Plot synopsis
The film is dedicated to the 90th anniversary of the Russian exodus. The "Russians without Russia" film series opens up new pages in the history of the first wave of Russian immigration. Today, the average Russian knows very little about the Cossack corps led by General Wrangel. But Lemnos is a short, yet unique chapter in the history of the White movement that can only be compared to the sitting at Gallipoli. This Greek island in the Aegean Sea became home to tens of thousands of refugees from Russia and parts of the Russian army, led by commanding General Petr Wrangel. The Cossacks labeled Lemnos "The Isle of Death", where every day was spent not only fighting for physical survival, but also for honor and dignity. The remains of a few hundred people, including small children, will forever rest there. Their fates are moving and touching. The film includes interviews with descendants of those who survived this horror and, through it all, remained Russian.
