    ZEMO ALVANI, Georgia — Residents of a small town in the former Soviet republic of Georgia reinstated a monument to dictator Josef Stalin on Friday to mark the 133rd birthday anniversary of their famous compatriot.

    Some 30 residents of the village of Zemo Alvani, 200 kilometers northeast of the capital Tbilisi, gathered to witness the unveiling of the 3-meter-high stone statue of Stalin.

    The statue was removed a year ago by local authorities after President Mikheil Saakashvili said the late dictator was too closely associated with what he called the “Soviet occupation of Georgia.”
    He called for memorials to Stalin to be dismantled.

    “I came here because I love Stalin, and I love my people, said Phatima Patishvili, a Zemo Alvani resident. “I remember when I was 12 how my grandmother was weeping when Stalin died.”

    Now why don't Germans put back up a statue of Adolph Hitler?
