A dollop of history

We have stumbled on this poster accidentally in a shop:




















And the text of the poster says (more or less, mind you):

The left fraction

Announces with sorrow, love and great respect
To the workers and to the whole nation of Israel
About the death of
J.V. Stalin
The leader of the Great October Socialist Revolution,
Architect of communism in Soviet Union,
Commander of victory over the fascism and liberator of the oppressed nations,
Genius of socialist science founded by Marx-Engels-Lenin,
Guide of the international proletariat.

By strengthening the struggle for independence,
peace and socialism and improving
our ties with Soviet Union
we'll hallow the memory of great Stalin.

Good point. Fortunately, the guy is dead.
Nothing more to talk about, move on, folks.
