Collectivization of Agriculture in West Ukraine and OUN-UPA Resistance, 1944-1950

Description: CIUS Seminar Audio Part 1 and 2.

The first Institute seminar of the 1978-79 academic year at the University of Alberta was held on October 17. David R. Marples, doctoral candidate in the Department of History at the University of Alberta, spoke on "Collectivization of Agriculture in West Ukraine and OUN-UPA Resistance, 1944-1950." Having outlined the Soviet achievements in collectivization in 1939-1941, the speaker examined the effects of World War II on West Ukrainian agriculture. The land was redistributed and zemelni hromady were formed. As a result of the OUN-UPA resistance, Soviet military forces and cadres were brought in from the east. The speaker discussed UPA attacks in detail and the concomitant political changes in each oblast.
