The American documentary was excellent, professional
on 5 June 2016
I bought this DVD in error, I thought it was the documentary shown on US History Channel. This is NOTHING similar. The American documentary was excellent, professional, objective, truthful. This Discovery Channel documentary was probably produced by Stalin's family, it was apologetic of Stalin, it was NOT truthful. Stalin murdered millions of people, he was a murderer, I don't care how "nice" he was to his granddaughter; Stalin's behavior to his family does not change the fact that Stalin was a murderer in the same league as Adolf Hitler. In this DVD, there was no mention of Kolyma, gulag in Siberia, Stalin-made famine in Ukraine, anti-Semitism, etc. It was an error on my part. If I didn't have to pay international postage, I would return this DVD.
