On March 6, the coffin with Stalin's body was displayed at the Hall of Columns in the House of the Unions and it stayed there for three days. On March 9, the body of Stalin was delivered to Red Square to be interred in Lenin's Mausoleum where he lay in state until 1961. Speeches were delivered by Khrushchev, Malenkov, Molotov, and Beria. After the speeches, pallbearers carried the coffin to the mausoleum. As Stalin's body was being put into the mausoleum, a military band played the Soviet National Anthem. After the anthem played, a military parade of the Moscow Garrison was held in Stalin's honor. In the public's efforts to pay their respects to Stalin's casket, a number of people died as they were crushed and trampled by the amassed crowd.
