History 19/03/20 Why Stalin’s son, Vasily Dzhugashvili was buried in Kazan

the Son of Stalin died in Kazan, where he was buried. But in 2024, his remains were removed and reburied at the cemetery Troekurov in Moscow separately from the mother.

the Life of Vasily Stalin in Kazan

just a couple of weeks after his father’s death, Vasily was in prison. He was arrested in April 1953 on charges of anti-Soviet propaganda and sentenced to 8 years. Historian Nikolai Nepomnyashchy, in his book “100 great mysteries of our time” wrote that the sin of Stalin Jr. was sent to Kazan, where because of the ban are not foreign tourists. In March of 1961, Basil was already there and settled in a small apartment. A little later it was settled Nusberg Maria with their children.

Maria Nunberg (before marriage Severgina) worked as a nurse. With Stalin Junior, she met almost immediately after his move to Kazan when he was in the hospital. Despite children from a previous marriage, Vasily officially married. According to Yevgeny Dzhugashvili, author of “My grandfather Joseph Stalin”, he even adopted her children. They were also recorded by the name of Dzhugashvili, which Vladimir received along with the passport in April 1961.

Arskoe cemetery

a Newly formed family did not last long. In March 1962, Vasily Stalin died. Alexander Ushakov, in his book “Burnt wine,” wrote that the official version of Stalin’s younger died from alcohol poisoning. He was buried in the Arsk cemetery in Kazan. According to Svetlana Alliluyeva, his funeral was attended by almost half of the city. But the author of the book “Against the “day” and “good” Sergei Kramarenko wrote that to say goodbye to Basil came, only his children and a couple of onlookers.

whatever it was, but for the relatives of embellishment of the events of a matter is excusable. But the burial of Basil at the local cemeterysche, not in Moscow, they were unhappy. Vladimir Allweb repeatedly appealed to Khrushchev requesting the reburial of Stalin Junior. But he never managed to achieve.

the Reburial of Stalin

Only at the beginning of 2000-ies of relatives Basil received the permission for the reburial. The author of the book “Stalin’s Death” Leonid Mlechin wrote that this happened due to the request of Sergei Ivanov (defense Minister at the time). In November 2002, the remains of Vasily Stalin were transported to Moscow. But he was buried not with his mother at the Novodevichy cemetery, along with his ex-wife at the cemetery Troekurov.

Oleg Smirnov, the author of the book “defenders of the Russian sky. From Nesterov before Gagarin”, wrote that the reburial was carried out in secrecy early in the morning. The reason for this lies in the fear of daughter Tatyana. She was afraid that the remains of her adoptive father can take away. But it looks more than strange, after all, their family has lived for about a year and all this time Stalin was still drinking. Elder son Basil Alexander Burdonsky believes that Tatiana has done all of this for the sake of joining the family of Stalin. He said that “This kind of piracy peculiar to our time.”
