Quotes & Speeches
The family of Sir Winston Churchill has put one of his most famous speeches online in a project to bring new technology to history lessons. A new website combines the full audio recording of Sir Winston’s “Sinews of Peace” speech of 1946–also known as the “Iron Curtain” speech because Churchill used the phrase to describe the barrier enclosing the Soviet sphere of Europe–with his annotated transcript, background information and interpretation, maps and photographs. It breaks the 45-minute speech into themes and interprets them against both events of the time and their relevance today.
