Summary:
The collection is comprised of 9283 digital copies of Situation Reports (SRs) released from 1959 through 1989. Developed and published by Radio Free Europe (RFE), the Reports are based upon extensive monitoring of Soviet bloc newspapers (as well as other media) and independent journalistic research conducted by RFE staff members. SRs were disseminated in print both internally and externally. Presented as updates on current developments in a news format with limited editorial commentary, SRs address a wide range of topics, including political economy, international relations, and everyday life in Communist Central and Eastern Europe. In certain years, reports contained lists (with brief explanations) of “Agreements Signed,” the “Comings and Goings” of political and religious leaders as well as envoys from both eastern and western countries, and “Miscellaneous” news items.
