The Last Emperor of China, the Romanovs, Gandhi, and World War

The Last Emperor of China, the Romanovs, Gandhi, and World War


Society is never happy when the rich are very rich and the poor are very poor. We will explore the alarming story of the Romanovs, their dependence on the raving Rasputin who managed to outsmart his assassins several times, and their fall from power. With the removal of one government comes another and, in this case, it is Communism. In India, Gandhi leads through non-violence as India seeks freedom from England and the last emperor of China leaves the Forbidden City. The first World War floods the world with fear. We will study the Peace at Versailles and the League of Nations. The destiny of nations is guided by powerful people, both good and bad; students will learn about Woodrow Wilson, Mahatma Gandhi, Nicholas II and Alexandra of Russia, Rasputin, Joseph Stalin, and Vladimir Lenin, to name a few.
