Narodno-Trudovoj Sojuz papers

Call Number: MS 608
Scope and Contents

This collection contains numerous pamphlets and brochures published by Possev [The Sowing], a Russian anti-communist weekly, which works in close touch with the NTS. Possev prints practically all of the NTS publications, a percentage of which are produced on special thin paper for circulation and distribution to Soviet citizens. The brochures and pamphlets in this collection are arranged alphabetically by author and by title when there is no author indicated. There are 99 leaflets included here; some are the sample copies of the type that were circulated inside the USSR.

There are also numerous folders of camouflage publications: i.e., numerous works that were produced under the cover of harmless titles of known literary works. A few contained in this collection were simply camouflaged as Soviet works. They are arranged alphabetically by author of the literary work with the anti-communist publication in parentheses. There are some false numbers of Soviet daily papers which were circulated with the contents entirely drafted by the NTS propaganda service. All the material contained within this collection is in Russian except three folders of NTS marerial in English and one folder of NTS material in German.
