ВѢСТНИКЪ КАТОРГИ И ССЫЛКИ (ФЕВРАЛЬ 1914. NO. 1) VESTNIK KATORGI I SSYLKI (FEB. 1914. NO. 1, ONLY, OF 2 ISSUES PUBLISHED). Paris, Impr. Russe, 1914. Original Stapled Wrappers. 8vo. 22 pages. 31cm. In Russian. 1st issue of this short-lived journal by two of the most famous women of the Russian Revolutionary Movement. Title translates to English as, "Journal of the Katorga Prisons and Exile." Subtitle: "Zhurnal Zagranichnykh Organizatsiy Pomoschi Politicheskim Ssylnym i Zaklyuchennym v Rossii" [Journal of the Foreign Aid Organizations, Political Exiles and Prisoners in Russia]. Published by the Political Prisoner's Aid Society, headed by Vera Figner and Ekaterina Breshkovskaya. CONTENTS: Iz Zhizni Sovremennoy Katorgi [From the Modern Life of Katorga] --- K Russkomu Narodu: Katorzhane Orlovskago Tsentrala [To the Russian People: From Convicts of Orlovsky Central] --- Kak Zhivet Katroga I Ssylka [Life in Katorga and Exile]. Figner was born to Jewish parents in Kazan, Russia, in 1852. "From 1872-1875, she [Figner] was a student of Department of Medicine at the University of Zurich. In 1873, Figner joined the Fritsche circle, which was composed of thirteen young Russian radical women, some of whom would become important members of the All-Russian Social Revolutionary Organization...Figner took part in the Kazan demonstration in St.Petersburg in 1876. From 1877-1879, working as a doctor's assistant, she conducted revolutionary propaganda in the villages around Samara and Saratov. In 1879, Figner took part in the Voronezh Congress of Zemlya i volya (Land and Liberty). After the split of Zemlya i volya in 1879, she became a member of the Executive Committee of Narodnaya Volya (The Will of the People), conducting propaganda activities among intelligentsia, students and military in St.Petersburg, Kronstadt and southern parts of Russia. Figner took part in the creation of the paramilitary wing of Narodnaya Volya and its activities. She participated in planning the assassination of Alexander II in 1880 in Odessa and in 1881 in St. Petersburg. After the successful assassination attempt on the tsar on March 1, 1881, Figner conducted revolutionary activities in Odessa. Being the only member of the Executive Committee left in Russia, she tried to resurrect Narodnaya Volya starting in 1882, which had been eliminated by the police….Figner was arrested at Kharkov, on February 10, 1883 and a year later sentenced to death, during the Trial of the Fourteen. The sentence, however, was commuted, through the intercession of Niko Nikoladze, to perpetual penal servitude in Siberia. She spent the 20 months before her trial in solitary confinement at the Peter and Paul Fortress and was then imprisoned for 20 years at Schlüsselburg. In 1904, Figner was sent into internal exile to the Arkhangelsk guberniya, then Kazan guberniya, and finally Nizhny Novgorod. In 1906 she was allowed to go abroad, where she organized a campaign for political prisoners in Russia. She spoke in different European cities, collected money, [and] published a brochure on Russian prisons translated into many languages. From 1907-1909, Figner joined the Esers, but left the party after the Azef scandal. In 1915 she returned to Russia….After the October Revolution (she never accepted the way it had happened), Figner published her book called Memoirs of a Revolutionist which is still considered one of the best examples of the Russian memoir genre. The book made her famous worldwide and was translated into many languages. Figner was also a member of the Society of the Former Political Prisoners and Exiles. She took active part in a magazine called Katorga and Exile (Katorgi I Ssylki) [This journal]. Figner authored a number of biographies of several narodniks and articles on history of the Russian revolutionary movement from the 1870s-1880s" (Wikipedia, 2012). For more on Figner, see Engel, "Five Sisters: Women Against the Tsar, 1992. "Catherine Breshkovsky (real name Yekaterina Konstantinovna Breshko-Breshkovskaya, 13 January 1844-12 September 1934) was a Russian socialist, better known as Babushka ('Grandmother') or, more solemnly, the Grandmother of the Russian Revolution. She left her home at the age of 26 to join followers of anarchist Mikhail Bakunin in Kiev. As a Narodnik revolutionary, she was imprisoned 1874 at Katorga and exiled to Siberia in 1878. After her release in 1896, she formed a Socialist-Revolutionary group and helped to organize the Socialist-Revolutionary Party in 1901. She escaped to Switzerland and the United States in 1900. After returning to Imperial Russia in 1905, she was captured and exiled to Siberia again. After the February Revolution of 1917, political prisoners were released, and Breshkovsky was given a seat in Aleksandr Kerensky's government. When the Bolshevik organized the October Revolution, Breshkovsky was again forced to flee" (Wikipedia, 2012). Her now classic "The Little Grandmother of the Russian Revolution: Reminiscences and Letters," was published in English in 1918. OCLC lists 5 holdings.

The "Union of Socialists-Revolutionaries Maximalists was a political party in the Russian Empire, a radical wing expelled from the Socialist-Revolutionary Party in 1906. The Union united agrarian terrorists, the 'Moscow Opposition' and other radical dissidents from the PSR in an independent party. The Maximalists officially split off from the PSR at its Second Congress in Imatra in 1906. Maximalists played a role in both the Revolution of 1905 and the Revolution of 1917. Many former SR Maximalists eventually joined the Russian Communist Party (Bolshevik)….Maximalists were so called because they demanded the full implementation of the 'maximum programme' in the expected revolution: full socialisation of the land, factories and all other means of production. The orthodox Socialist-Revolutionaries wanted to start with land reform but defer socialisation of other means of production. The Maximalists also rejected the PSR's version of a 'two-stage' revolution, a theory associated with V.M. Chernov. According to Chernov, the coming revolution in Russia would not be purely 'bourgeois-democratic' as the Social-Democrats claimed, but would include social and economic as well as political reforms. It would be a 'popular-democratic' revolution, and would transition into a full-blown 'labour-socialist' revolution later on. The Maximalists rejected this as Social-Democratic 'attentism' and argued that the coming Russian revolution would not be able to stop half-way; it was the two-stage theory, not Maximalism, that was unrealistic if it thought the toiling masses, once liberated, would content themselves with a bourgeois republic and gradual reforms."
