Abstrakt: This thesis studies how geopolitical concerns influence attitudes of a state toward its
ethnic minorities. Using data digitized from archival sources on more than 2 million
individual arrests by the Soviet secret police, I apply difference-in-differences and synthetic
control method to estimate how changing German-Soviet relations influenced repressions
of Germans in the Soviet Union. The results of both methods show that there was large
and statistically significant increase in arrests of Germans following the German invasion
into the Soviet Union in 1941. Furthermore, the impact of war appears to be highly
persistent since there is almost no decline in the estimated effect on repressions for nearly
10 years after the end of the war
