V. V. Zdanovich. The history of everyday life in the Nazi-occupied territory of Belarus in the works of Belarusian historians // Petersburg historical journal, 2022, no. 3, pp. 64–79
The article analyzes the works of Belarusian historians devoted to the life history of urban and rural residents of Belarus during the Nazi occupation in 1941–1944. The analysis carried out shows that in the Soviet period, according to the party guidelines, the life of different categories of the population in the occupied territory was considered in Soviet historical literature as a daily battle with the enemy. A characteristic feature of the Belarusian period was the development of new directions in the study of the problem, detailed coverage of various aspects of the occupation regime, the consideration of which in Soviet historiography was determined by brevity. Among the little-studied plots, the author singles out the life story of urban and rural residents of Belarus during the Nazi occupation. The subject of scientific research in Belarusian historiography was the policy of forced labor, which was carried out by the German occupation authorities on the territory of Belarus, the forms and methods of coercion, the financial and legal status of the population. The subject of scientific discussion was the topic of the use of women’s labor — the main labor force in the occupied territory. Historians also paid attention to the problem of the relationship between residents and partisans.
