The death of Joseph Stalin on March 5, 1953 generated a tremendous amount of uncertainty in the West, and a good deal of it is reflected in the attached column. A list of possible successors was provided - two of the names played an immediate roll in the governance of the Soviet Union: Georgy Malenkov (1902 1988) - who ruled for the first few days, until he was replaced by Nikolai Bulganin (1895 1975). Bulganin ran the shop until he, too, was replaced by Stalin's right-hand man: Nikita Khrushchev (1894 1971) - who was known widely as "the hangman of the Ukraine".

1953 was the year in which the Cold War showed some signs of thawing out a wee bit. Serious peace negotiations seeking an end to the Korean War were commenced (click here to read about that) and in April the Associated Press journalist William Nathan Oatis was released from a Czechoslovakian prison after having served two years of a ten-year sentence for espionage.

Additional magazine and newspaper articles about the Cold War may be read on this page.
