Brendan McGeever on Anti-Semitism and the Russian Revolution

Hidden Histories

Brendan McGeever talks to Helen about the relationship between anti-semitism and the Russian Revolution. The Russian Revolution in 1917 was a complex event, with myriad factions vying for power. In the chaos, a wave of anti-semitic attacks occurred, and many of the those vying for control did little to stop this. The Bolsheviks, lead by Vladimir Lenin, opposed anti-semitism but had to confront it within the movement and the wider working class. This produced a fascinating and at times contentious relationship between the Bolshevik leadership and Jewish socialists within the party.Brendan McGeever is a Lecturer in Sociology at Birkbeck, University of London.Find out more here: https://www.ukri.org/news/100-new-generation-thinkers/Producer: Peter Curry See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
