  1. Nelson Mandela changed the world because we wouldn’t know most of the people in our school. Mandela put a massive impact in the world. Look at how South Africa has tried to come to terms with the legacy of Apartheid. Rather than blame and punishment, it has tried to learn what has happened, and move onwardsMandela, on the other hand, inspired not so much by his speaking but by the quiet dignity of his struggle for his people’s freedom.

  2. I think nelson mandel had more impact because all the black people can get on the bus with the white people and we can now go places with black people and its not racist so the black people takeover the white people or white people takeover the black people this proves where the same only two diffrences the skin tone difference and personalty so this also tells not to judge people by there skin so that’s the reason I think nelson mandel made the biggest difference in the world today

    • Yes Nelson had a big impact on our lives but Winston was equally important. Your not wrong but think about the deed Winston Churchill did.

  3. Well good question actually, Winston Churchill and Mandela both made a huge impact in the world because… Winston Churchill and Mandela are different in many ways. Lets start with Mandela. If Mandela was never born all of the black people would be together and all of the white people would be together but Mandela changed the world out of its misery and put them both together as a family. Now to Churchill. If Churchill was never born we would all be speaking German and they would won the war but luckily thanks to Churchill he lead us to victory and saved the world. According to my opinion Churchill or Mandela can’t be judged they are both heroes in different ways. But they were both very brave and didn’t give up no matter what happened like the Germans almost took over the world but Churchill didn’t give up and we successfully won. Mandela didn’t like what was happening so he did everything he could to fix the sadness that came to the world even if it would take a couple of years in prison and guess what he didn’t do? GIVE UP!

  4. Winston Churchill and Nelson Mandela has an impact on the world because if Winston Churchill wasn’t alive we would be speaking German and German’s would of ruled the whole world but Winston Churchill didn’t let that happen… And nelson Mandela: If Nelson was never born all of the white people wouldn’t talk with black people but Nelson was born and stopped racism. In my opinion nelson and Winston can’t be judged. They both saved the world by Stopping racism and by stopping to speak German they will be remembered. They didn’t stop they never gave up would you of gave up?

  5. Without Nelson Mandela the black people of Southern Africa would still be living in fear. The Aparthied would have caught on the rest of Africa even the world. Black people of our nation could have mistreated to this day. So much damage could have been caused without Nelson Mandela. He deserves to be applauded right this moment.
    Winston Churchill was a great man. He lead us to victory during the war. He is truly inspirational and is a great role model to us all. Without him Germany would have beaten us and our lives would have been different to this day. We could be speaking German, eating German; women would have not gained the respect we deserved.
    Both of these leaders had a big impact on our lives.
    Do keep this in mind everything happens for a reason.
    Imagine if these leaders did not exist.

  6. Nelson Mandela

    Nelson Mandela and Winston Churchill. In my eyes Nelson Mandela made a very big impact on the earth or as we know it a dent in the universe. Nelson Mandela stopped the apartheid, before that the world was dominated by white people and he stopped that. Black people were ruled by white people. They will both will be remembered hugely for there actions.

  7. I have a counter argument for both candidates. Here they are:
    -Nelson Mandela-
    Nelson Mandela had a huge impact on our life’s today. If Nelson did not bring forth the courage that he did then today we may still be being ruled by a white man , white government and white demination. Nelson made his history by using his voice to stop the apartheid. Black people were mistreated and misunderstood and thanks to Nelson’s hard work we now life in world were all skin colours are just colour. Could you imagine a world where no black people went to school? No Gabriel and his dancing. Nelson Mandela changed our world.
    -Winston Churchill-
    Winston Churchill stopped Germans from taking over us. That might sound simple but if he hadn’t we could be living in a whole different world. Whilst World War 2 battered our soldiers Winston kept those at home strong. Kept them believing. Making sure they were safe from the blitz. Even offering to put his own life on the line just to prove how noble but heroic he was. Perhaps if we weren’t lead by Winston we would be living a whole different world. Thank you Winston for making a dent in our universe.
    I have no favouritism between these men I believe that both made and equal but huge impact on our lives . What about you what do you think?

  8. I believe they both made a massive impact on the world because if Winston Churchill wasn’t born we would probably all have German names and be speaking German as well. If we didn’t have Nelson Mandela white people would still be ruling over black people and people with different skin colours wouldn’t be talking to each other . Also the apartheid would still be happening. He was a very kind man as well as spending 27 years in prison to help us

  9. I personally believe that Nelson Mandela has made a bigger impact on the world. If he hadn’t of decided to step up and say that it wasn’t right, that white people got more opportunities than black people, it would be exactly the same today. However, if Winston Churchill hadn’t of did what he did, we would be on rations and as quiet as a mouse. They are both very important people and the world should how respect to tem.

  10. What a great question, they both made an incredible impact on the world and. How you ask? Churchill Churchill took the lead in warning about Nazi Germany and in campaigning for rearmament. At the outbreak of the Second World War, he was again appointed First Lord of the Admiralty. Following the resignation of Neville Chamberlain on 10 May 1940, Churchill became Prime Minister. His steadfast refusal to consider surrender helped inspire British resistance, especially during the difficult early days of the war when the British Commonwealth and Empire stood alone in its active opposition to Adolf Hitler. Churchill was particularly noted for his speeches and radio broadcasts, which helped inspire the British people. He led Britain as Prime Minister until victory over Nazi Germany had been secured.
    After the Conservative Party lost the 1945 election, he became Leader of the Opposition to the Labour Government. He publicly warned of an “Iron Curtain” of Soviet influence in Europe and promoted European unity. After winning the 1951 election, Churchill again became Prime Minister. His second term was preoccupied by foreign affairs, including the Malayan Emergency, Mau Mau Uprising, Korean War, and UK-backed coup d’état in Iran. Domestically his government laid great emphasis on house-building, and introduced safety and sanitation regulations for housing and workplaces. Churchill suffered a serious stroke in 1953 and retired as Prime Minister in 1955, although he remained a Member of Parliament until 1964. Upon his death aged ninety in 1965, Elizabeth II granted him the honour of a state funeral, which saw one of the largest assemblies of world statesmen in history.[1] Named the Greatest Briton of all time in a 2002 poll, Churchill is widely regarded as being among the most influential people in British history, consistently ranking well in opinion polls of Prime Ministers of the United Kingdom.
    Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela ;18 July 1918 – 5 December 2013) was a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary, politician, and philanthropist who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. He was the country’s first black chief executive, and the first elected in a fully representative democratic election. His government focused on dismantling the legacy of apartheid through tackling institutionalised racism and fostering racial reconciliation. Politically an African nationalist and democratic socialist, he served as President of the African National Congress (ANC) party from 1991 to 1997. Internationally, Mandela was Secretary General of the Non-Aligned Movement from 1998 to 1999.
    I’m sorry but in my eyes it has to be Mandela. He saved us from a world of stress and anger. I thank you Sir Nelson Rolilahla Mandela.
