Abstract

The article analyzes the materials on religious themes, published in the collaborationist newspaper “Rech” on the occupied territory in 1941-1944. The main focus is on the classification of publications (there were selected factual, idiomatic, comparative, anti-Semitic and historical articles) and their propaganda component. The author considers the qualitative and quantitative evolution of the newspaper materials on religious life. The conclusion is drawn on their scientific potential and connection with military operations and changes in the policy of the Soviet state. The analysis of the central line of comparison of religious life during the pre-revolutionary period, the Soviet period and during the occupation in all publications enables to reveal the methods of invaders’ propaganda activities. The consideration of other thematic lines and their literary features helps to present the ideological potential of the newspaper in the creation of the collaborationist movement, and to characterize “Rech” as the information source for the population of the occupied territories.
