Drawing on archival discoveries in the former Soviet and Western archives, this presentation by Yaakov Falkov focuses on the Soviet intelligence community’s efforts to discover the extent and patterns of the mass extermination of Jews from 1941 onwards, first on Soviet soil and then throughout Europe, and to place these discoveries in the service of the Kremlin’s domestic and foreign policies. This heretofore little-studied subject enhances our understanding of the Soviet reaction to the Shoah (Holocaust) and the inner workings of the Soviet secret services.

Falkov is a lecturer at Tel Aviv and Reichman universities. The moderator is Maxim D. Shrayer, a professor of Russian, English and Jewish studies at Boston College and the chair of the Seminar on Russian and Eurasian Jewry at the Davis Center.

Part of the Seminar on Russian and Eurasian Jewry, this event is co-sponsored by the Center for Jewish Studies and the Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies at Harvard.
