Many Sides to Winston Churchill – level 1

07-02-2022 15:00

In World War II, Winston Churchill is a leader of the UK. Now many people remember his role in the war against the Nazis.

However, other people remember how he did not help the Indian people. India is a part of the British Empire in the 1930s. Then Indian people do not have food. Many people die.

Some people say that Churchill does not think good about Indians, people who work or women. However, many people think that he is a good leader because now many of live in free countries.

Difficult words: British Empire (when the UK was the leader of many countries all over the world), leader (the boss of a country).
