Pogroms in the Russian Empire were large-scale, targeted, and repeated anti-Jewish rioting that first began in the 19th century. Pogroms began occurring after Imperial Russia, which previously had very few Jews, acquired territories with large Jewish populations from the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth and Ottoman Empire during 1772–1815. These territories were designated "the Pale of Settlement" by the Imperial Russian government, within which Jews were reluctantly permitted to live...
The first pogrom is sometimes considered to be the 1821 Odessa pogroms. After the execution of the Greek Orthodox patriarch, Gregory V, in Constantinople, 14 Jews were killed in response. The initiators of the 1821 pogroms were the local Greeks, who used to have a substantial diaspora in the port cities of what was known as Novorossiya.
At least 40 Jews were killed during pogroms during April to December 1881.[full citation needed] Of these, 17 were reportedly killed while being raped. An additional 225 incidents of Jewish women being raped were reported.

A much bloodier wave of pogroms broke out from 1903 to 1906, leaving an estimated 2,000 Jews dead and many more wounded, as the Jews took to arms to defend their families and property from the attackers.

The pogroms are generally thought to have been organized or at least condoned by the authorities. However, that view was challenged by Hans Rogger, I. Michael Aronson and John Klier, who were unable to find such sanction to be documented in the state archives. However, the anti-Semitic policy that was carried out from 1881 to 1917 made them possible. Official persecution and harassment of Jews influenced numerous anti-Semites to presume that their violence was legitimate. That sentiment was rein
The pogroms of the 1880s caused a worldwide outcry and, along with harsh laws, propelled mass Jewish emigration. Among the passed antisemitic laws were the 1882 May Laws, which prohibited Jews from moving into villages in an attempt to address the cause of the pogroms, but in fact, the pogroms were caused by a different reason. The majority of the High Commission for the Review of Jewish Legislation actually noted the fact that almost all of the pogroms had begun in the towns and attempted to ab
