Living Standards, Norms and Values of Various Groups of Soviet People in the 1920s and 1930s

This collection contains archival material that was declassified in 1993. The contents of the materials provide an insight into the socialist society of the USSR in the 1920s and 1930s. It provides answers to questions on the cultural and political interest and economic situation of the ordinary soviet citizen within that period. How much money did a Soviet engineer earn? Did every student read Marx and own a radio? Could an average family spend enough money on food? How active were soviet citizens in socialist political movements? The collection of RGAE (fond 1562) consists of 57 files (delo's) on 27,584 pages.

1141 microfiches

A finding guide to the collection is in the Microtext Reading Room under the call number Z2519.E93 2001 (LC)+.
