Ссылка на поселение в мемуарах бывших крепостных
This article studies the ideas of former serfs about exile to Siberia and about exile to a distant
landlord’s estate. The study refers to published memoirs, the authors of which were serfs by birth living
in the European part of the Russian Empire. The author concludes that the memoirists assessed
the exile to settlement as the worst alternative to the realities of serfdom.
