Synopsis

In Bread of Exile, two opposing worlds are juxtaposed: a world of privilege and power that saw the end of imperial Russia and struggled to survive Communist persecution and military attack, and one of dispossession and exile.Dimitri Obolensky's family belonged to the upper echelons of the Russian aristocracy. This collection of unpublished memoirs, diaries, and notebooks by six different family members spans more than one hundred years. Russia's turbulent history is made vividly real through intimate recollections of those who suffered the dramatic consequences of the Russian Revolution and lived the rest of their lives as emigres.
