Soviet Samizdat in the Radio Liberty

Those disagreeing with and protesting against the lawlesness in the Soviet Union presented their cases in the Russian language sound samizdat series of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty between 1970 and 1989. In these radio programs exceptionally brave civilians, scientists, writers, clerical leaders living under immense political pressure in the Soviet Union relate how political prisoners live in forced labor camps, dissidents are locked up in psychiatric hospitals and Jews and Catholics wishing to practice their religion are repressed. These radio broadcast materials from Munich are an exciting counter point to contemporary official Soviet propaganda press.
