating his 75th birthday (a year after his death). In the image he appears young and curiously Oriental (he was Georgian by origin, which would not have warranted slanted eyes of this degree.)

The fourth picture is a well-known photograph of Stalin sitting next to Winston Churchill and Franklin D. Roosevelt at the Yalta Conference in 1945. These are the victors of the Second World War, and they are about to decide the faith of the world.
