Tlie "Joyous Days of the Stalin- ites" were licld on the fourth anniversary of I hi- hnmling over of the Rtnlin plant to the Czech? by the Her! Army. Tlie plant was built by the Germans during the occu- nation of Czechoslovakia. Therefore, technically, it constituted Rir^la war rjoL'.y. However, it was given to the Cwchs as a gift by special order of Stalin. Henceforth, evcrv year the Communist-controllerl Czech government holds a "thank you" festival.
