Storyboard Text

  • Crowning of Czar Nicholas II
  • I crown you Czar of Russia.
  • I am finally Czar.
  • Bloody Sunday
  • Oh God help us!!!!
  • The Czar said "Keep shooting!"
  • Nicholas II dragging Russia into WWI
  • We don't have enough weaponds sir!!
  • Just give up Russia.
  • Nicholas II became the new czar of Russia in 1894. He continued the autocratic rule that his father Alexander III had used. Many of the Russian citizens were not happy with the new czar. They believed he was not ready, others thought he was too young, and many just wanted an end to autocratic rule. Shortly after becoming czar he married Alexandria Feodorovna and they had 5 children.
  • Lenin returns to Russia
  • Peace, Land, and Bread!
  • He is not ready for this...
  • In 1905 about 200,000 russian workers marched towards the Winter Palace in St. Petersburg. They were determined to speak to the Czar, and demand for more rights. They wanted personal freedom; no more autocratic rule, better and safer working conditions, and a legislature they could choose. The soldiers set fire to the protesters, killing thousands in the crowd. This resulted in a lot of violence and strikes to come for the russian people.
  • Civil War; Reds vs Whites
  • No one is stronger than the Bolsheviks!!
  • When the first World War started in 1914 Nicholas decided to be part of it. This decision caused Russia many problems both at the fronts and back at home. People wanted change and an end to the war. The generals were weak and Nicholas was not strong himself. The soldiers were short on weapons and soon started ignoring orders. 8 million men were dead at the end of the war.
  • Lenin dead; Stalin takes over
  • I'll make Russia great again!
  • With the help of Germany, Lenin returned back to Russia after being sent into exile in 1917. He rapidly gained a great support from Russian citizens and became leader of a new revolutionary group known as the Bolsheviks. Lenin's slogan was, "Peace, land, and bread!" This is exactly what the Russian citizens wanted and is the reason why they supported him. With the Provisional Government overthrown by the Bolsheviks group, Lenin took complete control over Russia. In 1918 Treaty of Brest was signed with Germany and Russia was officially out of the war.
  • Lenin, Lenin!!
  • Peace, Land, and Bread!!
  • Many people were not happy with the way Russia was. Some wanted the Czar rule back, while others wanted a different type of socialism besides the one Lenin was giving. The rest wanted a democratic government. Soon the White Army was created but did not seem to get along. Leon Trotsky leaded the Red Army and crushed the White Army. With 14 million Russians dead, Russia entered a great chaos and famine was a big part of it. The victory for the Red Army proved that nothing could stop them.
  • Leon Trotsky
  • Oh no. We are going to lose...
  • Lenin died in 1924. But before he died he noticed a man by the name of Joseph Stalin gaining a lot of power. Lenin never trusted Stalin and knew he was a danger if he did not use his power the right way. 4 years after Lenin's death Stalin had complete control over the Communist Party. He sent Trotsky to exile and made many changes that affected Russia and its people in many ways. Most of Russia did not like Stalin and his dictatorship but could not speak up; he killed anyone who threatened his power.
  • He has too much power...
