Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about two speeches given at the First All-Russian Congress of Soviets of Workers' and Soldiers' Deputies. In the first, the speaker says that they are on the eve of a turning point in the Russian Revolution and, perhaps, they will soon and definitively have to say that the Russian Revolution has ended, that the Russian Revolution has given the maximum that it can give. Perhaps the tragedy is the Revolution, perhaps the people have come to the final summation and they will go no further. In the second, the speaker proposes a resolution on the question of the struggle against anti-Semitism, the wager on the Jews. According to the speaker, only the most decisive measures can bring the misguided people, who are currently following dark demagogues, back to a proper path. The resolutions proposed to the Congress are listed in the chapter.

Keywords:All-Russian Congress; anti-Semitism; Jews; Russian Revolution; soldiers; workers
