The Jewish Autonomous Region
The existence of the Jewish Autonomous Region is not known to all people, it is the only autonomous region on the territory of Russia. She gained her status in 1930, after many years of repression of the Jews. Formal legal education - except for Israel.
In the 20 century, there were a lot of Jews here, but now. More than half moved to Israel. Several times we wanted to take the status of autonomy from this region, because of inexpediency, but it did not happen. At the expense of the population, there are the most Russians here, then the Ukrainians, and the third place is the Jews.
