Kaplan fanny 1918

Fanya Kaplan, circa 1918.

Fanya Kaplan
(Фа́нни Ефи́мовна Капла́н) was a Social Revolutionary activist and was known for her failed assassination attempt against Soviet chairman Vladimir Lenin.


Kaplan was born Feiga Haimovna Roytblat (Фейга Хаимовна Ройтблат) on February 10, 1890. She became a political revolutionary at an early age and joined a radical group, the Social Revolutionaries.

In 1906, she was arrested for her role in a bomb plot and sent to Siberia, where she temporarily lost her vision. After the February Revolution brought down the monarchy, she was released.

Kaplan became disillusioned with Lenin as a result of the conflict between the Socialist Revolutionaries and the Bolshevik Party.
