How Long Could You Survive On Only a Pound of Bread Per Day?


The Siege of Leningrad has become a symbol of the endurance of the Soviet people. They were fully surrounded by Nazi forces in 1941 when the city's last road connection was severed. After 872 days of bombings, starvation, and extreme cold, the siege was finally lifted, but up to 1.5 million lives were lost. People trapped in the city had to live off of one pound of bread per day. Can you imagine that?

  • Long queues at Beirut bakeries as Lebanon bread crisis continues

    Long lines form in front of bakeries and supermarkets in the Lebanese capital Beirut, where people wait hours for a bag of subsidised Arabic bread -- in short supply as a years-long economic crisis depletes state coffers. Lebanon's parliament approved a $150 million World Bank loan to import wheat, as shortages of subsidised bread intensify in the cash-strapped country, according to local media.
