Syllabus:

Between 1917 and 1953, the peoples of the USSR experienced a revolution, a brutal civil war, the cultural flowering of the 1920s, the upheaval of industrialisation and collectivisation in the 1930s, the trauma of Stalin's 'Great Terror', and the ordeal of World War II. Millions of people died or were killed, but there were also spectacular achievements in the military, economic and cultural spheres. This course explores the epic history of the largest country on earth from the revolution of 1917 to the death of Stalin in 1953. We do this from the perspective of some of the historical characters who lived through the period. Each student will choose an individual historical figure whose life and career s/he will trace through the great events of the period 1917 to 1953. By pooling their knowledge of specific individuals, students will build up a broader picture of what it meant to live through this amazing period of history.
