Elusive Emancipation: Jews in the Russian Empire, the Soviet Union, and Beyond
Hosted By: The Center for Jewish History
The majority of the world’s Jews entered the twentieth century unemancipated. Most of that majority lived in what is today Ukraine, Belarus, and Lithuania, at the time part of the Russian Empire. Join Benjamin Nathans (University of Pennsylvania) as he explores why emancipation came so late to the empire of the tsars, what role Jews played in its arrival, and how the Bolshevik Revolution recast the meaning of emancipation itself, with consequences that are still with us today.
