With Helen Rappaport, historian and the New York Times bestselling author of “The Romanov Sisters.”
This illustrated lecture spotlights the outbreak of the Russian Revolution through eye-witness accounts left by foreign nationals who saw the drama unfold. During 1917 Petrograd was turned into a ‘red madhouse’ as diplomats, military attaches, governesses, journalists, businessmen and nurses watched history being made in the war-torn capital.
