Julie deGraffenried: Never Forget: The Uses of Childhood Trauma in the Soviet Union (IAS Thursdays)

10/4/18, 3:30 PM

About this event

Children in the Soviet Union suffered horribly during World War II. Conditions created by an invading enemy and policy decisions by state authorities contributed to traumatic experiences for the young, experiences that were captured in officially-sanctioned images and narratives during the war. This talk will describe typical childhood trauma in the wartime USSR, offer examples of Soviet images that depicted children in wartime, and explore ways in which state authorities used these representations of children’s suffering for audiences young and old, during and after the war.

Cosponsored by the Department of German, Nordic, Slavic and Dutch, the Institute of Child Development, the Department of History, and the Immigration History Research Center.
