Nokhum Khanin

NYU Press

This chapter details the travelogue of socialist revolutionary Nokhum Khanin, who had immigrated to the United States and, in the late 1920s, journeyed to the Soviet Union. Khanin reminisces on his time in the Bund as he seeks out his former comrades in Russia, finding to his surprise that the Bund is in decline and that everyone seems worse off than when he'd left them, despite the prominence of Communist officials in the government. Khanin himself was not a Communist, though he shared the same socialist ideals as many of his comrades, and was disappointed to see that Communism did not improve their lives as had been hoped.
