The 20th Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (CPSU) took place in Moscow in February 1956 and is most famous for the unscheduled closed-door speech given on the final day to Soviet delegates by Khruschchev where he denounced Stalin's policies, his brutality and pursuit of a personality cult. Foreign delegates were not invited but were given transcripts the following day.
