  • Russia Plans Giant WW II Archive

    Russia announced plans to create the world’s largest archive of documents relating to World War II, known there as the Great Patriotic War. If all goes well, the archive may be open to historians in five years, in time for the war’s 70th anniversary. Here’s a link to an article outlining the project.

    Russia currently has the largest collection of documents relating to the Second World War, but they are scattered among a large number of different archives, are not always well-indexed, and access is spotty. This archive will index an estimated 13 billion documents with extensive internet access.

    Big, big news for the WW II historical community.
