Transcript of Vladimir Lenin
Vladimir Lenin teen
In January 1886 when Vladimir was 16 his father died of a brain haemorrhage. Vladimir's behavior became erratic and confrontational, and shortly thereafter he stopped believing in God. On 25 April 1887 Vladimir's elder brother Aleksandr "Sacha" Ulyanov was sentenced to death by hanging, and executed on 8 May. Despite the emotional trauma brought on by his father and brother's deaths, Vladimir continued studying, leaving school with a gold medal for his exceptional performance, and decided to study law at Kazan University.
Vladimir Ilich Ulianov, the architect and first head of the USSR, led the October Revolution, which was effectively a coup d'etat. Almost 3 years of civil war followed. The Bolsheviks were victorious and assumed total control of the country. During this period of revolution, war and famine, Lenin demonstrated a chilling disregard for the sufferings of his fellow countrymen and mercilessly crushed any opposition.
"The goal of socialism is communism."
"One man with a gun can control 100 without one."
"No amount of political freedom will satisfy the hungry masses."
Vladimir Lenin was born on April 22, 1870 inside of Simbirsk a city in Russia. His father Ilya Nikolayevich Ulyanov, was a university-educated civil servant, working as a government inspector of schools in the service of the Tsar, while his mother Maria was the daughter of a wealthy German doctor. They got married in the summer of 1863 and had 6 children(3 girls 4 boys) they would of have 7 but Nikolai died at infancy in 1873.

Lenin justified his violent seizure of power from the Provisional Government as merely a transfer of authority to the soviets, the popular councils elected by workers and soldiers that sprang up everywhere after the fall of the tsar. Lenin declared the formation of a Soviet government, withdrew Russia from World War I, and invited the peasants to take charge of the land that had formerly belonged to the nobles, state, and church.

Vladimir Lenin kid
As a kid Vladimir had an extremely competitive nature, he could be destructive, but usually admitted his misbehavior. A keen sportsman, he spent much of his free time outdoors or playing chess, and excelled at school, and went to study law at Saint Petersburg university in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
At the same time, Lenin's government quickly moved to shut down opposition political parties and to censor the press, introduced conscription for the Red Army, and requisitioned grain from the peasants in order to fight the bloody Russian Civil War of 1918–1920. In January 1918, Lenin closed down the Constituent Assembly after the Bolsheviks won only 24 percent of the popular vote. In 1918, Lenin renamed the Bolshevik Party as the Communist Party.
