History / Biographical Note

Biographical / Historical

Aleksandr L'vovich Kazem-Bek, Russian émigré social and political activist, founder and leader of the "Union of Young Russia" ("Mladorossy"), professor of Russian language and literature, journalist, was born in Kazan on the 15th (2nd old style) of February, 1902, into an old noble family of Persian (Azeri) origin. His great grandfather, the first Aleksandr Kazem-Bek, was one of the founders of Oriental studies in Russia, professor of Kazan and St. Petersburg universities. His father, Lev Kazem-Bek, a graduate of the Corp of Pages, was a Director of the State Bank in Kaluga and the Peasants' Land Bank in Reval (Tallinn).

In 1919, during the civil war, Aleksandr Kazem-Bek joined the White Army, and after the collapse of the White movement, left Russia with his family in 1920. He lived in Turkey, Greece, Yugoslavia, Hungary, Austria, Poland and eventually settled in France.

In 1921 he married Svetlana Ellis and had two children – daughter Nadine (1926) and son Aleksandr (1930).

In Munich, the "Union of Young Russia" was established in 1923 and Aleksandr Kazem-Bek was elected its president. The members of the Union were called "Mladorossy" and its slogan was "Neither Reds, nor Whites, but Russian". Kazem-Bek was reelected as a president of the movement in 1924 and held this post until the Mladoross party was dissolved in 1940. The movement had branches in many countries, including France, Germany, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, and others.

Before emigration, Aleksandr Kazem-Bek studied law at the University of Rostov. He continued his education emigration and did post-graduate study at the University of Belgrade; Technische Hochschule in Munich (1922-1923) and then in Paris at the Hautes Etudes Sociales et Politiques (1924-1925). From 1930 to 1932 he attended the Academy of Religion and Philosophy in Paris, which was led by Nikolai Berdiaev.

For several years Kazem-Bek worked at the Foreign Exchange department of the Credit Foncier de Monaco in Monte Carlo, until his return to Paris in 1929 as an established political activist of Europe's Russian émigré community. Besides being a head of the Mladoross movement, he played a leading role in youth organizations such as Russian Student Christian Movement (Russian YMCA), Boy Scouts, etc. He directed the publication of Russian language magazines and newspapers and was an active contributor to various notable émigré newspapers, including Mladoross' publications, such as Bodrost', Mladorosskaia Iskra, and others.

From the beginning of the World War II Kazem-Bek was an outspoken critic of Hitler. After the fall of France he was arrested and imprisoned in a concentration camp in Vernet. He was released in October 1940 and in 1941 he and his family left Europe and arrived to the United States. First Kazem-Bek worked at the Bank of America in San-Francisco (1942-1943) and later he commenced his career in academic circles, first as Russian language instructor at the Army Specialized Training Program at Yale University. In 1944-1946 he was a head of the Book Department of the YMCA's War Prisoners Aid program. In 1946 he became a member of the faculty of Connecticut College (New London) as Assistant Professor in Russian. He was a visiting professor of Russian language in the summer school of Middlebury College in Vermont. In 1954 he was a lecturing professor at the Government of India School of Foreign Language at New Delhi.

In the US Aleksandr Kazem-Bek continued his activity as social, political, and religious leader of the emigration. Among fulfilling other duties, he edited and published hundreds of essays and articles in periodical publications (mainly in Russian), including in the San Francisco-based Russian émigré newspaper Novaia Zaria.

In 1957 Kazem-Bek unexpectedly returned to the Soviet Union. Upon his arrival to Moscow, newspaper Pravda published his letter of contrition with anti-American statements. During the last twenty years of his life, Kazem-Bek worked for the Moscow Patriarchate both in the area of public relations and as a staff member of the Zhurnal Moskovskoi Patriarkhii.

Aleksandr Kazem-Bek died in the Soviet Union on February 21, 1977, and is buried near the Church of the Transfiguration in Lukino (village near Moscow).
