Students read an account of the German Siege of Leningrad during World War 2 (WW2, WWII) and answer 6 questions. The last question has the students connect the siege and the Russians' memoirs to a current event. This is great for a sub and the answers are included where appropriate.
Sample questions include:
--Why was Hitler's decision to bypass Leningrad considered strategic?
--List at least 4 hardships faced by the Russians during this siege.
--Is cannibalism ever socially or morally understandable or acceptable? Explain your answer fully.
--How did people determined that life had become valuable again? Do you think that realization was a quick or lengthy process, explain your thinking.
