CfP: Prisoners of War. Russian and Soviet Experiences in the 20th Century

Mon, 11/18/2019 - 11:21

War captivity was an important experience for military personnel in the Tsarist Empire and the Soviet Union, affecting several million people (not only, but predominantly male). Conceptions of war captivity were often passed on from fathers to sons. Although the conditions in the various wars undoubtedly differed, as is well documented in research, there were also connecting experiences shared by the soldiers and officers captured in war. The conference aims at tracing this overarching experience of captivity and its significance for Russian and Soviet history in the 20th century.
