Outrage in many tongues: the Bund's response to the Kishinev pogrom
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
For the purpose of analysing the Bund's response to the Kishinev pogrom I have examined a particular genre of Bundist journalism: the published appeal, usually disseminated as a broadside, rather than the party's newspaper and journal articles. This approach is warranted because (a) the Bund's multilingual literary activities during the period under discussion concentrated on appeals, rather than journal articles; (b) these appeals enable us to trace the Bund's immediate, i.e. real-time, response to current events, whereas Bundist journals tended to react very slowly, if at all; (c) thirdly and not least, these appeals give us a window onto the different strategies selected to deal with different target groups.
