Abstract

This essay links and analyzes two hitherto distinct components of Stalin's Great Terror: The Mass Operations, a series of mass arrest campaigns of August 1937-August 1938, directed against particular categories of people, which accounted for half the arrests and executions of the Great Terror of 1934-1939, and the Provincial Show Trials of raion level officials that unfolded simultaneously, creating a climate of hysteria among local officials and ordinary people alike, in which Terror could and did spread.
