Hirsh Lekert. Person. Deed. Afterlife

In 1902 Hirsh Lekert, a bundist shoemaker, shot at the Vilna governor Von Wahl, injuring him slightly. Shortly after Lekert was sentenced to death and hanged. Later on the previsously unknown Hirsh Lekert became one of the most mentioned and highly romanticized Bundist when authors were refering to action not thought. As a mixture of historical interpretation and the publishing of sources on the case this joint project between Frank Wolff and Gleb J. Albert will aks two central questions: How could a Bundist commiting a terrorist act become a figure that central? How did certain parties and groups in certain temporal and spatial settings deal with (or invent) Hirsh Lekert and his deed?
