Description

Boris Souvarine Papers - Soviet Russia Photos graduateinstitute.ch/home/research/library/archives/boris... Notes: The back of the document holds the mention (in Russian and French): "The delegates to the IInd Congress of the IIIrd International, at Pavlovsk. In the middle of the group, Comrade Lilina. On her left, Mutzenberg". Zlata (or Zinaida) Ionova Lilina (1881-1929) was Grigori Zinoviev's wife. Involved in children care and education, she was People's Commissar for Social Planning to the Northern Commun (organ of the Petrograd Soviet). Victor Serge (1890-1947) described her as "a small crop-haired, grey-eyed woman (...) sprightly and tough". She stands in the middle of the group, with German delegate Willi Münzenberg (1889-1940) on her left. The man with a hat and a pipe may be Karl Radek (1885-1939). The man on the left, behind the woman in a white dress, may be Manabendra Nath Roy (1887-1954), delegate to Mexico, commissioned by Lenin to write the theses on national and colonial questions during the IInd Congress.

Political demonstration at Petrograd, 18th June 1917

Description

Boris Souvarine Papers - Soviet Russia Photos graduateinstitute.ch/home/research/library/archives/boris... Notes: This postcard shows a demonstration on the Nevsky Prospect, at Petrograd. The title reads "Political demonstration of the 18th of June, 1917, at Petrograd". This street demonstration took place in a tense political climate, with a coalition government challenged by the Bolshevik movement. At the opening of the first Congress of Soviets on the 16th of June, 1917, Lenin claimed ?All power to the soviets? and declared that the Bolshevik Party was ready to assume power. At the same time, Alexander Kerensky, Minister of War, launched a vast Russian offensive against Austro-Hungarian forces, followed by defeats. While anti-war protest grew, the Congress of the Soviets ? then still dominated by the Mensheviks ? organized a demonstration in Petrograd, for the 18th of June, in order to support the coalition government. However, the demonstration turned out to the advantage of the Bolsheviks, with protesters chanting Bolshevik slogans. This event marked the first advantage of the Bolsheviks and a decisive break between the Bolsheviks and Mensheviks. This event was followed by the riots of the July Days in Petrograd. The left banner reads ?All Power to the People - Peace to the Whole World - All Land to the People? and the right banner reads: ?Down with the minister-capitalists?; these were Bolshevik slogans. Unknown photographer. Description: 1 postcard. Black and white ; 9 x 13.5 cm. Sources and further reading: Figes, Orlando. 2014. Revolutionary Russia, 1891-1991 : a History.

May 1st 1917, Petrograd

Description

Boris Souvarine Papers - Soviet Russia Photos graduateinstitute.ch/home/research/library/archives/boris... Notes: The back of the picture reads (in Russian and French): "May 1st, 1917". The demonstration took place in a period of political tension. A few before, the publication of the Foreign Minister Pavel Miliukov's note to the allies in the war, was interpreted as a commitment to the war policies denounced by the Russian population. Subsequently, mass demonstrations were organized in Petrograd and Moscow, which entailed the fall of the First Provisional Government during what has been called the "April Days". In the same month, Lenin came back from his exile in Switzerland, and had his April Theses published, in which he condemned World War I and the Provisional Government as bourgeois. In his History of the Russian Revolution published in 1932, Trotski wrote about the pre-October Revolution atmosphere which surrounded the demonstration in Petrograd: "Like the March funeral, the 1st of May celebration passed off without clashes or casualties as an "all-national festival". However, an attentive ear might have caught already among the rank of the workers and soldiers impatient and even threatening notes. It was becoming harder to live. Prices had risen alarmingly (...) When will the revolution bring peace? What are Kerensky and Tseterelli waiting for [Provisional Government]? The masses were listening more and more attentively to the Bolsheviks, glancing at them obliquely, waitingly, some with half hostility, others already with trust. Underneath the triumphal discipline of the demonstration the mood was tense. There was a ferment in the masses" Unknown photographer. Description: 1 photograph. Black and white ; 17 x 23 cm.

"A la Gare Nicolas" - Grigori Zinoviev [s.d.]

Description

Boris Souvarine Papers - Soviet Russia Photos graduateinstitute.ch/home/research/library/archives/boris... Notes: The back of this picture holds the mention (both in Russian and French) "russe?/A la Gare Nicolas" ("At the Nicholas rail station"). It also shows this photographic company stamp:"???????? ?.?. ?????. ???????? ?????i? ??. 54". The "Nicolas train station" may designate the Vitebsky Station, the first rail station built in the Russian Empire, inaugurated by Tsar Nicholas I on October 1837. Between 1921 and 1924, Boris Souvarine was a member to the Secretariat of the Communist International. A close colleague of the Bolshevik leaders, he told about his work: "Le Bureau politique russe se réunit chaque jeudi, je m'en souviens bien, car le samedi, Zinoviev rentrait de Petrograd, par le fameux wagon du Tsar, que j'ai utilisé plusieurs fois avec lui". ("The Russian Politburo used to meet every Thursday, I remember it well, as on Saturdays Zinoviev used to go back from Petrograd by the famous Tsar's train, with which I have myself travelled several times with him" (our translation). This allusion may explain why Boris Souvarine kept this photo in his collection. Description: 1 photograph. Black and white ; 11 X 15.5 cm. Sources and further reading: Souvarine, Boris, Branko Lazitch, Michel Heller, and Regis Gayraud. 1990. Sur Lenine, Trotski et Staline = O Lenine, Trockom i Staline. Paris: Ed. Allia.

Notes: The back of this picture holds the mention (in Russian and French) "New elections to the Petrograd soviet at the Putilov factory, after the report by Comrade Glebov-Putilovskii, July 1920").

Description

Boris Souvarine Papers - Soviet Russia Photos graduateinstitute.ch/home/research/library/archives/boris... Notes: The « Square of the Victims of the Revolution » designates the Field of Mars, in Saint-Petersburg/Petrograd. After the February Revolution in 1917, this area of the city became a memorial place, where participants killed during the Revolution were buried. This picture probably shows a commemoration, which took place at the opening of the IInd Congress of the IIIrd International (17th July 1920). On this occasion, the delegates of the International came in procession to the Field of Mars, to pay a tribute to the victims. The procession may be carrying a symbolical coffin.

Tribune on Uritsky Square, Petrograd [17th July 1920]

Description

Boris Souvarine Papers - Soviet Russia Photos graduateinstitute.ch/home/research/library/archives/boris... Notes: The back of this picture holds the mention (in Russian) "IInd Congress of the IIIrd International. The tribune on Uritsky Square". One recognizes the Winter Palace colonnade in the background. The people photographed may be delegates to the Congress of the IIIrd International. The lady in a white dress seems to be the same as in the photo entitled "Group of the delegates of the IIIrd International, Petrograd". French syndicalist Alfred Rosmer (1877-1964) was one of the French delegates to the Communist International. He wrote about this event: "L?après-midi [17 juillet 1920] un meeting eut lieu sur la vaste place du Palais d?Hiver, si riche en souvenirs. (....) Une tribune était dressée devant le Palais d?où l?on dominait la foule venue pour écouter les orateurs. (...) La scène, c?était le péristyle qu?on atteignait par un haut escalier. La foule immense accourue pour voir le spectacle tenait à l?aise sur la vaste place. Dans ce cadre exceptionnel se déroulèrent une suite de scènes évoquant ? la marche du socialisme à travers les luttes et les défaites vers la victoire?. Unknown photographer. Description: 1 photograph. Black and white ; 11 x 16.5 cm. Sources and further reading: Rosmer, Alfred. 1920. Moscou sous Lénine.
