Stalin's daughter, and Soviet defector, Lana Peters has died
« on: November 29, 2011, 03:39:57 PM »
Lana Peters, daughter of Soviet dictator Josef Stalin, and eventual defector from the USSR, has died. She was 85.

From the article:
Quote
Peters went to India in 1966 to spread Singh's ashes, but instead of returning to the Soviet Union she walked into the US embassy to seek political asylum.

She burned her passport, denouncing communism and her father, whom she called "a moral and spiritual monster".

Memory eternal.
