Russian Refugees in France and the United States Between the World Wars (Transaction 81-7)
James E. Hassell
Transaction 81 No. 7
Revolution in 1917 brutally shattered old Russia in all its aspects. Something on the order of a million & a half people consequently fled or were expelled from the territory of the former Russian Empire. This study, undertaken before the advent of glasnost & perestroika, describes the experiences of Russians who arrived in the U.S. between the two world wars. But the spiritual center of the entire Russian diaspora was France, particularly Paris, so France must be part of the story. Many of the refugees who ultimately settled in the U.S. passed through France. Many had connections in France; therefore, some knowledge of the French situation is crucial for an understanding of the emigres in this country & indeed throughout the world.
