Smart Histories: Compelling Stories of Russian History hosts 36 short videos on Russian history from prehistoric times to the present. Each major era of Russian history includes a transcript of the short video, as well as a Pinterest site with related images, and music from each period. These pages also incorporate additional videos that run from 4 minutes (Lenin’s New Economic policy) to 95 minutes (Ivan the Terrible). Instructors should review resources prior to assignment, as some contain graphic and violent historical material.
