Lavrentiy Beria

Lavrentiy Pavlovich Beria was a Soviet politician, Marshal of the Soviet Union and state security administrator, chief of the Soviet security and secret police apparatus under Joseph Stalin during World War II, promoted to deputy premier under Stalin from 1941. He officially joined the Politburo in 1946. Beria was the longest-lived and most influential of Stalin's secret police chiefs, wielding his most substantial influence during and after World War II. Following the Soviet invasion of Poland in 1939 he was responsible for organising the Katyn massacre, he administered vast sections of the Soviet state and acted as the de facto Marshal of the Soviet Union in command of NKVD field units responsible for barrier troops and Soviet partisan intelligence and sabotage operations on the Eastern Front during World War II. Beria administered the vast expansion of the Gulag labour camps and was responsible for overseeing the secret detention facilities for scientists and engineers known as sharashkas.

He attended the Yalta Conference with Stalin, who introduced him to U. S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt as "our Himmler". After the war, he organised the Communist takeover of the state institutions in Central Europe and Eastern Europe and political repressions in these countries. Beria's uncompromising ruthlessness in his duties and skill at producing results culminated in his success in overseeing the Soviet atomic bomb project. Stalin gave it absolute priority and the project was completed in under five years. After Stalin's death in March 1953, Lavrentiy Beria became First Deputy Premier of the Soviet Union and head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. In this dual capacity, he formed a troika alongside Georgy Malenkov and Vyacheslav Molotov that led the country in Stalin's place. A coup d'état by Nikita Khrushchev with help from Marshal of the Soviet Union Georgy Zhukov in June 1953, removed Beria from power, he was arrested on charges of 357 counts of rape and treason, he was sentenced to death and was executed by Pavel Batitsky on December 23, 1953.

Beria was born near Sukhumi, in the Sukhum Okrug of the Kutais Governorate. He grew up in a Georgian Orthodox family. Beria's mother, Marta Jaqeli, was religious and church-going, she was married and widowed before marrying Beria's father, Pavel Khukhaevich Beria, a landowner from Abkhazia. Beria had a brother, a deaf sister named Anna. In his autobiography, Lavrentiy Beria mentioned only his sister and his niece, implying that his brother was dead or had no relationship with Beria after he left Merkheuli. Beria attended a technical school in Sukhumi, joined the Bolsheviks in March 1917 while a student in the Baku Polytechnicum; as a student, Beria distinguished himself in the sciences. The Polytechnicum's curriculum concentrated on the petroleum industry. Beria worked for the anti-Bolshevik Mussavatists in Baku. After the Red Army captured the city on 28 April 1920, Beria was saved from execution because there was not enough time to arrange his shooting and replacement, Sergei Kirov intervened.

While in prison, he formed a connection with Nina Gegechkori his cellmate's niece, they eloped on a train. She was a trained scientist from an aristocratic family. In 1919, at the age of twenty, Beria started his career in state security when the security service of the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic hired him while still a student at the Polytechnicum. In 1920 or 1921 Beria joined the original Bolshevik secret police. At that time, a Bolshevik revolt took place in the Menshevik-controlled Democratic Republic of Georgia, the Red Army subsequently invaded; the Cheka became involved in the conflict, which resulted in the defeat of the Mensheviks and the formation of the Georgian SSR. By 1922, Beria was deputy head of the Georgian branch of Cheka's successor, the OGPU. In 1924, he led the repression of a Georgian nationalist uprising, after which up to 10,000 people were executed. For this display of "Bolshevik ruthlessness," Beria was appointed head of the "secret-political division" of the Transcaucasian OGPU and was awarded the Order of the Red Banner.

In 1926, Beria became head of the Georgian OGPU. As a result, Beria became an ally in Stalin's rise to power. During his years at the helm of the Georgian OGPU, Beria destroyed the intelligence networks that Turkey and Iran had developed in the Soviet Caucasus, while penetrating the governments of these countries with his agents, he took over Stalin's holiday security. Beria was appointed Secretary of the Communist Party in Georgia in 1931, for the whole Transcaucasian region in 1932, he became a member of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union in 1934. During this time, he began to attack fellow members of the Georgian Communist Party Gaioz Devdariani, who served as Minister of Education of the Georgian SSR.
