CAUSES OF THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION 1. Autocratic rule of the Czars 2. Industrialization and resulting worker discontent 3. Russo-Japanese War 4. Bloody Sunday 5. World War I 6. Failures of the Provisional Government CAUSES OF THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION POLICIES OF THE CZARS Russias 19th-century czars: Cruel

oppressive, and autocratic Peasants lived in poverty and had no rights. Their ruthless treatment created widespread social unrest and led to violent uprisings Alexander III (1881-1894) used harsh tactics to crush opponents.

Turned Russia into police state teeming with spies and informers. Oppressed non -Russians and carried out pogroms against Russias Jews. Czar Alexander III CAUSES OF THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION POLICIES OF THE CZARS

Nicolas II (son of Alexander III) , became Czar in 1894. The principle of autocracy will be maintained Refused to surrender any of his power. Vowed to maintain autocratic rule.

Blind to changing conditions of his time. Never visited any factories or farms. Had little understanding of working conditions. Weak and ineffective ruler. Czar Nicolas II

CAUSES OF THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION WORKER DISCONTENT Industrialization created problems and discontent. What problems? Angry factory workers felt exploited: Miserably low wages Grueling working conditions Child labor Labor unions outlawed. No political power

Enormous gap between rich and poor. Various radical groups plotted revolutions, including Marxist who tried to ignite revolution among the proletariat Karl Marx The Communist Manifesto CAUSES OF THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION

THE RUSSO-JAPANESE WAR Russia lost war to Japan in 1905. Expected an easy victory to raise morale. Embarrassed to lose war against a second rate power. Russian fleet had sailed for six months to engage the Japanese and was destroyed in under an hour. Humiliating defeat sparks social unrest at

home. CAUSES OF THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION 1905 REVOLUTION / BLOODY SUNDAY In 1905, workers marched in St. Petersburg to demand better working conditions and a say in government. Russian soldiers opened fire on

protestors. Hundreds were killed in Bloody Sunday. A Duma (parliament) created to give people a voice but the Czar dissolved it 10 weeks later. Reading on Bloody Sunday CAUSES OF THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION WORLD WAR I

Czar took unprepared Russia into war with Germany in 1914. Weak generals and poorly equipped soldiers no match for German army. Russian army suffered defeat after defeat and lost 4 million casualties within first year. Soldiers mutinied and deserted by the

thousands. Social unrest at home caused by food and fuel shortages. RASPUTIN In an effort to increase troop morale, Nicholas went to the front, leaving Czarina Alexandra in charge of the government.

Alexandra fell under the spell of Rasputin, a self-proclaimed holy man who claimed to have magical healing powers. Rasputins influence over the Czarina gave him great power. Murdered by Russian nobles in 1916. Why?

Rasputin THE MARCH REVOLUTION, 1917 Huge uprising of workers spread throughout Russia. Soldiers sent to put down the rebellion joined it instead. Czar Nicolas forced to abdicate his throne. Nicolas II would be Russias last Czar Weak provisional (temporary) government replaced Czars regime. Nicolas II after his abdication

CAUSES OF THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENTS MISTAKES Provisional government decided to continue Russias involvement in World War I. Lost support of both soldiers and civilians). Failed to address the concerns of Russias

peasants (no land reform). Resulted in growth of local Soviets (councils) made up of workers, peasants, and soldiers unhappy with the lack of reform. Alexander Kerensky RUSSIAN MARXISTS DIVIDED Mensheviks

Bolsheviks Means minority Means majority Wanted to implement communism in Wanted to implement Russia Wanted to educate the people about

communism Slow process to gain popular support Grass roots movement communism in Russia Believed in radical quick implementation w/out popular consent

Elite group (themselves) would take charge. EMERGED AS DOMINANT SOCIAL REVOLUTIONARY GROUP VLADIMIR LENIN Influenced by ideas of Karl Marx Committed to class struggle and revolution. Organized Bolsheviks elite group of radicals

committed to carrying out revolution in Russia. Promised Peace, Land, and Bread Supported by suffering peasants Workers & Soldiers angry with governments failure to address their needs. Germans helped Lenin return to Russia in 1917 after several years in exile. Why? Lenin's Return

Reading on Lenin Vladimir Lenin 1870-1924 NOVEMBER, 1917 THE BOLSHEVIK REVOLUTION What happened? Bolshevik soldiers seized control of the Winter Palace (government buildings in Petrograd) and arrested

leaders of the provisional government. Uprising in Petrograd All power to the Soviets became the rallying cry of the Bolsheviks. Lenin named as head of new socialist government within hours. RUSSIAN CIVIL WAR, 1918-1920 The Bolshevik revolution was opposed by elements of the army and government loyalists from many social

groups united by their hatred of Communism . Civil war broke out between White Army made up of government loyalists and the Red Army of Bolsheviks (the Reds). Red Army troops White Army troops

THE RED TERROR OF 19181920 Tens of thousands of class enemies were imprisoned and executed without trial by the Bolsheviks during the civil war. Victims included clergymen, aristocrats and wealthy bourgeoisie, deserters from Red Army, and political

opponents of all kinds. THE FATE OF THE ROMANOVS During the early hours of July 17, 1918 Czar Nicholas, his wife Alexandra, his five children, and their servants were herded into the cellar of their prison house and executed. Liberation by the White Army was

imminent and the Reds wanted to get rid of the Czar and his family. In addition to the royal family, the Reds executed their doctor, cook, valet, maid and dog. END OF THE RUSSIAN CIVIL WAR, 1920 Western Allies (including Britain, France, Japan, and the U.S.) sent troops to support the White Army.

Western intervention was half-hearted and ineffective and the Reds defeated the White Army after three years of war. 15 million Russians died in this conflict! Leon Trotsky Red Army Commander

ACTIONS OF THE BOLSHEVIKS IN POWER Land was redistributed to the peasants who were already seizing and dividing up the estates of the landlords and the church. Workers given control of mines and factories.

Signed the Brest-Litovsk treaty with Germany pulling Russia out of WWI, which Lenin had always opposed as a Capitalist/imperialist war. LENINS NEW ECONOMIC POLICY State controlled large industries and banks. Allowed small-scale capitalism. Individuals could buy and sell

goods for profit. Peasants controlled own plots of land and could sell surplus crops. Lenin saw this as a temporary retreat from Communism . Lenins reforms revived Russias economy. RUSSIA RENAMED THE UNION OF SOVIET SOCIALIST REPUBLICS

To keep nationalism in check, Lenin organized Soviet Union into smaller self-governing republics under the central governments control from new capital: Moscow. THE ONE-PARTY STATE OF THE USSR Bolsheviks rename their party the Communist Party Soviet Union was a one-party state with Communist Party

in complete control. This dictatorship of Communist Party was NOT the dictatorship of the proletariat envisioned by Karl Marx. LENINS DEATH Lenin suffered series of strokes and died in 1924. His death led to a power

struggle for control of the Communist Party and the country. Lenin wanted Trotsky, the Party chose Stalin. Lenins successor wasnt decided until 1928. BELIEVE IT OR NOT! Lenins embalmed corpse has been carefully preserved and has been on public display in

Moscows Red Square since his death in 1924. Lenins Tomb! Millions of people have visited Lenins tomb, waiting in long lines to view his body. Totalitarianism Under Stalin JOSEPH STALIN, MAN OF STEEL Stalin was cold, paranoid, ruthless, and ambitious.

Used his position as General Secretary to gain complete control of Communist Party. Named to succeed Lenin in 1928. Wasnt Lenins choice. Stalin is too rude and this defect, although quite

tolerable in our midst and in dealing among us Communists, becomes intolerable in a SecretaryGeneral. That is why I suggest the comrades think about a way of removing Stalin from that post Lenin and Stalin

Joseph Stalin, Vladimir Lenin, and LeonTrotsky LEON TROTSKY Bolshevik leader, Commander of the Red Army, Commissar of Foreign Affairs in new Soviet government. Lenins preferred choice as his successor.

Trotsky and Stalin became bitter rivals. What happened to Trotsky? Forced into exile in 1929 and, in 1940, was murdered in Mexico by agents of Stalin. Trotskys Deathbed The murder weapon

STALIN TAKES CONTROL Stalins focus wasnt on Lenins worldwide workers revolution. What was Stalins focus on? Making the Soviet Union a great power. How? Focused on military and

industrial development. Transformed the USSR into a totalitarian state to achieve his goals. WHAT IS TOTALITARIAN GOVERNMENT? Describes a government that takes total control over all aspects of public

and private life. Several totalitarian states emerge during the 20th century. Where? THE 20TH CENTURY TOTALITARIAN STATES EMERGE Soviet Union Nazi Germany
