Analysis of the lives of Kliuchevskii’s students will illustrate changing Soviet policies toward history and historians and demonstrate how these men survived the constraints and torments all scholars endured under Stalin, while preserving and advancing to the first generations of Soviet historians Kliuchevskii’s principles and approach to history.
