I have three boxes of Russian/Soviet History and Railroad/Transportation books that are free to a good home (you pay postage). My preference is not to break boxes, but I certainly can send boxes to different people (I know that the topics are rather diverse).

I was wondering if someone could give me some advice on getting someone to transcribe (not translate) a file from the Russian State Historical Archive and how much it would cost (or put me in touch with some people who may be able to help - my email address is at the end of this post) nbsp; All I'd need is a Word file, in Russian, with the documents copied out with page numbers and information who each file/letter is to and from.

Beyond camps and forced labour: current international research on survivors of Nazi persecution
Fifth international multidisciplinary conference, to be held at Imperial War Museum London, 7-9 January 2015
This conference is planned as a follow-up to the four successful conferences, which took place at Imperial War Museum London in 2003, 2006, 2009 and 2012. It will continue to build on areas previously investigated, and also open up new fields of academic enquiry.
A graduate student of mine is working on party-peasant realtions in Communist Poland. She is interested in the concept of trust - zaufanie - which is frequently expressed as something the Party or its leaders enjoy. I began to wonder whether the term also has a Leninist component, in which the trust is enjoyed or conferred not between individuals and masses, but is conferred by the working class on its representatives. This sounds right to me, but I can't put my finger on it. Is doverie a concept that operates in Lenin's thought - and if so, where?
