Today’s Tunisian Embassy in Moscow, with its attractive walled garden, was once owned by Lavrenti Beria, appointed the head in 1938 of Joseph Stalin’s infamous and feared secret police, the NKVD. When the Tunisian Embassy dug up the garden to mend some water pipes, what did they find?

Answer: The bodies of several young girls. Beria had spent his nights having teenagers abducted from the streets and brought to his villa where they were tortured or raped. If they resisted they were strangled and buried in his wife’s rose garden.
