Stalin wasn’t stallin’: How much can a song reveal about who really won WW2?

Stalin wasn't stallinWho really won WW2? Over the past two or three decades Hollywood has led us to believe it is the Americans. However, a song from 1943 seems to give a different view. It is all the more surprising that this song was made in the USA.

Can you students work out what it’s message is? Having done this, they will compare it to their new contextual knowledge to work out why it says what it says.

Then they will  then look at a modern international survey about who won WW2?

Can they explain why people in different countries think so differently? This will allow your students to consider why people look at the same event and hold such different interpretations about it.
