Hi guys so basically this is my first go at this and I did it in 5 minutes :
||02|| Study Source B in the Sources Booklet. Give two things you can infer about the Yalta conference in 1945 from the source. Explain your answer using Source A and your contextual knowledge. [the source was the one from the Yalta conference were Stalin, Roosevelt and Churchill were sat and laughing while slightly hunched backed.
[4 marks]

From this source we can clearly infer that ‘the big three’, Stalin, Roosevelt and Churchill share not only a common enemy of Germany but also share a sort of friendship. the fact that they are all smiling and leaned forward suggest that they are comfortable around each other and that they all have common similarities from the war. Here Roosevelt is old and as he suffers from polio they all are sat down for the photo. In this conference they agree Germany will pay a large fee for there war troubles and that they will be split into four sectors, one for the English, one for the French, the Americans and the USSR.
Please can you guys roast it as hard as you can so that I can see what I need to improve on and I KNOW i need to improve it. Thank You xxx

Begins fine, goes downhill. The second half of your paragraph you're either just describing the photo or the Yalta conference.
This photo was just for publicity really. But if that's not mentioned in the question then it's not that important to mention here.

This is basically irrelevant to the question. No way are you inferring that from the photograph.

You did start off well, identifying what it's meant to show (but remember, meant to show). Best to use phrases like "gives the impression" or "suggests" because 1. this is just what's being inferred from the photograph and 2. Churchill and Stalin really weren't mates.

So what's trying to be accomplished with this photo? How would someone seeing this for the first time think?
Well, they do want to give the impression that they're all friends and that this alliance against Nazi Germany is a good thing. I mean, Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin sitting next to each other would have been pretty inconceivable a decade before. It looks like diplomatic relations are set to improve as a result as well. Buuuuuuut, this is where you would use your own contextual knowledge to shine some light on that idea. Were they really friends, etc etc.

Do you have Source A available?
