Hey, Hitler was responsible for a lot of deaths also but he didn't get placed in a display box. Nor did Stalin.

Hitler died in disgrace and Stalin didn't want to be second fiddle to Lenin.

@KDP: Hitler's body was doused in gas and burnt crispy. That would have made a whole different kind of display. As for Stalin, maybe they just didn't think they needed to give him a fancy sneeze guard to protect him from errant mucus.

I read a funny (and scary) thing about how Stalin is viewed in modern times. On one hand we have a Russian court in 2009, ruling on a suit by Stalin's grandson, Yevgeny Dzhugashvili, against the newspaper, Novaya Gazeta, ruled that referring to Stalin as a "bloodthirsty cannibal" was not libel. While on the other half of all the respondents in a poll of Russian youth aged from 16 to 19, agreed Stalin was a wise leader.

He was definitely a psycho, but a charismatic psycho who knew how to rally the populace.

And that he had in common with Hitler.
