The thesis is devoted to the problem of resettlement of residents of Mologa and Mologsky district of the Yaroslavl region during the period of 1936-1941, and is based on an analysis of the relationship between the state and local residents. This work aims to detect and evaluate the presented events through the prism of human reactions to these developments and relations between town residents and the state, directly arising as a result of this. The subsequent reception of the people’s relocation and flooding in the local historical memory follow on. The following part consists of presentation of, on the basis of local sources, the contextual component of locals’ resettlement issues, as well as the phenomena that have arisen in this regard against the general background of the USSR’s internal policy during the period under review. The author reveals and analyses the social strategies of both the authorities and the residents of Mologa and Mologsky district directly, continuing by determining, based on the analysis of the social strategies of the inhabitants subjected to relocation, the forms and mechanisms of interaction between the residents and the local authorities. As a result of the analysis, the author shows the human dimension of the “big construction” policy; determines the value of social strategies chosen by ordinary residents and Mologa authorities on the general course of resettlement. Attention is also paid to the problems faced by local communist party organizations in the process of organizing resettlement.
