This is a story of an Allied power, which helped the Nazis to fight Jews and which slaughtered its own people on an industrial scale. Assisted by the West, this power triumphed on May 9th, 1945. Its crimes were made taboo, and the complete story of Europe's most murderous regime has never been told. Until now? Filmed over two years and researched over ten, Film-maker Edvins Snore presents a truly unique insight into recent Soviet history. Drawing on interviews with experts and testimonies from witnesses and victims who experienced the terror first hand, The Soviet Story gives voice to those whose suffering was covered up and examines the legacy for modern day Europe. This investigation deals with the SS-KGB partnership, the Great Famine of Ukraine and the Katyn massacre, and visits the Magadan Death Camp in Siberia where the KGB carried out experiments on prisoners. Furthermore, The Soviet Story presents for the first time Nazi footage showing Soviets helping Hitler launch WW2 and features photographs never before seen in public, taken by Heinrich Hoffmann, Hitler's personal photographer. The Soviet Story ? now suppressed for over 60 years ? is one of pain, injustice and realpolitik.
