Joseph Stalin

General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union

Monday Apr 03, 1922
Soviet Union, (Russia)

At the 11th Party Congress in 1922, Lenin nominated Stalin as the party's new General Secretary. Although concerns were expressed that adopting this new post on top of his others would overstretch his workload and give him too much power, Stalin was appointed to the position.
