      History of the Jews in Russia and Poland, Volume 3 [of 3]: From the Accession of Nicholas II until the Present Day, by Simon Dubnow, trans. by Israel Friedlaender (Gutenberg ebook) History of the Jews in Russia and Poland, Volume 1 [of 3]: From the Beginning until the Death of Alexander I ().
