Series Description

Historical survey hosted by Abram Sachar, Brandeis University. Series release date: 1973

Program Description

“Lenin’s years of power ranged only from 1917 to 1922 when a stroke virtually incapacitated him. In this five year period, by unmatched resourcefulness and ruthlessness that rivaled any in history, he warded off powerful external enemies, eliminated international opposition, and laid the foundations for the Communist world. He abolished God and Bible but, since his death, he has been more venerated than God, and his writings have achieved a power far beyond the reverence ever extended to sacred writings of Christendom.”
