Abstract [en]

There was significant emigration of Swiss people to the Russian Empire from the late 17th to the late 19th century. Most of these Swiss diaspora populations returned to Switzerland before or shortly after the 1917 revolution. Fates of those remained in Russia are mostly unknown. The article is a case study in the Widmann family genealogy and history during the late 19th - beginning of 20th century. Facts and description of Anna Widmann‟s life represent one of the personal histories of those many thousands of Swiss emigre to Russia. The article also examines relationships between the Russian (e.g. Evgenia Tur, Nikolai Bogolepov) and Swiss (Josef Viktor Widmann) members of the family and their friends (Carl Spitteler and Alexander Skryabin), well known figures in the intellectual life of both countries.
