I accept your challenge and I do not believe Joseph Stalin was a worse person than Adolph Hitler.

I believe Stalin was a worse person for the following reasons. In the Holocaust, Nazi's killed roughly 6 million people. However, roughly 20 million died in gulags under Stalin's rule (http://www.history.com...).
Also, Stalin was in power much longer than Hitler, (1922-1952) a total of 30 years. Hitler was only in power for eleven.
Stalin's power went mainly unchecked. One gulag was open for 16 years (http://w3.osaarchivum.org...)
He also restrained freedom for his entire country, not just a certain ethnic group. (http://www.historylearningsite.co.uk...). Stalin also killed more of his own people, (https://www.hawaii.edu...), USSR citizens rather than Jews taken from neighboring countries.
