A popular oral history project, the Radio Liberty project, 1964 – 1966, was recently opened for public listening.* From the catalog record:
In anticipation of the 50th anniversary of the Russian Revolution, Radio Liberty and the Institute for the Study of the Union of the Soviet Socialist Republics in Munich collected memoirs of participants in the events of 1917. The material presents a broad political, social, economic and cultural panorama of Russia at that time.
