...and the Crisis in the Russian Empire, 1914-1917

Length: 1 hr 30 mins
Intermission: None
Seating: General Admission
You choose your seats when you get to the theater.

From the first days of World War I, Russian commanders pointed to the alleged disloyalty of Russia’s Jewish population. The Russian army began to solve the “problem” of Jewish disloyalty using local and mass expulsions from various localities, hostage-taking, and restrictions on the movement of Jews in the frontal zone. This lecture will examine the reasons for such an attitude towards the Jews and its consequences for the international and domestic situation of the Russian Empire in 1914-1917.
