Myth and History in the Russian Jewish Past

The word “pogrom” has come to serve as a sturdy coda for all that transpired to the Jews of Eastern Europe and Russia at the turn of the 20th century. How consistent these assumptions are with history, how they surfaced and with such persistence and resonance and what else transpired in this culturally diverse, singularly fertile community will be the subject of this talk.

Delivered in English.

Presented by: the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research
