Title translates to English as, “Experienced: A Collection Dedicated to the Social and Cultural History of Jews in Russia. ” An-ski (pseudonym of Shloyme-Zanvl Rappoport; 1863–1920) , was an “author and folklorist. …. In 1878, at the age of 16, he became a close friend of Chaim Zhitlowsky and soon discovered Hebrew and Russian literature. Attracted by the doctrines of the Haskalah, and the Narodniki (a group committed to revolutionizing the Russian peasants) , he went to live among Russian peasants and miners, and worked as a blacksmith, bookbinder, factory hand, and teacher. On the advice of the Russian writer Gleb Uspensky, he returned from south Russia to St. Petersburg and wrote for the Narodniki's monthly publication. Compelled to leave Russia in 1892, he stayed briefly in Germany and Switzerland before settling in Paris in 1894. There he worked for six years as secretary of the revolutionary and philosopher Piotr Lavrov, while writing short stories about Jewish radicals. Returning to Russia in 1905, he joined the Social-Revolutionary Party, circulated his 1902 Bund hymn "Di Shvue" ("The Oath") , and wrote folk legends and stories about Jewish poverty. …. As head of the Jewish ethnographic expedition financed by Baron Gunzberg he traveled through the villages of Volhynia and Podolia from 1912 to 1914, collecting material. His knowledge of folklore inspired his famous play The Dybbuk” (Maor, Yitzhak, in EJ, 2007).

" "The most frequently published, widely circulated, and influential Russian internationalist broadsheet of World War One... Whose editors included Julius Martov and Leon Trotsky. 'Nashe Slovo' consistently printed views from all shades of socialist thought. This helped it to attract contributors from across Europe.

" (The Scottish Historical Review, Vol. 78, 2: No. 206). The paper's anti-war stance led to its being labeled as "pro-German" and attacked by both French and Russian officials, a fact addressed in a cover article of No. 5 "Ni Germanofobiya, Ni Germanofil'stvo" [Not Teutonophobic, Not Teutonophile].

The first issue alone contained “The Autocracy and the Proletariat” (an editorial) , “On Good Demonstrations of Proletarians and Poor Arguments of Certain Intellectuals, ” ’Time to Call a Halt, ” and other articles by Lenin. The significance of Vpered in the history of the CPSU is defined by the fact that the paper was an ideological-political organ abroad that cooperated with the practical organ in Russia—the Bureau of Committees of the Majority—to give political and organizational shape to Bolshevism (The Great Soviet Encyclopedia, 3rd Edition. 1979).
