Hi, It's Maria, and today is my turn to do the journal, so let's start.
At the beginning of the class, some of us aked Paqui questions about the exam of The Age of Empires and the WW1, don't forget to study!!
Then, We started the new unit, "The Russian Revolutions". We started with Russia under de tsars, the main features were: The inmense empire, autocracy, the prohibition of political parties, the population as peasants and industries and workers in some cities.
For that Paqui have explained us the legend of Anastasia Nicolayevna. The story of Anastasia Romanov is one of the most heart-wrenching stories ever told; it is about the horrific fate that she and her family suffered during the Bolshevik Revolution. To this day, the tragedy still resurrects doubt as to what exactly happened to the young Grand Duchess of Russia. Anastasia was the daughter of the last Russian tsar, Nicholas II. After she and her family were executed, rumors claimed that she might have survived.
Also Disney and more companies created films about this history.
(IF YOU WANT TO READ MORE ABOUT THE MISTERY OF ANASTASIA, HERE YOU HAVE THE LINK OF A PAGE WITH THE THEORY AND WITH A SHORT AND INTERESTING VIDEO.)
Then Paqui showed us the political parties that were forbbiden:
After that we learned about the Russian revolution and the USSR, and we started with the Russian Revolution of 1905.
uprising that was instrumental in convincing Tsar Nicholar II to attempt the transformation of the Russian government from an autocracy into a constitutional monarchy. For several years before 1905 and especially after the humiliating Russo-Japanese war (1904–05), diverse social groups demonstrated their discontent with the Russian social and political system. Their protests ranged from liberal rhetoric to strikes and included student riots and terrorist assassinations. These efforts, coordinated by the Union of Liberation, culminated in the massacre of peaceful demonstrators in the square before the Winter Palace, St. Petersburg, on Bloody Sunday,
In general this was all the theory of today. For homework Paqui told us to do a scheme about the revolutions, so DO IT!
Today was a interesting day, I loved the history of Anastasia, and you?
Byes classmates :)
