This cartoon highlights the idea of the 5-year plan from Stalin, with texts on the image stating that " The Victory of the 5-Year Plan is a Hit Against Capitalism". This shows how Stalin's 5-year plan was a success, making Russian agriculture much more efficient, huge increases in production and improved industrial power. These had a huge positive impact to the USSR as the increase in production had changed the Soviet Union from an agricultural country into a major industrial power, hence saving the USSR from economic crisis.
This short clip from Stalin's speech had briefly mentioned how Stalin would daringly take on any aggression from Germany if Hitler decides to take any action against them, while calling Hitler "a person with morals of an animal". This speech would have shined Stalin in a new light for being a "hero" as he brought proud to his country by standing strong on his stance. This would bring in more support from citizens, hence increasing support towards the USSR.
This picture clearly illustrates the respect soldiers have for Stalin. The soldiers all look up to Stalin smiling, whilst he pats a soldier on the back during a handshake with the latter. The wording on the bottom states, "Work so Comrade Stalin can Thank You!" I chose this picture as it shows how the soldiers are elated to recieve encourgement from a leader whom they look up to. This then tells me how Stalin had gained the favour of soldiers whom fight for the country, whereas is a huge advantage in order for Stalin to work and advance foward in the USSR. The propaganda also encourages soldiers, citizens to work more so as if to recieve high-praise from a respectable figure. Having the support of the soldiers will prove to help the USSR.
This picture shows a figure of Stalin with a joyful expression while surrounded by citizens, soldiers and students with happy expressions. I chose this picture as it clearly depicted how Stalin was an idolized figure, with the figure being kind looking, yet still a serious man. Stalin's presence in this picture is a strong one, indicating how his image was very powerful in Soviet Russia. Due to the support from citizens, especially workers, Stalin is able to get more people to work in production operations such as factories, to expand their industrial workforce. Thus, USSR became an important industrial power, saving it from any economical crises
This picture shows Stalin surrounded by a large group of people of different nationalities as they all look up to him. This portrays Stalin as having a wide following from many countries and cultures of the world, and all of whom respect him and are willing to submit to his leadership. The text in the picture states that, "Under the Leadership of Great Stalin - Foward to Communism". This further emphasizes how Stalin will influence the other nationalities to take upon communism in their country, thus increasing his credibility. With more rise to power, Stalin is able to get more citizens to work for the country, thus helping increase the workforce.
This cartoon shows a teenage girl looking happy as she goes to school. This propaganda highlights how the children were happy to be going to school, also enforcing a compulsory schooling for every child at the same period. Stalin's introduction of compulsory schooling had helped greatly improved the country's literacy rate. At the same time, the school's education might also feed the children with propaganda in order to increase support towards Stalin. The increased literacy rate impacted USSR socially.
