Biography

Josef Stalin was the communist leader of Russia from (1929-1953) 

Mummification

Upon his death in 1953, Russian leaders requested that the body of Stalin be preserved in a similar fashion to his predecessor Vladimir Lenin. Stalin's mummified body was originally placed in Lenin's Mausoleum, but because of his lack of popularity with later Russian leader's, his mummy was removed and buried separately in 1962.
