The executioner with the angle's face ...

I tell you: It’s a monster’s story! The story of Vasili Mikhailovich Blokhin (7 January 1895-3 February 1955). A Major-General who served as the chief executioner of the Soviet Union, hand-picked by Stalin in 1926. Blokhin is recorded as having personally executed tens of thousands of prisoners by his own hand. He initially decided on an ambitious quota of 300 executions per night, and the prisoners were led into a specially designed room with padded walls for soundproofing, a sloping concrete floor with a drain and hose, and a log wall for the prisoners to stand against. Blokhin – outfitted in a leather butcher’s apron, cap, and shoulder-length gloves to protect his uniform – pushed the prisoner against the wall and shot him once in the base of the skull, working without pause for 10 hours each night, executing an average of 1 prisoner every 3 minutes. His count of 7,000 shot in 28 days remains one of the most organized and protracted mass murders by a single individual on record, and earned him the Guiness World Record for „Most Prolific Executioner“. This monster died peacefully in his bed, showered with medals and compliments, never went on trial. Looking at his innocent, even fatherly face, I tried to see into his brain but failed. What a horrible system which hails a man like him to follow his beastly instincts
