It even picked the public's heroes: cosmonauts such as Yuri Gagarin, child hero-martyrs like Pavlik Morozov, who allegedly denounced his traitorous father and was murdered by his family in 1932, and Alexei Stakhanov, who supposedly fulfilled 14 times his production targets -- depending on the version of the story.
It even picked the public's heroes: not just people like cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, the first human in outer space, but wholly invented characters and achievements, like Pavlik Morozov, the child/martyr who allegedly denounced his traitorous father and was murdered by his family in 1932, and Alexei Stakhanov, who supposedly fulfilled fourteen times his production targets.
