‘October’ as a marker of radicalisation: commemorations of the October Revolution in Denmark during the Cold War Period
Jesper Jørgensen, pages -

Abstract

On 9 November 1917 news of the new Russian revolution reached Denmark. On the front page of the daily Social-Demokraten (the Social Democrat) it announced, ‘The New State Upheaval in Russia’. At the very beginning the Danish Social Democratic Party supported the revolution and its leaders, but following the Bolsheviks’ dissolution of the constituent assembly in January 1918 this situation ended and the Danish labour movement split into a small revolutionary segment and a much bigger reformist one with different views on the questions of democracy and socialism.
