AUGB TO SCREEN AWARD WINNING FILM, "THE SOVIET STORY"

15.05.09




The AUGB is to screen the recently released award-winning documentary film, "The Soviet Story".  It is to be shown in English with Ukrainian sub-titles.

The film features interviews with both western and Russian historians, such as Norman Davies and Boris Sokolov, Russian writer Viktor Suvorov, Soviet dissident Vladimir Bukovsky, members of the European Parliament and participants and victims of Soviet terror.

It argues that there were close philosophical, political and organizational connections between the Nazi and Soviet systems before and during the early stages of World War II. It highlights the Great Purge, the Holodomor, the Katyn massacre, Gestapo-NKVD collaboration, Soviet mass deportations and medical experiments in the GULAG.

In reviewing the film, The Economist concluded that the ""Soviet Story" is the most powerful antidote yet to the sanitisation of the past. The film is gripping, audacious and uncompromising...  The main aim of the film is to show the close connections—philosophical, political and organisational—between the Nazi and Soviet systems".
