Leading Russian-language Parisian Journal for Immigrants Digitized

MINNEAPOLIS, USA. September 11, 2019 – The literary weekly Illiustrirovannaia Rossiia is now online and searchable from East View.

Published from 1924 until 1939 for intelligentsia who had fled in the early USSR for Paris, Illiustrirovannaia Rossiia captured the vibrancy of Russian émigré thought and culture between the dawn of the USSR and the Great Patriotic War.

Because Illiustrirovannaia Rossiia was published outside the USSR, this helped to insulate it from political dogma and threat of repercussion. All 748 issues championed intellect over ideology.

“Illiustrirovannaia Rossiia’s unique perspective on Russian literature and culture makes it the ideal laboratory for studying early Soviet literature and culture without the influence of Bolshevism or Stalinism,” said Kent D. Lee, East View’s President/CEO.

Over the years the journal would become one of the most important, if not the most important, Russian émigré periodicals attracting literary and journalistic talent from the far-flung Russian diaspora communities. Illiustrirovannaia Rossiia remains an invaluable and unique repository of textual and visual representation, providing researchers with indispensable insight into Russian cultural life in exile.
