Brothers and Sisters! Radio Address by Iosif Stalin (July 3, 1941)
Iosif Stalin
Description: These opening excerpts from Stalin’s famous speech of July, 1941 were the first words that Soviet citizens heard from their leader after the crushing first weeks of the war. Stalin effectively rallied his fellow citizens by using an entirely new language of Soviet rule, informal and intimate. He defended the decision to sign the pact with Germany. Includes call for a vast partisan movement in enemy rear.
