The concept of Exodus is fundamental in Jewish history. Jews have had to leave their homes many times: first from Egypt, then from Judea, Spain and many other European nations. The last Jewish exodus came about from Russia and other Soviet republics at the end of the twentieth century, ending the Jewish people’s controversial “two hundred years together” with Russians.
Today, hundreds of thousands of these modern-day Wandering Jews find themselves in Israel, the United States, and elsewhere. What made Russian Jews leave the land they were born this time around? Was Russia indeed a motherland or more like a stepmother? What is their identity and what country are they loyal to? What were the reasons for Soviet anti-Semitism exposed as the fifth record in their passports? The Fifth Record: Understanding the Last Jewish Exodus is about people in search of a better destiny while reconciling their split identity. The substance of this book consists of a combination of personal experience, focused observations, and subjective reflections about people of the last exodus. It depicts the realities surrounding Russian Jews before and after their last wave of exodus.
Written in his own heartfelt and passionate words, this book by Leo Pevsner evokes curiosity, imagination and disbelief. This well-researched text uncovers many answers about the last Jewish exodus through a historical and personal account of injustice, struggle and hope.
