Siegelbaum Publishes Article

Lewis Siegelbaum has published “The ‘Flood’ of 1945: Regimes and Repertoires of Migration in the Soviet Union at War’s End,” in Social History, no. 1 (2017): 52-72  ( . The article builds on the metaphor of the “flood” employed by the pioneering demographer Eugene Kulischer to analyze the range of Soviet citizens’ migratory movements within and back to the USSR in 1945. It pays special attention to settlers, deportees, returning evacuees, repatriates, demobilized soldiers and itinerants, and argues that not only did these different groups of migrants appear simultaneously, but each produced the other.
