In the early 1920s Berlin had one of the largest Russian communities in Europe outside Russia. About 300,000 Russians are belived to be living in Germany at the time, most of them being White Russians, fleeing the October Revolution. At the time Berlin was also one of the most popular printing centres, due to the inflation and extremely low local currency.
