JUNE 1918

This month, the focus of exhibits is on foreign intervention and events in Asian Russia, but first we look at an event that took place in Perm, just on the European side of the Ural mountains –  the assassination of Grand Duke Michael, the Tsar’s brother.  The presence and involvement of various states and nationalities are the focus of the next four exhibits, with pieces relating to the Austro-Hungarian Polish officer Roman Dyboski, the Serbian diplomat Jovan Milanković, and then British and Japanese intervention.  The month’s exhibits end with a White Russian memoir with a jaded view of the involvement of foreign forces in the Russian Civil War.
