Restoring Vacations after the War

Restoring Vacations after the War

(p.128) Chapter four Restoring Vacations after the War
Club Red

Diane P. Koenker

Cornell University Press

This chapter takes up the story of vacations and tourism in the postwar years. This period offered new opportunities to expand and reshape not only Soviet vacation opportunities but the entire direction of the Soviet project. But the victory over fascism could also serve to validate the Soviet system as it had developed by the end of the 1930s. The chapter shows how the greatest challenge for tourism and vacations in building on the patterns established before the war was to recover from the economic devastation of wartime, and how little energy or effort was expended on reimagining the structure, content, or meaning of these vacations.

Keywords:   postwar vacations, postwar tourism, Soviet vacations, postwar economy, reimagining vacations
