The young aristocrats who, inspired by the ideas of the French Revolution, attempted a revolt in 1825 - sometimes seen as the idealistic forerunner of the Russian Revolution of 1917 - are described in 'The Duel' chapter of RUSSKA.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
The Guillotine lives on! Within Paris’ 11th district, at the corner of the streets of La Croix-Faubin and Roquette, there are five concrete plates that pop out of the asphalt around them. Those five spots are what is left from the French guillotine. These marks of the former French judicial system have been kept and are still visible today.
