    Let's hope it goes better today. Got one to start us off:

    According to official soviet figures*, during the great purges of the communist party of 1937-8 how many people were shot? I'll take answers at my discretion, probably looking to the narest 50,000 or so though.



    *the actual numbers, of course, may be much higher, however the soviet figures are the only exact number we have and are good enough to base this question on.

    Sorry, maybe I should clarify. These are post-USSR, declassified soviet figures. But you're right, the answer is probably still a very conservative number.

    Yesss, I'll take that.

    official soviet number 681,692. That's out of 1,548,366 arrests.

    Historian Robert Conquests has argued that the real number of deaths may be nearer 2 million. And this is before we get to the artificial famines...


    Anyway, you're up cubby
