    This series can be found on Netflix at least here in North America and perhaps I assume Russia.

    Trostky is a beautiful series. Showing us for example the relationship between Trotsky and Lenin, Trostky and Stalin, and for example the relation between Trostky and the noted scholar Sigmund Freud. Trostky is not just a Tv show, it is a historic Tv show

    1913: When Hitler, Trotsky, Tito, Freud and Stalin all lived in the same place

    https://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-21859771

    Stalin is depicted in one scene in a daring attempt to rob a train. There is another scene where Stalin is blown away by a stirring speech provided by Trotsky, Stalin goes to shake Trotskys hand but Trotsky either does not see Stalin or refuses to shake Stalins hand. Another great scene shows Lenin, Stalin and Trotsky just the three of them holding a private meeting.

    One of the most interesting parts of the series is the evolving relation between Stalin and Trotsky...these were both pretty tough guys competing for power some might say they were both unforgiving and relentless in their effort to accomplish goals.

      Interesting. But I suspect that like me, there are other ACG's members that aren't likely to ascribe the word "beautiful", to that crew; although Freud is cool.

        Thats no problem its a misunderstanding. The post suggested that The show Trotsky is a beautiful series. It has received good reviews I enjoy how the show depicts the relationship between Trotsky and Lenin and Trostky and Stalin. A # of historic figures Russian and non Russian are depicted in the Russian Series Trotsky.

        The show in part is motivating. Showing how Trotsky, a Jew despised for his background by some of the Tsarist Russian officials, would go on to rise to be beloved by many Communists and even non Communists worldwide.

          The ending IMO was a disappointment. But the first few episodes were pretty good

            They mistook Stalin for Pilsudski probably:

            Can't understand what is the origin of this idiotic myth for housewives, but in reality Stalin never personally took part in robberies.

              I can think of a few-the gold reserves of republican Spain- for a starter......

                Maybe, maybe not. But it was a breath of fresh air to see Stalin not depicted as a maniac. I know Stalin has his critiques, and maybe many of them are true perhaps some of them are not. The bottom line I would say wrt this thread is that The Tv Series Trostky shows Lenin, Stalin, and Trotsky in a somewhat positive manner(there is the negative parts though). Almost as if not to disrespect the legacy of these 3.

                And it was fascinating to see how the series depicted the meetings between Stalin and Trotsky, as well between Stalin Lenin and Trotsky.

                Housewives? Like the real housewives of Beverly Hills, or maybe some blue collar housewives?

                In any event wrt Stalin and robberies....if anything it would make Stalin look cooler, here a man whom robs from the rich to give to the poor. That is one way to look at it, perhaps another is of viewing Stalin as some sort of criminal rebel. Either way, put up against other figures of history Stalin has his good and his bad.

                  What do you say to the following ,

                  The 1907 Tiflis bank robbery, also known as the Yerevan Square expropriation,[1] was an armed robbery on 26 June 1907[a] in the city of Tiflis in the Tiflis Governorate in the Caucasus Viceroyalty of the Russian Empire(now Georgia's capital, Tbilisi). A bank cash shipment was stolen by Bolsheviks to fund their revolutionary activities.
                  .....
                  The robbery was organized by a number of top-level Bolsheviks, including Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, Maxim Litvinov, Leonid Krasin, and Alexander Bogdanov, and executed by a party of revolutionaries led by Stalin's early associate Ter-Petrosian (Kamo).

                    See the word "personally". Stalin's real role in organization of "expropriation" is rather unclear.
