Abstract: In this talk, Professor Barshay will speak about the approximately 600,000 Japanese captured during the Soviet invasion of Manchuria and Korea in August of 1945. The Soviets made efforts to indoctrinate them in the following years. While some Japanese resisted, others cooperated and became a strong radicalizing influence in postwar Japanese society after their repatriation, as can be seen in the labor movement. Professor Barshay will draw conclusions about the influence of this collective memory in Japan on Japan-USSR state to state relations.
