Stalin's Treatment of Religious Groups and Minorities
Transcript of Stalin's Treatment of Religious Groups and Minorities
Inadequate food and clothing.
High rates of death and disease. According to Stalin, these purges were simply the "removal of unwanted or potentially threatening elements from the country."
Millions of innocent people killed.
Used to show Stalin's ultimate dominance. This group was especially targeted by Stalin.
By 1930, about eighty percent of the village churches in Russia were gone.
Only 5 of 4,900 churches in the Ukraine survived Stalin's rule. Kulaks were rich peasants.
Soviets had to turn in a certain number of Kulaks.
If villages could not produce their "quota" of Kulaks then they would turn in common criminals and gypsies to be arrested. Tried to eliminate Jewish culture as a distinct culture.
Discouraged Jewish nationalism. Cossacks lived in the south of Russia and supported the fallen tsar.
They were seen as counterrevolutionary.
Stalin set up a decossackization policy where they were killed and harassed.
Many fought with the Nazis during WWII. Stalin took out minorities and religion because they were potential competition.
At least 20 million people were killed during this time named The Great Terror.
