The data are generated by disaggregating the information on migrant stock in each destination country or economy as given in its census. The reference period is the 2000 round of population censuses, so the data do not refer to precisely the same time period.

Operation Barbarossa. Operation Barbarossa was the code name given to the German invasion of the Soviet Union on 22 June 1941.

Operation Barbarossa

It was given the name ‘Barbarossa’ after Frederick Barbarossa, the medieval Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire. This name is indicative of Hitler’s visions of encompassing the Soviet Union into the Greater German Reich through his plans for Lebensraum (‘living space’) for the German people. Operation Barbarossa was authorised by Hitler in December 1940, and was planned for a start date of 15 May 1941.

The invasion was delayed, however, and eventually took place five weeks later. Extract from the Commissar's Order For "Operation Barbarossa," JUNE 6, 1941. June 6, 1941 Staff Command Secret Document Chief Only Only Through Officer.
