Nationalism Ekes
Out Internationale
(An expose of Stalin’s repudiation of communism in Rus
sia, based upon first-hand observations behind the Iron Cur
tain by The Christian Science Monitor staff writer Ernest S.
Pisko.—The Editors.)
When Vyacheslav M. Molotov visited Washington as
Soviet Foreign Minister during the war, a military band
greeted him at the airfield with the playing of The Inter
Inside the Soviet-Union, whenever officials gathered for
some festive occasion, proceedings either were opened or
closed with the playing of The Internationale.
The Internationale, the flaming appeal to a worldwide
proletarian revolution, was the anthem of the Soviet Union
and the battle hymn of Communists everywhere.
Today, all this has changed. The Internationale has lost
its place of honor. It has been crowded out by The Hymn of
the Soviet Union which was performed for the first time on
Jan. 1, 1944, and which glorifies the “one and mighty Soviet
Union,” the “safe bulwark of the friendship of peoples.”
This change of anthems has its deeper meaning. On
the surface, it fitted into the sequence of measures by which
the Kremlin, after June, 1941, mobilized a general and non
political feeling of patriotism in the fight against the Ger-
—From The New York Times man invaders. But on a deeper level, the adoption of a new
and plainly nationalistic anthem signifies that Stalin appar
ently thought the time had come to tear down the pillar
of internationalism, one of the last Marxist pillars left in tfe
remodeled edifice of Sovietism.
