259 individual documents cover all aspects of the Red Army's collaboration with the Reichswehr. The materials range from 1918 to 1938, but the vast majority date from the period between Rapallo and Hitler's rise to power, 1922 to 1933. They include materials on German-Soviet trade, exchanges of military missions, and technical assistance. Most of the documents are only a few pages in length, though some are over one hundred pages long. Most are in Russian, but there are some in German. Click here for an annotated list of documents.
