pogroms – anti-semitism, revolution and civil war (presented by allan little) (3rd of 5 episodes in the a history of hate series)

Allan Little examines a wave of anti-Semitic violence that erupted a century ago. During the Russian civil war, after the revolution of 1917, tens of thousands of Jews were murdered in a series of horrific pogroms.

We hear how warring factions were united by their hatred for the Jewish people, fuelled by the mistaken belief that they by attacking the Jews they were “punching up” at a dangerous and powerful elite.”
