Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, v45 n3 p369-402 2009
This article looks at the role played by the Czechoslovakian Republic in the establishment and maintenance of the "Russian education system in exile" in Europe during the 1920s and 1930s. No other country supported the educational activities of the Russian emigrants as generously as Czechoslovakia. Thanks to this extensive and targeted support, a well-developed "Russian education system" came into being in Czechoslovakia, and Prague became the centre of Russian educational emigration in Europe. Czechoslovakia's support for the Russian emigrants had not only humanitarian reasons, but was to a large extent motivated by political and economic interests. (Contains 126 footnotes.)
