Stalin defends the role he played during the Great Purge

Somedays the library space really works for large group activities.  If there is a class in here that I am not directly involved with, I let them do their thing and do my own library related work.  Today, I couldn't help but listen to Mr. Uhelski's history class put Stalin on trial.  The prosecution and defense had their arguments all ready to go.  Stalin was in the hot seat several times, along with witnesses like a Polish poet who survived her time in the Gulag.  The entire group was most impressive, with Stalin even showing up in military uniform and signature mustache.  They declared Stalin guilty on 3 of 4 charges.  Well done, scholars :)
