Transformations of Soviet cultural policies after the Israeli Six-Day War: analysing historical conceptions and studying new sources.
The study observes the impact of the Israeli Six-Day war on the Soviet cultural policy. I reconstruct the internal policy of the USSR in relation to the so-called "Jewish question" and the cultural relations between the USSR and Israel to understand what kind of transformations occurred after the breaking of diplomatic relations between Israel and the USSR in 1967. I also analyze the narrative of this war, produced by Jewish authors, the activists of the Jewish movement between the Soviet Jews, as it highlights and sometimes hyperbolize the most crucial aspects of the cultural significance of the Six-Day war.
