Joseph Stalin was born in 1872 in the Georgian town of Gori. It was a tough upbringing, where he suffered at the hands of his violent and drunken father. The town of Gori was a violent and crime infested place, even by the standards of Caucasus. Town brawls were common place, and young Joseph soon became a local street gang leader.
