Many Sides to Winston Churchill – level 2

07-02-2022 15:00

In WWII, Winston Churchill was the Prime Minister of the UK. Many people remember how he helped defend against the Nazi attacks.

However, others remember him for how he did not help with a food crisis in India when 3 million Indians died. This was when India was in the British Empire. Some people say that he believed that Indians, working people and women were less than other people.

It is also true that many people feel good about him because, thanks to him, many people are not living in a dictatorship, and they can think and say what they want.

Difficult words: defend (protect), dictatorship (a government that does not let its people think or say what they choose).
