NEW YORK, November 29 (Itar-Tass) —— Joseph Stalin's daughter Svetlana Alliluyeva died of cancer in the United States, in the city of Richland Center, Wisconsin, at the age of 85, the New York Times reported on Monday.
Alliluyeva was born on February 28, 1926 in the family of Joseph Stalin and Nadezhda Alliluyeva. She left the Soviet Union in 1967 and lived in India, Switzerland, England and the United States. In 1970, she married architect William Peters and changed her name for Lana Peters. In the mid-1980s, she returned to the Soviet Union, but shortly after the return, she went back to America. Since then, she lived secluded life in a town in Wisconsin and did not meet with reporters. In 1967, she published her memoirs "Twenty Letters to a Friend”, which aroused great public interest.
According to the New York Times, Alliluyeva died on November 22. The newspaper did not receive confirmation of the information from her daughter Olga, who resides in Portland, Oregon.
