Eh, I'm just trying to help out. Please feel free to add any suggestions.

Section A

Possible answers:
  • He made an ultimatum...
  • He demanded direct discussions about Berlin
  • Anything else that was relevant to the source material

2) Outlining steps about Khrushchev's action for Berlin in 1960-61 | 4 marks

Possible answers:
  • Berlin wall construction...
  • Second ultimatum...
  • Secret police/police in Berlin???

3) Comparing sources question | 10 marks

Use Nature, Origin, Purpose (NOP)

Source B was a cartoon from US newspaper in 1968. It had the caption "She might have invaded the USSR" (referring to the woman in the picture who represented freedom)

Source C was an extract from Dubcek's autobiography which talked about Brezhnev's threatening behaviour in a meeting with him and other leaders about Dubcek's leadership of Czechoslovakia

Possible answers:
Source B
  • Nature of B: Cartoon in a newspaper... not serious?
  • Origins of B: United States newspaper... biased against Soviet Union/USSR
  • Purpose of B: Portray Brezhnev and USSR in a negative manner... aggression, controlling...

Source C
  • Nature of C: Autobiography... serious etc...
  • Origins of B: Dubcek, Czechoslovakian leader who was in USSR so likely to be reliable because he's portraying USSR in negative light but he was in it so not really biased
  • Purpose of C: Inform you about his experiences with Brezhnev

Section B

4a) or 4b) choice

4) a) Key features of Yalta Conference | 6 marks
Possible answers:
  • Germany when defeated, would be reduced in size, demilitarised and would have to pay reparations
  • Plans to divide Germany started
  • Nazi Party would be banned
  • USSR would declare war on Japan (three months after Germany defeat)
  • United Nations would be set up and replace League of Nations
  • Poland should be in the Soviet 'sphere of influence' but be run democratically


4) b) Key features of Helsinki Agreements | 6 marks
Possible answers:

Spoiler:
Show



1) Security
  • Country boundaries accepted
  • Disputes settled peacefully
  • No country interfere in internal affairs of another country
  • Countries inform each other about big military manoeuvres and representatives from other countries observe them

2) Co-operation
  • economic co-operation through trade
  • industrial co-operation
  • scientific co operation
  • educational co operation

3) Human rights

Question 5 and 6 are kind of ambiguous and depend on what you write so I'm finishing the markscheme here.

Thanks, these answers look very promising. Which event did you miss out on for the 15 marker? I skipped the INF Treaty

And what event did you do for the 13 marker? I chose to do the Hungarian Uprising and linked it to De-stalinisation.

I thought the paper was okay, but the 13marker had a small date range. Q.2 was a wired one, but I put the answers that was in your unoffical mark scheme. Now I have to make up for the grade in the Germany and Britain paper

In my opinion, I think there are quite a few things you could have talked about in the years 1949-1956:
-The Berlin Blockade + Berlin Airlift
-Formation of Warsaw Pact
-Formation of NATO
-Comecon
-Arms Race
-The death of Stalin + Secret Speech
-Hungarian Uprising

I spoke about NATO, the Warsaw Pact and the Berlin airlift, but I don't know if my responses were good enough
