Lenin, Jews, and Power

(p.64) III Lenin, Jews, and Power
Lenin's Jewish Question

Yohanan Petrovsky-Shtern

Yale University Press

This chapter examines Vladimir Lenin's connection with the Jews. It explains that Lenin's parents belonged to the well-educated Russian cultural elite and speak of someone's ethnic origin in the Ulianovs' milieu was the height of bad taste. It also mentions that both the Blanks and Ulianovs were Russian Christians, lived in Russian towns on the Volga River, and spoke Russian. This chapter considers Lenin's attitudes towards the Jews, how he treated his colleagues of Jewish origin, and what being Jew meant to him.

Keywords:   Vladimir Lenin, Jews, Russian cultural elite, Blanks, Ulianovs, ethnic origin, Russian Christians
