The project focuses on the study of the influence of the anti-religious press on the process of becoming Soviet Jews in the 1920s and 1930s. The analysis of the language of anti-religious periodical press and letters from local correspondents to the editorial office of Bezbozhnik (Godless) newspaper is in spotlight. A combination of linguistic and historical methods will give a chance to understand the worldview of members of Jewish commons in the 1920s and 1930s and will pave the way for interesting discoveries.
