I have no information about this poster except that it's STALIN HOLDING A BABY. If I were that kid's parents I would be holding my breath so hard right now, given what happened to this other little girl: http://wonderfulthingsdaily.blogspot.co.uk/2006/12/presidents-and-babies.html

In September of 1940, Witold Pilecki (May 13, 1901 – May 25, 1948) was a Polish Resistance solider who wanted to know the truth about Auschwitz. He volunteered to infiltrate the nazi death camp, spending the next 2.5 years as a prisoner. On his escape, Pilecki smuggled details about the nazi methods of execution and interrogation and eventually authored the first WWII intelligence report on the concentration camp.

The reason why I've denominated this Russian Makarov Automatic Pistol as a cultural artifact is that, in spite of its Stalinist origins, it bears on its grip a medallion of the Romanov double eagle which has been adopted as the national symbol of post-Communist Russia. Wow! Talk about mixed metaphors! A Communist firearm bearing the symbol of the Russian Imperial Family!
