Fact of the Day: Stalin's Wife

Joseph Stalin's second marriage was not a totally happy one. His wife Nadezhda Alliluyeva had a public dispute with him and then the next day she was found deceased. While it appeared to be a suicide, many think Stalin murdered her. Regardless of what really happened, Stalin told the world (and his own children) that she died of appendicitis.

Who could ever believe anything Stalin said. He killed more of his own people than Hitler.
