The article reproduces a set of letters stored in the fund of Arseniy (Stadnitsky) of the Russian Federation State Archive, concerning the events of Kishinev pogroms of 1903 and 1905. Stadnitsky was a well-known church figure in the first third of the 20th century, a native of Bessarabia. The letters were written by Stadnitsky’s relative D.V. Shcheglov, a teacher at the Kishinev Women’s Diocesan School. One of the letters belongs to Shcheglov’s mother. The letters describe the Kishinev pogrom of 1903; give an assessment of the causes and consequences of this event, as well as of a similar pogrom of 1905. The texts are of interest because they reflect the vision of anti-Semite manifestations typical for Kishinev Christian inhabitants in the early 20th century.
