This DVD tied in beautifully with our history studies, as we are currently learning about the WWII and post WWII time periods. It also complimented our current year debate topic of Russia. As a follow-up we viewed The Singing Revolution, loved it!
This is extremely well produced and tells an important story about how entrepreneurial freedom is related to free market practices.
Great video to show the transition a country goes through when moving from a centrally planned economy towards a free market economy. It uses personal testimonials to show the difference that freedom can make to encourage a nation to grow and innovate.
Thank you for providing a current look at life after the fall of communism and the break-up of the Soviet Union. It helps so much in teaching about communism to be able to contrast it with a real life story.

My students were fascinated by the idea of communism vs. a free trade society in new ways because of this video presentation. It pricked their interest in entreprenuership and gave lots of opportunity to point out the founding of America's economy and how we are doing economically at present. We had lots of good discussion about inflation and government regulations. It was easy to engage their prior knowledge about America's fight for freedom from England and connect that to Estonia's freedom from the USSR. We really had fun!
