Beschrijving Pogroms

From the 1880s to the 1940s, an upsurge of explosive pogroms caused much pain and suffering across the eastern borderlands of Europe. Rioters attacked Jewish property and caused physical harm to women and children. During World War I and the Russian Civil War, pogrom violence turned into full-blown military actions. In some cases, pogroms wiped out of existence entire Jewish communities. More generally, they were part of a larger story of destruction, ethnic
purification, and coexistence that played out in the region over a span of some six decades.

Pogroms: A Documentary History surveys the complex history of anti-Jewish violence by bringing together archival and published sources—many appearing for the first time in English translation. The documents assembled here include eyewitness testimony, oral histories, diary excerpts, literary works, trial records, and press coverage. They also include memos and field reports authored by army officials, investigative commissions, humanitarian organizations, and government officials.
This landmark volume and its distinguished roster of scholars provides an unprecedented view of the history of pogroms.
