Violence against civilians on the Eastern front of WWI

International workshop 16th-17th April in Paris…Violence against civilians on the Eastern front of WWI

The workshop is a German-French-Russian-Ukrainian cooperation, which combines new perspectives on civilian victims of World War II in the Soviet Union. This includes as well victims of Stalinism as victims of crimes under Nazi-occupation. Moreover, another focus of the workshop involves the dealing with civilian victims in postwar trials inside the Soviet Union and in the West and their representation as witnesses. Not least the general question of new archival resources about civilian victims, as e.g. the now for researchers available collections of the former KGB-archives in Ukraine, are discussed.
