Storyboard Text

  • In 1924, Vladimir Lenin died and his reign as the first Communist leader ends.
  • Our dear leader, Vladimir Lenin, has unfortunately passed away.
  • Oh no! We need a new leader at once! Who is fit enough for our country?
  • This is interesting...perhaps I, Joseph Stalin, should become the new leader of Russia. I must have all the power and bring about great change.
  • Joseph Stalin, a Soviet, becomes Russia's new leader. He made Russia into a totalitarian state, where he would solely have power over every aspect of the government and people's lives.
  • So, you mean to tell me that people aren't satisfied with me as a ruler?
  • Stalin feared that other Communists were conspiring against him, so he ruled with terror and brutality to establish himself as a man of power.
  • That is exactly what I was going to say. Many have talked bad about you, and I'm afraid that a revolt may occur.
  • Throughout the Great Purge, Stalin used a secret police to enforce Communism and rid of anyone who opposed him or Communist ideals. You wouldn't know who was apart of this, it could be anyone: a friend, family member, etc.
  • I'm sorry Greg, but I have to send you to be executed. No one gets away with badmouthing the government. 
  • Geoffrey, you know I didn't mean anything that I said. I love Stalin, and communism is great for Russia.
  • Many soviet peasants were unsatisfied with collective farms. People had their land taken away and any goods produced resulted in a profit shared among all those who lived on the farm. Russia being a command economy meant that the government controlled factories,  businesses, and farms.
  • We must work hard to support the Russian economy.
  • I don't know why I'm forced to live on this group farm! I don't like this at all.
  • Why must we work all day?
  • Stalin developed a series of Five-Year Plans in order to build up industrialization and increase farm output. Heavy-industry was used, and consumer goods were neglected. Russia relied on factories and farms to help with increasing the economy.
  • Back to the factory we go lads. It is time to keep manufacturing military goods.
