This is a picture of Vera Mukhina’s 1937 sculpture. They are positioned under a vast open sky – a symbol of unlimited possibilities – and atop a globe of the world with the USSR outlined in red. They embody the energy, spirit, and ambition of the Soviet nation with their outstretched arms reaching to the sky as an emblem of national triumph. This is to show the ideal Soviet citizen. This is beneficial for the USSR as more people would contribute selflessly to the country.
This is a slide i chosen to show how Stalin consolidate his power and enforce party discipline. He purges to eliminate his enemies and remove opposition to the Soviet government. This caused many Russians to be in constant fear that the government would kill them.
This is website shows how badly the people suffered during the Great Famine. People were usually malnourished and they starve due to the lack of food. They were so desperate that cannibalism and eating of corpse were seen. This caused 5 million to 8 million Russians to die due to starvation.
This video shows how USSR improved along the years and what have they built. The people in the video seemed very happy about the factories and the trans-Siberian railway built. This is beneficial to USSR as it allows it to grow economically.
The Soviet constitution guaranteed equal rights to women. Stalin's industrialisation efforts encouraged women to enter the workforce and become productive members of the economy. The state-run childcare centres were built to enable women to work in the factories. This is beneficial for the women as they are able to have equal rights as men.
In the 1930s, Stalin began to get rid of anyone who he suspected of opposing him. These attempts became known as the Purges. Examples of groups of people Stalin purged were the Engineers, scientists and industrial engineers, administrators and Red Army commanders and officers. Stalin killed many of the people in USSR so this is no beneficial for the people.
