Inside out.
Jewish Russia.

Jews have lived in Russia for over a thousand years but for centuries suffered ongoing misery and anti-Semitism. Despite the Jews’ turbulent past during the Holocaust and under the Communist regime, however, their contribution to Soviet society and culture was immense. Today 250,000 Jews live in Moscow and 40,000 live in St. Petersburg. We will explore the Jews’ dark history in one of the world’s most powerful countries, the Jewish response to emigrate to Israel and the US, and the reality for Russian Jews today.
