True Believers? The Nature of Collaboration and Opposition in Communist regimes

Wednesday, October 8 at 5PM
Room 232, Leacock Building
855 Sherbrooke Street West

Lecturer: Anne Applebaum

At the end of the Second World War, the Soviet Union unexpectedly found itself in control of a huge swath of territory in Eastern Europe. Stalin and his secret police set out to convert a dozen radically different countries to a completely new political and moral system: communism. Hear Anne Applebaum describe how the Communist regimes of Eastern Europe were created and what daily life was like once they were complete.
