Catastrophe and the Contemporary Jewish Imagination: The 1903 Kishinev Pogrom
as Fact and Fiction

Kishinev's pogrom of 1903 was the first event in Russian Jewish life to receive international attention. The riot that left 49 dead in an obscure border town dominated the headlines of the western press for weeks, intruded on US-Russian relations, and left its impact on an astonishing array of institutions: the nascent Jewihs army in Palestine, the NAACP, and likely the first version of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. Why did it have this impact, and why did it provide the prism through which so much of the contemporary Jewish experience would be seen?
