  • Industry evacuation in 1941

    Does anyone know of a source in English for dates and effectiveness (ie % totals) of the industry evacuations from hte Western USSR in 1941?

    I'm looking for info such as when the evacuations started from each city, how much of the heavy/light industry was successfully gotten away, where it went to and when it started workign again.

    Unfortunately I dont read Russian - although I might possibly be able to get a translation - si ideally it would be online and in English. But anything would be a start.

    I've found snippets on teh web - on the Russian battlefield page for the T-60 for exzample there is info on a factory from Kharkov, on Wikipedia there are little snippets too.

    I understand there is a book on the Geography of Russian industry dated 1937 for which there are English translations around fairly cheap, so that will provide me with a base-line level.

    thanks

    Mike

          Mike,
          I don't think I can be much useful here, as it's not my field.
          I have one, or two books about economic and Military industry of the USSR. But they are in Russian of course...
          And I myself have absolutely no time to analyse and translate their info...

          Regards,
          Alex

            It is a link to quite good article, but I cannot paste it as link, do not know why. Found it with yandex.ru. Deleting is impossible too, no such button.

                Something you may find interesting

                I have read in a number of books that when the factories indicated were moved, they did so in stages. That is, when the beginning of the assembly line completed their raw product, it would leave, followed be the completion of the second set of completed line units etc. This meant that by the time that the entire factory moved, the first part of the line was already in production resulting in a minimum of production loss. Very smart and creative system. If I recall correctly, Zalogas' book on "Soviet Tanks of WWII" contains a map displaying the location of many factories that re-located.
