Rise of Communism

Here is the information from the PPT.

Pre-Revolution Russia

Only true Autocracy in Europe

Nicolas II, Last czar of Russia

Believed he was chosen by God.

Russia’s Serfs

Very Poor (serfs)

Working long hours = small log hut, a tiny piece of land, and a few animals.

Pay Taxes

Resist and be beaten

Bloody Sunday

Lost war with Japan

Angered many serfs and workers

Marched on the Winter Palace to ask Czar Nicholas for reforms

Palace troops shot people in the crowd

        More riots began to occur after this…

The effects of WWI

1914: Russia entered World War I and did not do well

Millions were killed, wounded, or missing,

People suffered severe food shortages,

Soldiers did not have enough clothes, shoes, or weapons.

The effects of WWI

Czar ignored the signs that people were unhappy

He was seen as a weak and remote

He did not see that changes were needed in the way that his country was run

Communsim in Russia

Early 1917—there were riots in the streets

Women, factory workers, and farmers demanded a change!

Citzens outnumber the police & the military could not keep the peace

Czar Nicholas was forced to give up his throne, and a weak government took over

Czar & his family were captured

Lenin

        1917: Vladimir Lenin pushed the weak government aside and Communists took       control of Russia

Czar Nicholas & his family were executed

       1922: Lenin reorganized the country and named it the Soviet Union

Joined Russia, Belarus, Armenia, Georgia, & Ukraine

Why Communism

A theory that says the government should own the farms and factories for the benefit of all the citizens

Everyone should share the work equally and receive an equal share of the rewards

Appealed greatly to many Russians (split between rich and poor)

Lenin promised that communism would bring fairness and equality to ALL Russians…
