Following the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia in 1917 many Russians, among them Jews. went into exile. Cairo was one of those places because it was already a refugee for many Jews who were expelled as "enemy aliens" form Palestine by the Ottoman authorities. I enclose an ad published in "La Revue Sioniste" in Cairo on Nov 19th, 1920 exactly 100 years ago. It is an ad for a medical clinic of "Russian Specialists". Let me know if you recognize relatives of yours.
