The tomb of Azerbaijan's first oil tycoon, Zeynalabdin Tagiyev, the illiterate son of a shoemaker who struck black gold here in the late 19th century. A great philanthropist, Tagiyev started the first secular school for girls in the Middle East, and was a pioneering champion of the arts.
.
Sadly, after the Soviet takeover of 1918, Tagiyev had all his wealth confiscated, and died destitute a few years later. His beloved wife, Sona, died homeless on the streets of Baku in 1934. A tragic end to the life of a man still widely revered here.

On this day in 1945, one of the most despicable examples of Soviet treachery – & Anglo-American acquiescence to that treachery – began.
.
The ‘Trial of the 16’ was a show trial of civil & military leaders of the anti-Nazi Polish Underground State [1-5]. Among these was the Home Army’s Commander-in-Chief Leopold Okulicki [6] & Warsaw-based Deputy PM Jan Stanisław Jankowski [7].
.
As representatives of a free & democratic Poland, they were kidnapped by the NKVD after being invited (with written guarantees of their safety) to join a ‘Polish Govt of National Unity’. They were transported to Moscow where physical torture & the ruining of their reputations awaited.
.
Upon finding out what had happened, the Polish Govt-in-Exile demanded that Washington & London help secure their release. True to form, the Soviets initially declared the whole affair a bluff by the ‘Fascist Polish govt’. On 5 May they finally confirmed the arrests but told President Harry Truman’s envoy that ‘there’s no point in linking the Trial of the 16 with the support for the Soviet-backed Polish govt because the sentences will not be high.’
.
Meanwhile at Lubyanka prison [8-9], the 16 leaders were subjected to months of brutal interrogation & torture, then presented with accusations of bogus crimes including planning a military alliance with Nazi Germany, ‘State terrorism’ & plotting war against the USSR.
.
The 3-day trial began on 18 June, with journalists & observers from the US & UK present. The date deliberately coincided with a conference on establishing the Soviet-backed Polish puppet govt. With most of the defendants coerced into pleading guilty, the verdict was a no-brainer: 12 of the 16 were sentenced to prison terms of up to 10 years, which some of them would not survive.
.
In ‘Europe at War’, Norman Davies described as ‘obscene’ the fact that there was no official protest abroad. The trial exterminated the true heirs to post-war Poland, & although its structures were soon rebuilt, it was never able to fully recover. On 6 July the UK & USA withdrew support for the Polish Govt-in-Exile, giving the Soviets a green light to intensify their repressions & secure control of eastern Europe [10].

Soviet bus stop. Советские остановки. Мой любимый атрибут этой неоднозночной исторической эпохи в Казахстане. Эти "вечные" остановки иногда единственное что до сих пор осталось от заброшенных совхозов в самых дальних уголках страны. Орнамент, национальные местные мотивы, иллюстрации из жизни простых сельчан, кажущиеся теперь наивными лозунги. Их до сих пор белят и обновляют цвета лепнины (иногда, правда, жутко неаккуратно). И сколько бы всего не несла та эпоха, строить тогда умели на века ). В Астане за 1 день урагана снесло крыши с десятка новых остановок, а эта стоит себе уже минимум лет 40. Угадайте, что изменилось в этой остановке после распада Советского союза?) Кстати, а вы знали что нейробиологи нашли физиологические различия в мозге людей с разными политическими взглядами? 🤔Часть из них генетически предопределена, часть образуется в ходе индивидуального развития.

“Beat the Whites with the Red Wedge” — some unusually abstract propaganda from the Bolsheviks. This famous poster was used throughout the civil war to illustrate the triumph of the Bolsheviks over the Whites. The artist was “El Lissitzky”, a leading member of the avant-garde in the early Soviet Union ————————————————————

Koridorid oli vanglas pikad ja kitsad. Vangide ülekuulamisele viimisel järgiti kindlaid reegleid, vahialune pidi hoidma käed seljal ja pea ettepoole maha kallutatud, kui koridoris tuli vastu teine vang, siis käsutati üks vangidest näoga seina äärde, et möödumisel vangid teineteist ei näeks. KGB vangikongide muuseum on avatud iga päev kell 10-18. // The prison corridors were long and narrow. When prisoners were being questioned, there were rigid rules to be followed. The prisoners had to hold their hands behind their backs and keep their heads down. If they were passing by another prisoner in the hall, one had to face the wall until the other passed so that they would not see each other. The museum of KGB Prison Cells is open daily 10-18. #kgbvangikongid #kgbprisoncells #sovietheritage #soviethistory

On this day in 1944, Russia penetrates into East Karelia, in Finland, as it fights to gain back control of territory that had already been ceded to it. According to the terms of the Treaty of Moscow of 1940, Finland was forced to surrender parts of its southeastern territory, including the Karelian Isthmus, to the Soviet Union, which was eager to create a buffer zone for Leningrad. To protect itself against further Russian encroachment, Finland allowed Germany to traverse its country in its push eastward into Russia, despite the fact that it did not have a formal alliance with the Axis power. Emboldened by the damage Germany was inflicting on Russia, Finland pursued the “War of Continuation” and won back large parts of the territory it had ceded to Moscow in the 1940 treaty.

But as Germany suffered setback after setback, and the Allies continued bombing runs in the Balkans, using Russia as part of its “shuttle” strategy, Finland began to panic and made overtures to Stalin about signing an armistice. By June 9, the Red Army was once again in the East Karelia, and Stalin was in no mood to negotiate, demanding at least a symbolic “surrender” of Finland entirely. Finland turned back to its “friend,” Germany, which promised continued support. A change in Finnish government resulted in a change in perspective, and Finland finally signed an armistice that gave Stalin what he wanted: all the old territory from the 1940 treaty and a guarantee that German troops would evacuate Finnish soil. Finland agreed but the German army refused to leave. Terrible battles were waged between the two behemoths; finally, with the defeat of the Axis, Russia got what it wanted, not only in Finnish territory, but also in war reparations to the tune of $300 million. Finland would become known for its passivity in the face of the Soviet threat in the postwar era. #thisdayinhistory #todayinhistory #onthisdayinhistory #history #historical #sovietunion #soviet #sovietrussia #soviethistory #russianhistory #russia #ussr #karelia #finland #finnish #finnishhistory #russian #ww2 #worldwar2 #ww2story #ww2history #worldwar2history #1944 #19391945

Yup, you guessed right - it's a period product! Worn underneath underwear, these 1980s rubber devices held an absorbent layer of cotton in place during menstruation. Anecdotal evidence suggests that period pads were a scarce commodity in USSR, which might why they are so difficult to find in the first place! 🔎

The House of Government: A Saga of the Russian Revolution by Yuri Slezkine (@princetonupress), shortlisted for the #pushkinprize2018. ⠀

Written in the tradition of Tolstoy's War and Peace, Grossman’s Life and Fate, and Solzhenitsyn’s The Gulag Archipelago, Yuri Slezkine tells the true story of the residents of an enormous Moscow apartment building where top Communist officials and their families lived before they were destroyed in Stalin’s purges.⠀

Completed in 1931, the House of Government, later known as the House on the Embankment, was located across the Moscow River from the Kremlin. The largest residential building in Europe, it combined 505 furnished apartments with public spaces that included everything from a movie theater and a library to a tennis court and a shooting range. Slezkine tells the chilling story of how the building’s residents lived in their apartments and ruled the Soviet state until some eight hundred of them were evicted from the House and led, one by one, to prison or their deaths.⠀

Drawing on letters, diaries, and interviews, and featuring hundreds of rare photographs, The House of Government weaves together biography, literary criticism, architectural history, and fascinating new theories of revolutions, millennial prophecies, and reigns of terror. The result is an unforgettable human saga of a building that, like the Soviet Union itself, became a haunted house, forever disturbed by the ghosts of the disappeared.⠀

Yuri Slezkine is the Jane K. Sather Professor of History at the University of California, Berkeley. His books include The Jewish Century (Princeton).⠀

📍MEET THE AUTHOR! On 6 June Yuri Slezkine will give an exclusive talk on 'The House of Government' at Pushkin House. Please BOOK TICKETS via the link in bio 👆

Day 3 of showcasing the #pushkinprize book covers before the winner is revealed on 7 June. Today we move on to 'The War Within: Diaries from the Siege of Leningrad' by Alexis Peri (@harvardpress). ⠀
In September 1941, two and a half months after the Nazis invaded the Soviet Union, the German Wehrmacht encircled Leningrad. Cut off from the rest of Russia, the city remained blockaded for 872 days, at a cost of almost a million civilian lives, making it one of the longest and deadliest sieges in modern history.⠀

‘The War Within’ chronicles the Leningrad blockade from the perspective of those who endured the unendurable. Drawing on 125 unpublished diaries written by individuals from all walks of Soviet life, Alexis Peri tells the tragic story of how citizens struggled to make sense of a world collapsing around them. Residents recorded in intimate detail the toll taken on minds and bodies by starvation, bombardment, and disease. For many, diary writing became instrumental to survival—a tangible reminder of their humanity. The journals also reveal that Leningraders began to reexamine Soviet life and ideology from new, often critical perspectives.⠀

Alexis Peri is Assistant Professor of History at @bostonu Boston University.⠀

With just 1 week to go until the unveiling of the 2018 winner of the 2018 Pushkin House Russian Book Prize we are going to treat you all to the six striking book covers on this year's shortlist - one a day. So, going in strict alphabetical order by author, we start with 'Armageddon and Paranoia: The Nuclear Confrontation' by Rodric Braithwaite (@profile.books). ⠀
In 1945, the atom bomb was dropped on Hiroshima and warfare was never the same again. Armageddon and Paranoia relates how the power of the atom was harnessed to produce weapons capable of destroying human civilisation and considers what this has done to the world.⠀

There are few villains in this story: on both sides of the Iron Curtain, dedicated scientists cracked the secrets of nature, dutiful military men planned out possible manoeuvres and politicians wrestled with potentially intolerable decisions. Patriotic citizens acquiesced to the idea that their country needed the ultimate means of defence.⠀

Some tried to grapple with the unanswerable question: what end could possibly be served by such fearsome means? Those who protested went unheard. None of them wanted to start a nuclear war, but all of them were paranoid about what the other side might do. The danger of annihilation by accident or misjudgement has not been entirely absent since. ⠀

Sir Rodric Braithwaite is a former British diplomat and author whose long Foreign Office career took him to Indonesia, Poland, Italy, America and Russia. He was British Ambassador in Moscow during the fall of the Soviet Union, which he described in Across the Moscow River (2002, Yale).⠀

📍MEET THE AUTHOR: On 4 June Rodric Braithwaite will give an exclusive talk on 'Armageddon and Paranoia' at Pushkin House. Tickets via link in bio 👆

Just released my first video! It's about the time Russia invaded Afghanistan. Afghanistan has been in turmoil for decades. It is a nation under constant threat of war and terrorism. This episode looks into the origins of this chaos: the Soviet-Afghan War. This was a conflict in which the the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan in hopes of establishing a friendly Communist regime. Did I mention that it's all done with stick figures? Watch it at Reen's Time Machine on YouTube or click the link in my bio.

Barbara Allen’s biography of Alexander Shlyapnikov was published in cloth by Brill in 2015 and by Haymarket Books in paperback in 2016. “Drawing on a vast body of previously untapped archival sources, including top secret FSB files, Barbara Allen presents a nuanced, insightful, and compelling portrait of the leading worker-Bolshevik, Alexander Shlyapnikov, and of the time in which he lived. Her highly readable study is vital for all those seriously interested in the Russian revolution and the fate of the Russian labor movement under Lenin and Stalin.” —Alexander Rabinowitch, The Bolsheviks Come to Power. "This biography of a Bolshevik worker–intellectual provides a vivid alternative to the common focus on the party’s best-known leaders, and insight into Bolshevik political culture, internal debates and all."
—China Miéville, October “Barbara Allen has given us a fascinating perspective on the Russian Revolution, showing its strengths and weaknesses through the remarkable but ultimately tragic story of a Bolshevik worker-intellectual."
—Ian Birchall, Revolutionary Socialism For the 21st Century.
