The Red Army and the Holocaust 1939–1948

 

MAJSTOROVICThis project examines the Soviet army’s encounter with the Shoah during and after the Second World War in the western Soviet Union, the Balkans, and East-Central Europe. The study illuminates the Red Army’s policies towards perpetrators, survivors, and their property, the military’s official line about the Holocaust, the use of Nazi crimes against Jews in Soviet war propaganda, the troops’ attitudes to the genocide, and interactions between Jewish survivors and Soviet soldiers. Ultimately, the project aims to illuminate how the Red Army ended the Holocaust on the Eastern Front, and what the Soviet victory meant for survivors, perpetrators, and liberators.
