Imminent closure of Alexander Yakovlev Foundation in Moscow

Social and Labour History News - Sat, 2018-06-09 09:50

From Dina Fainberg' Facebook page:

Today I visited the Alexander Yakovlev Foundation in Moscow and they confirmed the sad news about their imminent closure. I also learned that they need help.

For those who don’t know, one of the missions of the foundation was preserving Soviet history, declassifying historical documents, and making them accessible to the public and scholars. Over the years, the foundation was the leading publisher of declassified documents from the Russian archives, best known for its flagship series Россия ХХ Век.

HOW CAN WE HELP?

Die Geschichte der Arbeiterbewegung während des Ersten Weltkriegs und der ersten Jahre der Weimarer Republik wird oft in einfacher Gegenüberstellung von Mehrheitssozialdemokratie, Unabhängiger Sozialdemokratie und sich gründender Kommunistischer Partei erzählt.

Uli Schoeler und Thilo Scholle durchbrechen mit ihrem Buch diese allzu schlichte Darstellung. Sie zeigen, welche Debatten es zwischen, vor allem aber auch innerhalb der Parteien gegeben hat.
