A century after the Russian Revolution, an exhibition at the Wilson Special Collections Library at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will examine the events of 1917 and their immediate aftermath.
World on Fire in Flames of Blood: Narratives of the Russian Revolution will feature eyewitness accounts, propaganda publications, handwritten refugee journals, photographs and literary representations of one of the most influential world events of the last century. It will focus largely on the catastrophic civil war that erupted in Russia following the Bolshevik Revolution.
The free public exhibition will be on view in the Melba Remig Saltarelli Exhibit Room from January 21 through May 14. For hours, contact Wilson Library at 919.962.3765 or visit the library website.
