The Soviet Story

Recommended Posts

Är det någon som sett filmen "The Soviet Story"?


Tycker den verkar intressant.


The film tells the story of the Soviet regime.


- The Great Famine in Ukraine (1932/33)

- The Katyn massacre (1940)

- The SS-KGB partnership [in the late 1930s the KGB was called NKVD, more info>]

- Soviet mass deportations

- Medical experiments in the GULAG.


These are just a few of the subjects covered in the film.


“The Soviet Story” also discusses the impact of the Soviet legacy on modern day Europe. Listen to experts and European MPs discussing the implications of a selective attitude towards mass murder; and meet a woman describing the burial of her new born son in a GULAG concentration camp.

The Soviet Story is a story of pain, injustice and “realpolitik”.

Nej, men den är säkert sevärd. Filmaren är väl inget jättenamn och han har väl således inte fått med någon av de riktigt tunga experterna eller sovjetologrna, men slutsatserna blir nog desamma i alla fall.


Vill man läsa om sovjetstatens terror och mord av sin egen befolkning brukar Robert Conquests "Harvest of sorrow" anges som standardverk på grundläggande akademisk nivå. Rekommenderas.
