This is a 24 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on World War II - Eastern Front - Siege of Leningrad. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The Siege of Leningrad, also known as the Leningrad Blockade was a prolonged military operation undertaken by the German Army Group North against Leningrad, historically and currently known as Saint Petersburg, in the Eastern Front theatre of World War II.
The siege started on 8 September 1941, when the last road to the city was severed. The siege was finally lifted on 27 January 1944, 872 days after it began. The siege was one of the longest and most destructive sieges in history and overwhelmingly the most costly in terms of casualties.
In the end, the best thing the population of Leningrad could do is survive. Leningrad was finally freed when the Germans had to retreat as part of a general retreat from the regrouped Red Army. Then came one of the big ironies of war, those that led the city during the siege were promptly arrested by the KGB after the city was freed.
Their crime was that they didn’t contact Moscow often enough while the siege was in progress. The fact that they didn’t ask for orders and support frequently enough and their policy of acting alone couldn’t be tolerated! After leading the city for 900 days of horror they weren’t celebrated as heroes, they were arrested to be interrogated and punished by the KGB.
The presentation covers the following:
