The Russian Revolution

World Revolutions for Students

Warning: Contains archival footage of deceased persons. Years of war and political and economic oppression destroyed the faith of the struggling Russian people in their once-beloved leader. This led to the October Revolution, which established the world's first Communist government. The Russian Revolution depicts how this movement was driven by the new ideas and strong leadership of Vladimir Lenin, and was sparked by the hope for a better way of life. Through superb archival footage, primary documents and expert commentary, students will learn how the political upheaval of 1917 led to a radical departure with the Czarist past and set Russia on the communist path - a utopian dream that went largely unfulfilled.
