Russian Revolution: Hope, Tragedy, and Myths - Exhibition in London

The Library of the British Museum in London will host an exhibition dedicated to the centenary of the October Revolution

      The exhibition will include about 200 items, including Vladimir Lenin's request for a library card of the British Museum Library.

      Visitors will see personal belongings of the leader of the proletariat, as well as posters, movies, books and historical documents related to the Russian revolution. All these exhibits illustrate important events of the 20th century world history - the October Revolution and the Civil War in Russia, as well as formation of the USSR.

      "We feel our connection to the revolutionary events in Russia, because many of the ideas that later changed the world, were born here," -  the library director, Roly Keating said.

      The exhibition will run from April 28 to August 29, 2017.
