“Revolutionary Lion”, a new exhibition about Trotsky
« on: November 21, 2009, 08:27:03 AM »
A new exhibition about Trotsky reveals unseen aspects of his legacy.

“Revolutionary Lion,” a new exhibition at the Museum of Political History of Russia in St.Petersburg, pays tribute to the life and work of Leon Trotsky. On Nov. 6, the museum unveiled a modest but concise exhibition of rare photographs, manuscripts, letters and other artifacts in honor of the 130th anniversary of Trotsky’s birth, on Nov. 7, 1879.
A leading figure in the October Revolution, Trotsky was widely considered to be second in power only to Lenin. He served as Commissar for Foreign Affairs following the Revolution, and in 1918 became the head of the Red Army, which he reformed and guided through the Civil War.

Revolutionary Lion” can be seen until Dec. 9 at the Museum of Political History, Ulitsa Kuibysheva 2-4;
