Two Kristinas: The Fate and Future of Georgia’s Doukhobors

Elene Shengelia

Calculating ...


A small religious minority, the Doukhobors built a home in Georgia in the 1840s, after falling afoul of the tsarist Russian Empire. For generations, they thrived in the area, settling into eight villages. But today their numbers are dwindling, largely due to mass emigration.

Both Kristinas are fiercely proud of their Doukhobor heritage, but the challenges facing the Doukhobors are forcing each girl to make very different choices for her future.
