“The Soviet Story” is a story of an Allied power, which slaughtered its own people on an industrial scale. Assisted by the West, this power triumphed on May 9th, 1945. Its crimes were made taboo, and the complete story of Europe’s most murderous regime has never been told. Until now…
The film tells the story of the Soviet regime.
– The Great Famine in Ukraine (1932/33)
– The Katyn massacre (1940)
– The SS-KGB partnership [in the late 1930s the KGB was called NKVD
– Soviet mass deportations
– Medical experiments in the GULAG.
These are just a few of the subjects covered in the film.
“The Soviet Story” also discusses the impact of the Soviet legacy on modern-day Europe. Listen to experts and European MPs discussing the implications of a selective attitude towards mass murder, and meet a woman describing the burial of her newborn son in a GULAG concentration camp.
The Soviet Story is a story of pain, injustice, and “realpolitik”.
