I think Stalin is a saviour of USSR as he helped the Soviet Union rise from the ashes , before Stalin , the Soviet Union was not developing well and was poor , but after Stalin came , he helped the Soviet Union to be one of the most industrialised country of that time at the expense of millions of people.
The source shows a picture of Stalin before and after it was edited , the edited version does not include Nikolai Yezhov , this is because Stalin wanted to boost his status as well as discredit his rivals , this source is chosen to show that Stalin got all his rivals edited out so that he gets more credibility , this did help the Soviet Union as with a higher status more will help him and listen to him develop the country.
The source shows Stalin with many people looking up to him as a leader with a caption " Under the leadership of the Great Stalin - Forward to Communism! " this source is chosen as it shows that Stalin had the people on his side and are all believing in him that he can lead them towards better days. This benefits the Soviet Union as Stalin lead them to be one of the most industrialised countries at that time
This source shows dead animals and peasants , this shows that during the Great Famine , Stalin had all the peasants food and animals taken as Stalin wanted to have all the produce consolidated and shared , this caused many peasants to hide their produce but in the end they were forcibly taken and thus many peasants died to famine , I chose this source as it shows the extent of the great famine , this is not beneficial to the country as it killed many people and that will affect the workforce
The source shows a picture of a women working as a factory worker and this shows that women can help the Soviet Union turn into a major industrial country , I chose this source as it really shows the social impact as it shows that everyone had equal rights and can all work. This would benefit the Soviet Union as there would be more people in the workforce
The cartoon shows Stalin pouring paint from a bucket labelled red propaganda over the earth , this shows that Stalin is going to spread his propaganda in the Soviet Union to make it seem to his people that he did a lot of things and this would be beneficial to the Soviet Union as it would convince Stalin's people to listen to him and develop the country.
The video shows that Stalin had forced all his men or citizens to work from day to night with little to no food , I chose this source to show that Stalin only cared about industrialisation and had little care for his people , this was beneficial to the country as it massively boosted its growth but also caused the deaths of millions
