• The granddaughter of Stalin was the star of social networking
About her mother - Svetlana Alliluyeva, Stalin's daughter - known to all, is still often write about her turbulent life. But about Olga Peters, which now bears the name of Chris Evans, the press barely mentioned. To talk about it in the 1980s., When her mother, along with her back in the USSR, and then, after moving to the US, forgotten for 35 years. And now Stalin's granddaughter again forced to talk about himself - the last time it periodically shocking users of social networks photo shoots in the style of punk rock, piercing, radical haircuts and unexpected confessions ...
In all, Joseph Stalin, 9 grandchildren, but this extravagant lady is always to engage the most attention. Olga Peters - daughter Svetlana Alliluyeva, who emigrated to the United States, was born May 21, 1971 Over 5 years before Svetlana Alliluyeva to escape from the USSR and settled in Princeton (NJ, USA). She married an American architect William Wesley Peters, and in 1978 became an American citizen.
In the childhood Olga Peters did not know about what was known by her grandfather, and could not understand why her family show such attention. About how she learned the truth, Olga later told me: "Somebody blabbed at school. Photographers besieged on all sides, and the teachers had to hide me and smuggle home. I did not understand what was going on, because (I understand, it sounds crazy) I did not know that my grandfather was a tyrant. To me, he was one of three people in the photo that won the Second World War: Churchill, Roosevelt, and it is! Then the mother asked me to sit down and listen to it carefully. So I found out about his crimes ... Stalin - this is not a name, and the Bolshevik alias. My family - it Dzhugashvili, Russian Georgian roots. It seems to me that I got from them a legacy of a certain sense of sadness, melancholy Russian. If you put aside the history books, truth, lies, controversy, I would say that most of all I touched grandparents cruelty towards their children. Although I do not have children, it seems to me that parents are obliged to care for their offspring, and to think about his future. "
Journalists have always shown special attention to their family, so they often had to relocate. First they changed a few cities in the United States, then moved to England in 1984, her mother decided to return to the USSR. There are 2 months living in Moscow, followed by 2 years - in Georgia. At age 14, Olga went to England, and then - again in America. After that about it for a long time nothing was heard.
Svetlana Alliluyeva wanted her daughter grew up American, and when she was a teenager expressed a desire to change the name called Chrissie after the heroine of her favorite sitcom "Three - a company", the mother did not object. In one of his autobiographical books Alliluyeva wrote: "Because of my inner aversion to its own past, I never taught her Russian language, a word; I wanted her to feel one hundred percent American. "
About his life twists and turns later, Olga told me: "In 16 years, I married my best friend and was Chris Evans. Pretty soon I got divorced and for some time after the death of his father in 1991, returned to Wisconsin to tackle imports of Asian goods. All this time, my mother lived in London, and then in Cornwall. She became a Catholic. I turned to Buddhism, which is widespread in Madison. In the mid-1990s, my mother came back to me in Wisconsin. "
Due to the constant relocations girl had no time making friends, her mother did not like guests and longed for my friends who remained in the Soviet Union, and Chris from childhood accustomed to loneliness. She never had a family, and gave birth to children. From relatives in it - only one barber and Gino dog Sparta. Today, 48-year-old Chris Evans lives in Portland and works in shops selling vintage fashion and antiques. Journalists are to it much less interest than her mother, and only after her death in 2011 her twice asked to give an interview. However, Chris and she did not express a desire to communicate with journalists. Only after she was diagnosed with breast cancer, she asked for help from the public. Later Chris said that took a course of chemotherapy and is recovering.
Periodically Chris Evans attracts attention in social networks. This caused a storm of criticism in 2016 her photo shoot in the style of punk rock, where she posed in shorts, ripped tights, t-shirt with a target and a toy gun in his hand - in the form of a comic book character of the English. Chris is interested in piercings, hair color and hairstyle changes almost every month, and on the hand made tattoo "Dear Mommy". These photos are collected on the network hundreds of comments from angry to humorous, in the spirit of "Stalin it is not!"
