If you click here you will get to the link for the Russian Revolution: Hope, Tragedy, Myths exhibition at the British Library (closes Tue 29 Aug 2017). Obviously it is to mark the centenary of the Russian Revolution, and looks great. I want you go and visit it, and post your thoughts below.
From the fall of Russia’s last Tsar to the rise of the first communist state, this definitive exhibition takes a fresh look at the Russian Revolution 100 years on.
With rarely seen items from both sides of the conflict – from a first edition of the Communist Manifesto to anti-Bolshevik propaganda – this is a unique chance to understand the lesser-known personal stories behind the events that changed the world.
Also on display for the first time, from the British Library’s own archive: Lenin’s handwritten application for a Reader Pass.
Uniting the political and the personal, explore the Russian Revolution’s central characters, most notably Lenin and Trotsky, alongside the tales of ordinary people living through extraordinary times. Did events in Russia in 1917 transform the international landscape forever? Did they shape the world we live in today?
Bringing to life the hope, tragedy and myths of this seismic revolution, discover Russia 1917 – the biggest flame in a world on fire.
