Maybe they are wondering why one is generally cosidered to be the worst human being in history and the other one, who is responsible for more deaths, is almost a national hero.

The difference is that most of the people Stalin killed were killed for opposing him, the state, or communism, which has been a common (but cruel regardless) method of dealing with problems since the beginnings of human government. In contrast, genocide is quite rare and Hitler's was probably the worst in history. I'm not saying Stalin should be considered a hero anywhere, but it makes perfect sense that Hitler has received far more hate.

Fun! I tried those auto-completes, and here in NZ there are 4 different answers: "Lenin", "Brittany", and "Modern Humans". Google auto-complete wouldn't accept "autocrat" at all! It insisted on replacing it with "autocracy", and the top match for that was "oligarchy".
