Book chapter

The Intelligentsia Meets the Enemy: Educated Soviet Officers in Defeated Germany, 1945

P. 176-227.

Oleg Budnitskii examines what informed members of the Soviet intelligentsia experienced in Germany from 1944 to 1946. Aside from some contemporaneous accounts, he mainly bases himself on memoirs. Most of these were published only after 1990, so they were no longer held to the triumphalist official line of the late-Soviet era. Accordingly, they could address ambigious and unpleasant experiences.
