The Notion About "The Other": Russian Emigrants In The Balkan Countries (1920-1940)

Summary/Abstract: In this article the author reveals the complex question connected with the creation of the notion about “The Other”, “The Alien” in the case with the clash between the Russian emigrants and Balkan society in the first half of the XX th century. The created notion about “The Other” is a complex combination of different notions that not scarcely pass from one extreem to the other. The social elite that was secured in its position and privileges was able to create idealised notions about “them”. They were notions that were far from reality of real life of coexistence, but more with previous stereotypes. The notion of the middle class people, the workers etc. were negative. They have been influnced by the apearence of Russians with good education and profecional knowledge that were able to be serious competition at the labour market. The rural notion was more unified and not idealised or negative. It shows spontaneous and open emphathy towards the emigrants.
