Die deutsche Besatzungspolitik in der Sowjetunion wahrend des Zweiten Weltkrieges ist in zahlreichen Untersuchungen analysiert und ebenso die Rolle der verschiedenen sowjetischen Nationalitaten unter deutscher Besetzung aus unterschiedlichen Richtungen durchleuchtet worden. Allein das Schicksal der deutschen Minderheit der Sowjetunion in dieser Zeit wurde in der internationalen Literatur weithin ausgespart. Von vornherein der Kollaboration verdachtig, schien die deutsche Volksgruppe als privilegierteste der nationalen Minderheiten in der UdSSR unter deutscher Besetzung wenig Stoff zu einer breiteren Studie zu bieten. Gestutzt auf umfassende Quellen zeigt nun aber Ingeborg Fleischhauer, dass die Deutschen in der Sowjetunion nicht nur zu Opfern der Stalinistischen Deportationspolitik, sondern auch zu Objekten der Himmlerschen Germanisierungsmanie wurden. Die Autorin fuhrt den Beweis, dass sich die Mittaterschaft und der Kollaborationseifer der deutschen Minderheit in Grenzen hielt, und schildert, wie sie dennoch, in langerfristiger historischer Perspektive betrachtet, fur den Expansionismus des NS-Staates mit dem permanenten Verlust ihrer historischen Heimat bussen musste."
