Excuse me Churchill, what do you mean by "iron curtain"?
I mean that Europe has divided into the east and the west from war. The Soviet efforts to take control of its neighbors is creating an "iron curtain".
Who is in the east and who is in the west?
Well because Germany has divided, the Soviets are controlling the east with half of Berlin under a communist government. The west is being occupied by the US, Britain, and France under a capitalist government.
Okay class, who can tell me what the impact of the "iron curtain" after WW2 was?
After Europe divided from the "iron curtain" it led to the Cold War with a split between the communist and capitalist.
Good, now you know what led to the Cold War and how it impacted the world around us.
