Galina Yakovlevna "Galya" Dzhugashvili (Russian: Галина Яковлевна Джугашвили; 19 February 1938 – 27 August 2007) was a Russian translator of French. She was the granddaughter of Joseph Stalin, the daughter of Stalin's elder son, Yakov Dzhugashvili. She consistently challenged widely accepted accounts of her father's internment and death at a Nazi prison camp. Biography[edit] Galina Dzhugashvili was born in Moscow. Her mother was Yulia Meltzer, a well-known Jewish dancer from Odessa. After meeting Yulia at a reception, Yakov fought with her second husband, Nikolai Bessarab, and arranged her divorce. Bessarab was later arrested by the NKVD

and executed. Yakov became her third husband. Yakov was a senior lieutenant in the Soviet artillery in the Second World War. Historians have traditionally maintained that he was captured by the Germans in 1941 and died at the Sachsenhausen concentration camp in 1943 after Stalin declined to exchange him for the captured German general Field Marshal Friedrich Paulus. Indeed, Stalin regarded Soviet PoWs as traitors, and had Yulia imprisoned in Lubyanka for two years. The United States Defense Department

was in possession of documents which indicated that Yakov Dzhugashvili

was shot by a concentration camp guard, which were shown to Galina Dzhugashvili in 2003, but which she rejected, claiming that her father was never taken prisoner by the Germans, but rather was killed in battle in 1941. She continuously maintained that any photographs or letters indicating her father was at the prison camp were Nazi propaganda.[1] Galina Dzhugashvili studied philology at Moscow

Moscow
and employed by the United Nations, but kept her maiden name. They had one son, Selim (b. 1970), who was born severely handicapped. Dzhugashvili died from cancer at the Burdenko military hospital in Moscow, aged 69. References[edit]
