Death was stronger

Glee swept the multimillion population of the camps. Columns of prisoners in the deep darkness went to work. The roar of the ocean drowned out the barking of service dogs. And suddenly, as if the light of the aurora flickered in rows: Stalin died! Tens of thousands of legally confessed in a whisper passed to each other: “I died ... I died ...” and this whisper of thousands and thousands buzzed like the wind. (with)

Yes, of course, there was confusion. Of course, exalted hysterical personalities sobbed out loud. But most timidly hoped for a change for the better.
A significant part of the Soviet people in the vast Siberian expanses, unconcealed were happy death of a tyrant.

Eyewitnesses recall:

One day a major passed by the courtyard in which I was walking.
- What, Mist walk?
- I walk, a citizen of the head. He looks at me, smiling slyly:
- Us tail thrown back! "Us" - so called Stalin in Kolyma. We also called him "beast", "Gutalinsky",
Khabibullin, although everyone knew that he was not a Tatar. Among criminals, there was rarely a conversation about him, and I don’t remember a time when someone would talk sympathetically about Stalin. Usually the definition of “bitch” was added to his nickname.Bitch Gutalinschik ... Bitch Khabibullin ... More often they talked about him political. I remembered the story of Mamedov, as at some meeting in the Kremlin, when it came to the lack of manpower — either at a big construction site, or somewhere in the region, ”Stalin told the audience: you yourself! ”There was a persistent dislike for this name among the Kolyms. But so that suddenly ... I look incredulously at the major.
- Are you serious, citizen chief? - I ask.
- Is such things joking? - answered the major. I turn from him and run to prison. The wardens do not understand why I am so few
walked And I scream all the top iron doors:
- Stalin is dead! Stalin is dead!
I still do not understand how this can turn out for the country, for all of us, but some
the disturbing feeling of the approaching novelty, the expected changes, the pleasing events overwhelms and demands an exit, at least in the wild cries:

- Stalin is dead! Khabibullin is dead!
Two hours later, in prison appears accompanied by Machabeli guards, now
Head of the mine He is thoughtful, restrained, reticent. Enters the camera:
- No questions asked! - Says, head down.- Today in the capital of our country
died ... dear ... Joseph Stalin! “And wipes away the protruding tears.”
He stands with a mournful face. With all his appearance, he urges us to share the grief of the world proletariat.
Several people shouted happily:
- So he bitch, and it is necessary!
Machabeli throws up piercing eyes:
- It already smells politics! “And along with the warders is in a hurry to leave the prisoners.”
After many years, the book about the joint venture will fall into my hands. The Queen, and it will be very unpleasant for me to read, as if he had all his life believed in Stalin, and only the 20th Congress opened his eyes. I do not believe it at all. Korolev sat in the camp Maldyak, created in 1937, where in a small valley there were six camp zones of two thousand prisoners in each. He was not a fool. From the camp old-timers convicted in the 30s, I repeatedly heard what I myself observed later, in the late 40s and early 50s: anyone who in the camp began to talk about Stalin well, mocked and suspicious. They looked at him as if he was an idiot or they could be given a shoe in the face.
Party members-revolutionaries still argued about Lenin, about the fate of Bolshevism in Russia, but in no camp environment I met a man who would be convinced of the absolute Stalinist innocence or his complete ignorancewhat is happening in the country. Therefore, it is completely incomprehensible when they write that Korolev always trusted Stalin. How was it possible to believe the authorities, who would never break your life, besides being in Kolyma, surrounded by continuous camps, where the death of many thousands of people was the same everyday picture as the faded leaves torn by the autumn wind from the branches. Anyone who claims that under those circumstances he believed in Stalin was either cunning or an idiot.

Now, just what happens, they say: “We will complain to Comrade Stalin,” and then there will be no one. Take this example. Why are there no Jews on collective farms, and all of them are at high posts? Had Lenin, they would not exist, he would have exiled them all to Palestine.
Had Lenin, then there would be no war. And yet there would be no Jews if Lenin were alive, otherwise they strangle us. ”

Typistthe headquarters of the motorized rifle division: “Somehow scary. After his death, who will be in his place? Who knows what people think? Someone will rise to his post, and then he will be an enemy of the people. And what if there is a war? Now is the most convenient moment for this, especially since winter is ending, and war always begins in summer ”[...]

Colonelretired, Jew, member of the CPSU: “Judging by the tone of the message, this is the end. Now the Central Committee of the CPSU will begin discord and mutual struggle for power, the secretary of the Central Committee of the CPSU ... (in the text of the document a pass. - Comp.) Will now seek to place people close to him in high-ranking posts in order to secure one-man leadership. We will observe the same situation that occurred in the period of the struggle with the opposition. In general, our position and authority will significantly deteriorate on foreign policy issues. Take the countries of people's democracy, they now, naturally, will strive for greater independence and liberation from our daily care. This position is particularly relevant to China, which still felt most independent, and now it’s hard to say how our relations can turn, especially as the US takes all measures to drive a wedge into our relations with China. ”

(from the reports of the MGB about the mood in the army in the spring of 1953) ”.

“And suddenly, on March 5, Stalin died. This death invaded a gigantic system of mechanized enthusiasm, appointed at the direction of the district committee of popular anger and popular love. Stalin died out of plan, without instructions from policy makers. Stalin died without the personal instructions of Comrade Stalin himself. Glee swept the multimillion population of the camps. Columns of prisoners in the deep darkness went to work. The roar of the ocean drowned out the barking of service dogs.And suddenly, as if the light of the aurora flickered in rows: Stalin died! Tens of thousands of legally confessed in a whisper passed to each other: “I died ... I died ...” and this whisper of thousands and thousands buzzed like the wind. A black night stood over the polar land.
