ww2dbaseIn 1924, Uzbek Soviet Socialist Republic formed the Tajik Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic within its borders; the capital was set up at the village of Dyushambe (now Dushanbe) with a small population of 3,000. On 5 Dec 1929, it was promoted to the Tajik Soviet Socialist Republic to become a member of the Soviet Union; at the same time, Dyushambe was renamed Stalinabad. Although it was among the smallest Soviet republics, it still contributed more than 300,000 men for Soviet military service, many of whom saw action against German forces; somewhere between 50,000 and 90,000 Tajik servicemen were killed during WW2. After the war, Tajikistan remained a part of the Soviet Union until the independent Republic of Tajikistan was formed in Sep 1991.
