I invite to join my new talk dedicated to the life of Leningrad and Moscow Jews in Soviet Union.

We will discuss the whole period from the Revolution of 1917 to the fall of Soviet Union in 1991 and post-Soviet times as well.

Some of the topics I am going to touch:

  • Russian revolution and the myth of "Jews who sold Russia"
  • Soviet Jews - victims and beneficiars of the new political system
  • Holocaust - "not to be mentioned" word in Soviet reality
  • Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee and the night of the Murdered Poets
  • Doctor's plot - the blood label of 20th century - as the biggest governmental antisemitic action of Soviet government
  • Anti-Semitism and Anti-Zionism in the USSR
  • The phenomena of "Refuseniks" and underground Jewish movement of 1971-1989
  • The resurgence of Jewish life and culture in Independent Russia

As always I have prepared lots of photographs to illustrate the talk and of course I will share some personal stories of my family members and friends.
