Rise and fall of the communismus
Each month kids in our school receive a magazine that contains very intersting facts and stories to different school subjects.
This time I found a two-paged article about former sovjetunion. I saw the article by accident. The kids got the new magazin today, handed out by our German teacher and the pupil had to flick through the pages.
I donˋt get a print and so Iˋve to look with the boy beside me.
I could hardly await to hear the bell ring. Then it was my time to read the whole story.
It starts by czar Nikolaus II, Wladimir Lenin, Josef Stalin and last one who was named is Michail Gorbatschow. It is explained the ˋRed Armyˋ, the ˋRed Flagˋ and lots of things to know.
The October revolution was on 7.11. Some of you will ask why they call it October revolution though it happend on the 7th of November. Itˋs easy explained, the Sovjetunion at that time was still using the Julian Calendar and it was two weeks behind.
It is explained what Communismus is all about. The explanations in general are very simple and kept short, the right amount of things for kids to know.
In Vienna there is a memorial of a soldiers carring a flag and a golden shield. Itˋll remind us that the ˋRed Armyˋ was involved to free Austria from the Nazism.
For some of you who intend to visit Austria, the memorial is sitting on the ˋ Schwarzenbergplatzˋ.
