Dr. Tamás Stark, a senior research fellow at the Institute of History, Research Centre for Humanities at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in Budapest, Hungary , will present his lecture titled, “Life in the Gulag: Forced Labor in the Soviet Union from Occupied Countries after WWII”.
Dr. Stark's academic specialization focuses on the forced population movement in East-Central Europe in the period of 1938-1956; special emphasis is with regard to the history of the Holocaust, the fate of prisoners of war and civilian internees, and the post-war migrations.
Human resources of the Soviet Union were nearly exhausted by the end of World War II. In this lecture, Dr. Stark will focus on how the Soviet Union addressed their depleted human labor resources while completing reconstruction work.
