8-Year- Old Svetlana Issues Order To Her Father, Joseph Stalin In 1934
In 1934, Svetlana Stalin issues "Order No. 5" to her father, Joseph Stalin, in which she orders him "to take special measures" at "8:00 a.m." She marks the document "Top Secret" and draws various pictures, including "a house" and "a street." It's amazing that at the early age of eight she already knew the "language" of the Age of Terror - "order" (prikaz), "special measures", "Top Secret" and that she and her father played games with the same terms that haunted and terrorized everyone else in the Soviet Union. In this play-acting, she was the dictator and he was the subject.
