Aggregate Treason: A Quantitative Analysis of Collaborator Trials in Soviet Ukraine and Crimea

The Soviet and Post-Soviet Review. 2019. Vol. 46. No. 1. P. 30-54.

This article is an analysis of metadata from 955 closed trials of Soviet people accused of being collaborators during World War II. The trials reveal Soviet officials' understandings of who was capable of collaboration and what kinds of acts were collaboration. At the same time, the aggregate data from trials demonstrates that the accusations were grounded in the realities of the war and were not falsifications like the investigations of the Great Terror in the 1930s.
