Level 2Web resourcesInstructions" '1917. Free History' is a project that enables participants to find out about the history of 1917 from those who lived during this defining moment of twentieth century history. The project consists entirely of primary sources. It includes not a trace of invention. All the texts used are taken from genuine documents written by historical figures: letters, memoirs, diaries and other documents of the period. “1917. Free History” is a serial, but in the form of a social network.

Every day... you will find out what happened exactly one hundred years ago: what various people were thinking about and what happened to each of them in this eventful year. You may not fast-forward into the future, but must follow events as they happen in real time." (Pushkin House, n.d.)
