London Translating into Russian Group event: Natalia Dissanayake “What were the Russian Experiences of London – 16th Century Onwards?” on Thursday 1 October at 19:00.

21st September 2020

Dear All,

I would like to let you know about a talk by our longstanding member Natalia Dissanayake “What were the Russian Experiences of London – 16th Century Onwards?”  on Thursday 1 October at 19:00. 

This is a “London Translating into Russian Group event”

 

This is a meetup with the author, Natalia Dissanayake, who will present her book about the lives of Russian emigre in London since the 16th century.
Natalia Dissanayake is a Blue Badge guide and she has masterfully intertwined the lives of prominent Russian figures, aristocracy, ballet dancers, tsars, writers, scientists, sportspeople and many others with London land marks. Moreover, it’s the story or stories about the hardships they endured while adaptating to a new life in England and the mark some of them made on this country.
The book is the result of many years of hard graft, meticulous research, numerous trips to spots and places linked to prominent Russians in England, persuasive conversations with collectors and archive owners.
Natasha met some of the family members personally and they shared with her precious stories and photographs from their family albums.
You will have a unique opportunity to hear “from the horse’s mouth” and meet a remarkable author with an encyclopedic knowledge of all things ballet and history of Russians in England.

Русские в Лондоне. Среди них были и крестный отец
королевы Виктории; и танцовщица, навсегда ставшая
символом балета; и дипломат, происшествие с которым
заставило Парламент принять Акт о дипломатической
неприкосновенности; и первая женщина — Президент
Королевского колледжа ветеринаров-хирургов;
и два заключенных в Брикстонской тюрьме, ставшие
потом министрами у себя на родине; и “железная
женщина”, покорившая сердца двух выдающихся
писателей ХХ века.

Эта книга — многолетний труд автора, разыскавшего,
выслушавшего и собравшего воедино множество
историй о россиянах в Лондоне с середины XVI века до
наших дней. Среди них члены российской императорской
фамилии, аристократы и большевики, писатели и ученые,
музыканты и художники, дипломаты и церковнослужители,
артисты и спортсмены, воины и даже секретные агенты.
Истории некоторых из них известны очень немногим.
