HIST 242: Communism, Cold War, Collapse: Russia Since Stalin
A collection of digital facsimiles of transcripts of interviews conducted with Soviet émigrés to West Germany, Austria, and the United States, in 1950 and 1951. The transcripts are in English, and focus on life in the Soviet Union between 1917 to 1939, but there are also a lot of accounts of life during the revolution. All of the interviews were conducted in the person's native language, but the interviews were translated, on the fly, into English.
