Abstract

Welche außenpolitischen Ziele verfolgte Stalin im Sommer 1939? Welche Absichten standen hinter dem deutsch-sowjetischen Nichtangriffsvertrag? Wie wollte der Diktator die Sowjetunion in jenem Weltkrieg positionieren, der sich damals abzuzeichnen begann? Über diese zentralen Fragen der sowjetischen Zeitgeschichte wird noch immer debattiert. Sicher ist nur, daß sie sich weder mit Legenden noch mit Fälschungen beantworten lassen. /// For the past 65 years, a speech that Stalin allegedly gave at a secret politburo session on the eve of World War II has repeatedly caught the attention of historians. It is believed that in this speech, the Soviet dictator explained his motives for the pact of non-aggression with Hitler in detail. According to a French news agency Stalin claimed the following: not only did the German-Soviet treaty allow a German attack against Poland, but it would also draw the whole of Europe into a long war and thereby create an opportunity for a Communist revolution on the whole continent. If this was true, Hitler and Stalin would share the responsibility for the unleashing of the Second World War. On the other hand, an article by Eberhard Jäckel in the Vierteljahrshefte für Zeitgeschichte revealed this document to be a fake as early as 1958. Recently, new findings in Russian archives have raised speculations anew. The author disproves such allegations and reveals the motives behind such deliberate historical misrepresentations.
