Burnt by the Sun

There were five main components to the construction of each Soviet nationality during korenizatsiia (indigenization). These were: representation (through Soviet cadres), economic life, citizenship, land and territorial autonomy and receiving a Soviet education to inculcate “class consciousness.” The Soviet Koreans excelled in every measure and campaign in order to show and prove their loyalty to “Soviet power.” But they never received a large autonomous territory which was commensurate to their population. Thus, the Soviet claims of “real and legal equality” for all nationalities fell short of reality when it came to the Koreans.

Keywords:   real and legal equality, Soviet socialism, korenizatsiia, Koreans
