I have somehow had the wrong idea that in America there has not been many real Communists. However, later I have understood that some Communists moved to America, too. Why did they move to America and when? Where did they come from? I have even some idea that in some book they mentioned that there were people in America from the Sovjet Union area that preached even the communist ideas in America.
And it is not so long ago when I have heard somebody mention "the White Russians" that must be some kind of an opposite to those who were Communists. And to be a Russian is surely not identical to be a Communist. So, what people do they mean with "the White Russians"?
The word "Emigrant" was what I know originally used only of those who fled the Russian Revolution in the times around the 1920 and who fled for their lives. Those people have never lived in the Sovjet Union.
According to some source (that I don't remember) the Huguenots are mentioned to have been the first refugee group in Europe (
). But later there have been people who came from the Sovjet Union area and even those call themselves or are they called by others to be Emigrants.
Is there somebody who know what groups of people left the Sovjet Union area during the times after the Revolution? I really mean people that had been living even in the Sovjet Union? How could they manage to get out of the Sovjet Union? I have understood that in fact it was almost impossible at least if you were some person of at least some "importance". And how could poor people and those who were of no importance manage and make their way to America or elsewhere during the times of the Sovjet Union? There surely is something hard to understand in all this talk of having some emigrant background.
These questions surely has to do with one's Russian Roots.
