History of the Jews in Russia...

A History of the Jews in Russia and Poland from the pen of S. M. Dubnow (based upon a work in Russian which was especially prepared for JPS) needs neither justification nor recommendation. The work is divided into thee volumes. The second volume treats of the history of Russian Jewry from the death of Alexander I (1825) until the death of Alexander III (1894).

6 TRANSLATOR’S PREFACE rial, to which reference was made in the preface to the first volume, this introduction, which would have interrupted the flow of the narrative, had to be omitted. But a few passages from it, written in the characteristic style of Mr. Dubnow, may find a place here: Russian Tzardom began its consistent rôle as a persecutor of the Eternal People when it received, by way of bequest, the vast Jewish population of disintegrated Poland. At the end of the eight-eenth century, when Western Europe had just begun the emanci-pation of the Jews, the latter were subjected in the East of Eu-rope to every possible medieval experiment. . . . . The reign of Al-exander II., who slightly relieved the civil disfranchisement of the Jews by permitting certain categories among them to live outside the Pale and by a few other measures, forms a brief interlude in the Russian policy of oppression. His tragic death in 1881 marks the beginning of a new terrible reaction which has superimposed the system of wholesale street pogroms upon the policy of dis-franchisement, and has again thrown millions of Jews into the dismal abyss of medievalism. Russia created a lurid antithesis to Jewish emancipation at a time when the latter was consummated not only in Western Europe, but also in the semi- civilized Balkan States. . . . . True, the rise of Russian Judæophobia— the Russian technical term for Jew- ha-tred— was paralleled by the appearance of German anti- Semitism in which it found a congenial companion. Yet, the anti- Semitism of the West was after all only a weak aftermath of the infantile dis-ease of Europe— the medieval Jew- hatred— whereas culturally ret-rograde Russia was still suffering from the same infection in its acute, “ childish” form. The social and cultural anti- Semitism of the West did not undermine the modern foundations of Jewish civil equality. But Russian Judæophobia, more governmental than social, being fully in accord with the entire régime of absolutism, pro-duced a system aiming not only at the disfranchisement, but also at the direct physical annihilation of the Jewish people. The policy of the extermination of Judaism was stamped upon the forehead   C h a p t e r Home  | T O C For use on stand- alone, non- institutional computers only.
