The Russian Revolution and the East End

with David Rosenberg

Walks & Trips

From the early 1880s, the East End was home to large numbers of Jews who fled the Tsarist Russian Empire.

But many of them retained contact with the ‘old’ country, some even returned in 1917 to join the Revolution and various Russian revolutionaries, including Lenin, spoke in the East End while they were exiled in London. 100 years on, this walk takes you through the story of the East End as a hotbed of politics, protest and revolution.
