FC: Scrap Book Of Iosif Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili (Joseph Stalin) Biography By:Michael Lemanske
1: Joseph Stalins Childhood Joseph Stalin was born in Gori, Georgia on 21 December, 1879. Georgia was then a part of the Russian empire. Stalin’s original name was Iosif Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili. His father was a cobbler and an alcoholic. His mother worked as maid. As a child, Joseph experienced the poverty that most peasants had to endure in Russia at the end of the nineteenth century. At the age of seven he suffered from smallpox. He survived but the scars remained on his face. Due to this, he was called as “pocky” by his friends.
2: Joseph Stalins Adulthood During this time Russia was ruled by an all powerful Czar. Stalin did not like it so he revolted against these ideals. Because he did this he became apart of the Social Democratic Labour Party. Also instead of going into exile like a lot of his other compatriots who also disliked czarism, Joseph stayed in the country to build a resistance and eventually change Russia. Joseph was doing everything in his power to take down czarism and even helped plan a strike at the Rothschild plant. He was put into custody for his involvement and was sentenced to a year and a half in jail. After he was aloud to leave jail he was shipped to Siberia where he stayed until he escaped in 1904. A dispute that boomed in 1903 between Vladimir Lenin and Julius Martov would make Stalin's next political move happen. Stalin became a supporter of the Bolsheviks, which supported Vladimir Lenin. In 1904 when Stalin escaped from Siberia, almost as soon as he arrived he began planning strikes as he had before. Even his deportation to Siberia could not tame his political fervor and desire to change Russia the way he wanted it to be.
