Signs of the Times

In November we went on a trip to the graves of holy rabbis in Ukraine, which we usually do in the summer. This year we started off in the city of Dnepropetrovsk, at the new Museum, which especially shows life here before and during the Holocaust.
Some of the PR signs were almost humorous.

“I go to the bathhouse after work.”

Stalin: “Every day more and more joyful life”

I'm not sure, but I think this is ‘I believe a hundredfold, we’ll meet at the anniversary.' (or ‘at the hundredth anniversary.’)

“Be vigilant on your post”

Extolling the virtues of the women who worked on the collective farms

“The victory of the five-year (plan) is a blow to capitalism”

I like all that memorabilia. Especially when Stalin says "Every day more and more joyful life. He was perhaps thinking in all those he had killed.
