«Еврейский вопрос» - в публицистике Ф.М. Достоевского и Г. фон Трейчке

Translator: Б. Л. Хавкин

The 60-s and 70-s of the 19th century were in Europe an era of the triumph of liberal values, an era of a powerful modernization process that also embraced the conservative monarchies of Central and Eastern Europe. This process also extended to the Russian Empire, where after the defeat in the Crimean war, grandiose reforms were launched, which to some extent can be compared with the Peter the Great’s revolution from the top of the beginning of the XVIII century. But already in the late 1870s, many, both in the West and in the East, began to doubt the meaning of modernization, which was increasingly identified with the Jews. This fight against the so-called “Jewish troublemakers” acquired new quality when influential authors such as Fedor Dostoevsky and Heinrich von Treitschke joined it. This article is dedicated to this topic.
