PD Dr. Andrea Hilger, German Historical Institute Moscow

The research and documentation project "Soviet and German prisoners of war and internees" was initiated on 22 June 2016 on the basis of a joint declaration by the foreign ministers of Germany and Russia, Frank-Walter Steinmeier and Sergey Lavrov. The project aims to resolve the fates of Soviet and German Second World War prisoners of war and internees. Within the scope of this project, all archive material that contains information about the fates of prisoners of war and internees will be examined, digitalized and then entered into databases which will subsequently be accessible to the public.
The presentation of this project will be in English. It will be followed by a presentation by the "Soviet Past Research Laboratory" (SovLab) about their research on prisoners of war in and from Georgia.
