Default Sources on Jews and Communism

N.B. I wrote and published this on my blog: 'Semitic Controversies'. I reproduce it here for the sake of recording it somewhere else for people to use as a point of reference. I will add new entries as and when I make them. If reproducing this work elsewhere (i.e. parts of it not just individual references) please give credit and a link back to Semitic Controversies (to allow people to find things).

Introductory Note

What I reproduce here, for ease of reference, is an ongoing series of quotations from various sources, contemporary and modern, illustrating the hotly debated connection between jews and revolutionary ideas, particularly marxism. What these sources do not provide is proof positive that the jews and communism or jews and bolshevism are interchangeable (which is in my opinion an incorrect and overstated argument), but what they do provide is an easy-to-use archive of properly referenced quotes for the use of those engaged in arguments or research on this question. As many of the books I cite are academic in nature and/or are out-of-print: I thought it would be appropriate to provide my readers and the public in general with decent, as opposed to the silly [which proliferate on 'far right' discussion boards and destroy the credibility of those arguing a connection between the two], quotations on this most debated question.

I have also marked (inside the [] at the end of) the quotations for particular characteristics, which I provide a key to below:

* = Makes observations on the basis of their own visit to the Soviet Union.
+ = Makes observations on the basis of their experiences in Imperial Russia and/or during the Russian Civil War.
# = Makes observations on the basis of their own experiences in other countries that has Soviet/marxist style revolutions or attempted revolutions.
- = The author is of questionable reliability.
J = The author is a jew or jewess.

Any additional notes that maybe required for purposes of explanation and context have been made after the full citation in the references. The quotations are in no particular order.

If you have any additional quotes that you can properly reference and believe them to be of value then please do not hesitate to send them to me at the usual address: [email protected].

Part I

'The censorship department, and that means the whole machine for controlling the home and muzzling the foreign press, was entirely staffed by Jews.' (1)[*]

'There seemed not to be a single non-Jewish official in the whole outfit, and they were just the same Jews as you met in New York, Berlin, Vienna and Prague - well-manicured, well-fed, dressed with a touch of the dandy. I was told that the proportion of Jews in Government is small, but in this one department that I got to know intimately they seemed to have a monopoly, and I asked myself, where were the Russians?' (2)[*]

'How is it possible for the Jewish press to pretend that a connexion between Jews and Bolshevism is a malicious invention of the "anti-Semites"? That all Jews are not Bolsheviks and that all Bolsheviks are not Jews is of course obvious; but that Jews are playing a preponderating part in Bolshevism is absurd to deny.' (3)

'The same report publishes a list of seventy-six men prosecuted by the Committee on the charge of criminal anarchy in America at the beginning of 1920, of which the overwhelming majority are seen by their names to be Jewish.' (4) [-]

'These ninety thousand exiles constituted the heart of the approaching Bolshevik revolution. They were almost to the last man professional revolutionaries, and with few exceptions they were Jewish.' (5) [-]

'In addition to the general tendency to play down the influence and number of Russian revolutionary Jews due to antisemitic demagogy reaching back to tsarist times, research on Jewish participants in Populist organizations and parties has suffered from the preconceived idea that Populism, as an indigenous Russian ideology, was alien to the Jewish character both in Weltanschauung and revolutionary practice. Accordingly, Jewish historians have argued that this variant of Russian socialism held no attraction for Jews. Unlike latter-day Russian Social Democracy, which appealed to the Jewish psyche with its Marxist internationalism, messianic determinism, and proletarian univeralism, there was nothing in Populism a Jew could identify with. Hence, in the opinion of Lev Deich, Elias Tscherikower, and Leonard Shapiro, who have done most to shape our perceptions on the subject, the national particularlism, reactionary traditionalism, and archaic peasantism of the Russian Populists precluded meaning participation by Jews in the revolutionary movement of the 1870s and 1880s. This, they assert, is reflected in the supposedly miniscule Jewish involvement in the Populist circles and organizations of these two decades. Close investigation bears out none of this. My findings indicate that Jews flocked as much to the revolutionary standard of Populism as to that of Marxism later on; and they did so for the same motives, which were rooted in their Jewish upbringing and Jewish cosmopolitan desire to better the world.' (6)

'The number of Jews occupying high positions in the Soviet Government is probably larger than the Jewish community is entitled to either on account of its numbers or its higher education standard. But even in Russia, there are many Jewish anti-Bolsheviks; and several of the leading Commissars are very anti-Jewish. Chicherin is Russian, though several of his assistants are Jews. Derzhinsky, the head of the Extraordinary Commission, is either Russian or Polish, and none of the people whom I met in that institution were Jews. Derzhinsky's right-hand man, Mogilevsky, with whom I was brought into close and unpleasant relations, is very anti-Jewish, and is at present trying to get hold of a Jew in Moscow who supplied Mr. North, it is alleged, with large sums of money for anti-Bolshevik agitation.

There must be many such anti-Bolshevik Jews who are probably opposed to Lenin on account of his ingenious scheme of inflating the currency until money becomes valueless. One can quite understand that a race with the financial ability of the Hebrews should dislike such a project.'
(7) [+]

'"Those at present active in nuclei work are primarily English, Jewish, and German, and here and there Finnish comrades. From the other nationalities there are very few who participate in this work.' (8)

'After leaving the Embassy I went to the Ours and had luncheon with Frasso, who had been at the Duma till 5 yesterday. He had nothing new to tell. In the afternoon found Madame Polovtsov just going out, so we went together down the Morskaia - Jewish students were pulling down the eagles over the shops and over the Yacht Club.' (9) [+-]

'As I happened to be at the last representation of the Imperial ballet, I went this evening to the first representation of the ballet under the new order. I was there before the curtain went up, at 7, an hour earlier than formerly. In the ground floor Imperial stage box on the left, where the Grand Dukes always sat, were several lady dancers and one man. Over their head, in the first box, where the children of the Grand Dukes used to go, were a Jew and a Jewess.' (10) [+-]

'The Jews are working openly for Germany. They are buying up house property, which is being sold much below its value for fear of worse days.' (11) [+-]

'In Budapest the working masses became threateningly restless; near the communal food-shops and other stores the waiting crowd was no longer patient and silent. I stopped often at the edge of the pavement and listened to what they said. The shabby, waiting rows of tired people struggled for hours between two wedges. In the shop the profiteers sucked their life blood; in the street paid agitators incited them cunningly, clandestinely against "the gentle-folk." "If it all depends on us how long we stand we stand it. After all we are the majority, not they."

The crowd approved and failed to notice that the Semitic race was only to be found at the two ends of the queue, and that not a single representative of it could be seen as a buyer among the crowding, the poor, and the starving... This was symbolical, a condensed picture of Budapest. The sellers, the agitators were Jews. The buyers and the misguided were the people of the capital.'
(12) [#]

'As if executing a pre-arranged plan, at an inaudible command, the Jewish leaders of the trade-unions, the Jewish officials of the workmen's clubs, usurped authority.' (13) [#-]

'A goodly proportion of the hundred Jews who came out of Germany with Lenin, and the hundres who came from Chicago, deserve to be included in this gallery, for they undoubtedly held Russia under their sway.' (14) [+-]


(1) Douglas Reed, 1938, 'Insanity Fair', 1st Edition, Jonathan Cape: London, p. 195. Reed might be considered by some to be an unreliable source in view of his later well-documented anti-Semitic writing (i.e. ‘Far and Wide’ and 'The Controversy of Zion'), but when he wrote 'Insanity Fair' and his other travel books in the 1930s: he was if anything rather pro-jewish as one can ascertain from reading his writings, which are still freely available on the antiquarian book market. I would assert that we have no reason to doubt Reed's writings or his observations since as one can ascertain from the quoted passages above: they might seem overly anti-Semitic, but when one looks at the qualifiers in his sentences one finds that he is actually giving the jews the benefit of the doubt.
(2) Ibid.
(3) Nesta Webster, n.d., [1924], 'Secret Societies and Subversive Movements', 1st Edition, Omni: Palmdale, p. 387. Webster is often defamed by odious critics (who usually haven't bothered to read or accurately represent her views, which were more rational and well-researched than they present them as), but as she worked purely from secondary sources her work was heavily coloured by what information she had to hand, which is why I cite only those passages that have lasting value.
(4) Ibid. The report Webster is referring to is the Lusk Report of 1920. I have marked this to be of questionable reliability, because of the methodology that Webster professes to use [i.e. 'jewish names'], which is not a cogent general indicator of racial origin.
(5) Frank Britton, 1954, 'Behind Communism', 1st Edition, Self-Published (possibly 'American Nationalists'): Unknown, p. 45. This is the repetition of an old 'White Guard' rumour that gained currency in anti-Communist and anti-Semitic circles. It has widely been discredited, but I provide it for the sake of completeness and because any collection of this kind without noting this widely-credited rumour would certainly be remiss. A variant of this rumour can be seen cited in Revilo Oliver, 1966, 'All America Must Know The Terror That Is Upon Us', 1st Edition, Conservative Viewpoint: Bakersfield, p. 15 n. 1; pp. 22-23 n. 21. It is worth noting that Oliver notes the same sources used to substantiate this rumour by Denis Fahey (who Oliver cites as well) and Nesta Webster (Britton likely is using these widely-circulated sources as factual cribs as well).
(6) Erich Haberer, 2004, [1995], 'Jews and Revolution in Nineteenth-Century Russia', 1st Edition, Cambridge University Press: New York, p. xii. This is a summary of Haberer's findings that he himself gives in his preface, which serves to indicate in a short, useful quotation the long evidenced argument he makes (but it does not include the qualifiers that he himself makes for which you will have to either purchase or borrow this excellent work).
(7) Francis McCullagh, 1922, 'A Prisoner of the Reds: The Story of a British Officer Captured in Siberia', 1st Edition, E. P. Dutton: New York, pp. 267-268.
(8) R. Whitney, 1924, 'Reds in America', 1st Edition, The Beckwith Press: New York, p. 135. This is a quotation from the second captured report from the raid on the Communist Party convention at Bridgman, Michigan on the 22nd August 1922. For additional confirmation of this general point see Pierre Huss, George Carpozi Jr., 1965, 'Red Spies in the UN', 1st Edition, Coward-McCann: New York particularly the case of the jewess Judith Coplon on pp. 16-40 (whose husband and family own and a well-know prosperous jewish legal practice in New York to this day [Coplon was never imprisoned for the espionage she carried out for the Soviet Union on the basis of legal technicalities]) [also mentioned by Britton, Op. Cit., p. 76]. Also see Whittaker Chambers, 1952, 'Witness', 1st Edition, Random House: New York, which is Chambers' semi-autobiographical exposition of Soviet espionage in the United States (Chambers had himself been an important spy and helped run a major Soviet spy ring with Elisabeth Bentley: hence can be reasonably relied upon) and contains many accounts of jewish Soviet spies in the United States. Chambers' own wife (one Esther Shemitz), according to Britton (Op. Cit., p 91), was a communist jewess and this seems to be probable even if I have been unable to undeniably confirm it [Britton, as usual, cites no sources and doesn't even mention Chambers' wife's name, but I have found it via an internet search].
(9) Anon., 1919, 'The Russian Diary of an Englishman: Petrograd, 1915-1917', 1st Edition, Robert McBride: New York p. 120. I have listed this as unreliable, because the author is unnamed and hence I cannot confirm whether this account is really first-hand or whether it is a literary invention (a bit like your average 'holocaust survivor' tale if you will). The passage in question states (on p. 119) that it is from Friday the 16th of March 1917: it does however seem to be a genuine diary as opposed to a literary invention (but without close investigation one cannot know for sure).
(10) Ibid., p. 137. The entry is listed as that for Wednesday the 28th of March 1917.
(11) Ibid., pp. 156-157. The entry is listed as that for the 20th of April 1917 on p. 152. It is necessary to note that the claim that 'the Jews are working openly for Germany' is probably a veiled reference to the anti-war agitation that was being conducted at the time, which was probably of a socialistic, populist, liberal and/or marxist nature (i.e. the logic is: if one is a pacifist then one is working for German victory in the First World War). It should not be taken literally. It is also unlikely to be a reference to Lenin's 'closed carriage' through Germany to agitate against the war in Russia as Lenin was not at this point an important individual, but only a minor player in Russian politics.
(12) Cecile Tormay, 1923, 'An Outlaw's Diary: Revolution', 1st Edition, Philip Allan: London, p. 45.
(13) Ibid., p. 88. I have marked this passage as potentially unreliable, because Tormay suggests throughout, but particularly in this quoted passage, that the jews were as a group behind the whole communist revolution in Hungary and this is a discredited (not to mention unrealistic) point of view, but it does have some truth to it in that jews were proportionally higher in the short-lived Communist coup in Hungary by Bela Kuhn than in the Soviet Union of the early years (one finds this view reflected by Tormay on p. 89 where she lists jewish communist leaders and jewish aides she knows of to evidence her thesis. I have not listed these as they are probably conjecture as opposed to knowns from her experiences).
(14) Robert Wilton, 1920, 'The Last Days of the Romanovs: From 15th March, 1917', 1st Edition, Thornton Butterworth: London, p. 27. Wilton is not a reliable source, but as he was present in Russia during the communist revolution it is worth including appropriate parts of his testimony as it is a legitimate, if very inaccurate, source (for the same reasons, outlined in n. 5 above, that I have quoted Frank Britton's work). For a more detailed review of the problems of Wilton's book please see our article: 'A Judeo-Bolshevik Debacle' (http://semiticcontroversies.blogspot...k-debacle.html).

Part II

'To-day one meets the citizens of all countries on the steamers, especially Russians on ships which ply between America and Russia. Since the Russian revolution thousands of Russians have crossed the Pacific and these men and women who were residents of New York, Seattle, Chicago and Newark have flocked to the land of their birth to become officials and businessmen. One of the Bolshevist commissars of Khabarovsk, the capital of the Amur, was a Chicago lawyer. Petrograd and Moscow were filled with political agitators from New York and New Jersey. In nearly every Siberian city were refugees from cities on our western coast. On the Nippon Maru were more of these Russian-Americans en route to their native land, Bolshevist, Menshevist, ad Monarchist, plotter and peaceful citzen.

Walking the deck one evening I met a young Russian Jew from one of the communicating suburbs of New York. He had been in the United States three years, and was now en route to Russia in search for his family which he had left in a small town near Moscow.

"I don't know ver my vife iss," he said. "I half not heard about her or my children since April."

"You have an American passport?" I asked.

"No, a Russian."

"Were you in sympathy with the revolution?"

"Zertainly," was his quick answer. He was a keen, determined fellow and his English, while not perfect, showed that he had been utilizing every opportunity to improve it in his humble circumstances because he had been working in a junk-shop near Newark, and had saved five thousand dollars in three years!'
(15) [+]

'Having feasted and entertained us to good Russian music, admonished us and put our passports in order, the kind-hearted Gowkovsky packed us off to Petrograd in charge of half a dozen or more of his trusty henchmen. Several of these were Jews - clever, brainy, shrewd, dogmatic; excellent linguists, perfect interpreters.

One of the facts we marked very soon in our adventurous career was the large number of Jews who occupy positions of trust and influence in the Revolutionary Administration. We remarked upon it to the Jews themselves. We were informed that only two of the seventeen People's Commissars were Jews, but that very considerable numbers indeed were employed in administrative posts, both nationally and locally, and by the Extraordinary Commission. As the membership and activity of large numbers of Jews is a feature of continental Socialist societies, particularly in Central and Eastern europe, it is worth considering for a moment why this should be so.'
(16) [+]

'Said one of the best-known Jewish leaders in Russia to me when I had gently complained of too much discipline and too little freedom:

"But the Russian people are like children. They are not educated. They know nothing. They have been accustomed for centuries to slavery and dictation. Would you have us allow them to destroy themselves by their own incapacity and inexperience? Would you give a vote to each of those millions of ignorant peasants? It would be like putting a knife into the hands of a baby."

How familiar it all sounded to me, as reminiscences of the Woman Suffrage fight in England came to my mind, and I recalled the fact that this baby and carving-knife argument was one of the pet excuses for denying women their freedom.

None the less it is true that the Russian people in the main are unaccustomed to freedom, and by their nature and temperament are proper material for the exercise of power by the educated, dominating Jew. It would not be fair, however, to neglect to say that of those persons who spoke to me privately in condemnation of the Bolsheviki, a very considerable number, if not the majority, were also Jews. One is driven to the conclusion that it is the activity and strength of his mind, and not necessarily a proclivity for Bolshevist theory which is chiefly responsible for the commanding position of the Jew in the political affairs of Europe in general and of Russia in particular.

Another Jew, a fair-haired, blue-eyed Jew from the United States, met us on the Russian frontier, and offered us greetings in the name of the Soviet Republic. He was an interesting personality, whose history as a leader of strikes in America he unfolded to us on the journey from the frontier to Petrograd.'
(17) [+]

'One of the very ablest of the People's Commissars is the Acting-Commissar for Ways and Communications, Sverdloff. We travelled in his company from Nijini-Novgorod to Astrakhan. He it was who kindly put at our disposal the train de luxe which carried our sick friend from Saratov to Reval, and whose considerate kindness on the ship enabled us to save his life.

He is in appearance slight and pale, of Jewish birth, with dark expressive eyes and rather autocratic manner. He has been many times in prison for his political faith, although his revolutionary record appears to have been less lurid than that of his brother who recently died of the pestilence. He was in exile in America and England for some years, and studied with acute intelligence American business methods, particularly American business discipline.'
(18) [+]

'To begin with, these excesses are not organized by Russians, but by Jews and they are carried out by Letts and soldiers of the Central Powers in Russian uniform.' (19) [+-]

'We arrived at Divisional Headquarters the following day, and were lodged in the loft of a warehouse. The ground floor was a guard room, the second floor was a place of detention for Russian soldiers, and our loft was shared by spies - mostly Jews.' (20) [+-]

'The hospital kitchen was in the hands of a Polish Jew and his wife. They had begun the war with almost nothing, and they were now said to be worth thousands of pounds. No money by the kitchen but some stuck to their palms. His staff collected money for a water carrier, and gave it to him to disburse. He put it in his own pocket, and used to pay the man out of Government funds. His soldiers were so angry with him that at the outbreak of the Revolution he was one of the first they impeached. He was sent to Irkutsk to await his trial, but the case dragged on interminably. After the Bolsheviks came in he was released, and when I last heard of him he was occupying some position under their Government.' (21) [+]

'The Bolshevik leaders themselves can be divided into two classes, idealists and adventurers. Some of them are Jews, hiding under a Russian alias and taking a revengeful toll for their centuries of oppression; others are Letts, Poles, Armenians, or members of the conquered races.' (22) [-]

'It is not the fact that all Jews are Bolshevik; on he contrary, very many of them have suffered bitterly from the terror. This could not be otherwise, when it is reflected that the legal profession and journalism in Russia are largely recruited from among men of Jewish blood, and that the Press and the law courts have been abolished by the Bolsheviks. The journalists especially did good and dangerous work for Russia until they were finally muzzled. But it is the fact that almost all the Bolshevik leaders are Jews or have intimate Jewish connections.' (23) [-]

'Spies of the Extraordinary Commission for Combating Counter-revolution, the mechanism for maintaining and spreading terror, receive a salary and ten per cent of their victim's property. By such means the Russian nation has been reduced to a condition of complete subservience to the rule of a comparatively small number of men of almost exclusively Jewish extraction, aliens, that is, in blood, in education, in ideals, and supported by alien force. The extent to which this is generally recognised is shown by the common gibe in Petrograd: "Are you a Commissar or do you belong to the Orthodox religion?"' (24) [-]

'I asked a Jewish acquaintance to get my ticket for me. How this remarkable race manages, no one knows, but it is a fact that Jews are always able to get railway tickets, and never have to stand in food queues. And, sure enough, on the morrow I had a ticket to Saratov and a reserved seat to Moscow without having to pay more than a few roubles above the proper rate.' (25) [+]

'It is noticeable that under Bolshevik conditions, hardly anyone but Jews and Red Army people travel.' (26) [+-]

'The Russian Jews have always hated the Government; they did much to forment the Revolution, and played a leading part in bringing about the subsequent disasters.' (27)

'The very moment the Duma elected an Executive Committee, a Council of the Petrograd workmen sprang up as by magic; and it is to be noted that most of its members were Jews, some of them with assumed Russian names.' (28) [-]

'The 3rd squadron very soon underwent a change, due to the influence of proceedings at Rovno, where the population, which consisted chiefly of Jews was indulging in noisy celebrations of the Revolution.' (29) [-]


(15) Carl Ackerman, 1919, 'Trailing The Bolsheviki: Twelve Thousand Miles with the Allies in Siberia', 1st Edition, Charles Scribner's Sons: New York, p. 7. It should be noted that the jew Ackerman quotes goes on to say on p. 8 that he is 'not a socialist', but this is still useful in demonstrating the sympathy for far left politics among jews who were professed (in this case implied) capitalists in economic ideology.
(16) Mrs Philip Snowden, 1920, 'Through Bolshevik Russia', 1st Edition, Cassell and Company: London, pp. 27-28. The author was the Viscountess of Snowden when this book was written and this particular passage leads into a short apology on behalf of jews and an attempt to justify Snowden's observation of the number of jews who were in ranking positions in the Bolshevik administration via suggesting that they were the majority of the 'educated Russians'.
(17) Ibid., pp. 29-30.
(18) Ibid., pp. 124-125.
(19) Hereward Price, 1919, 'Boche & Bolshevik: Experiences of an Englishman in the German Army and in Russian Prisons', 1st Edition, John Murray: London, p. 96. I have noted this source as being potentially unreliable, because Price seems to just repeat what he had heard, rather than what he had seen, on this point.
(20) Ibid., p. 100. I have noted this source as being potentially unreliable, because Price doesn't indicate how he knew the spies were jews, which weakens his credibility as a source.
(21) Ibid., p. 163.
(22) G. E. Raine, Edouard Luboff, 1920, 'Bolshevik Russia', 1st Edition, Nisbet & Co: London, p. 48. I have marked this as a potentially unreliable source on the grounds that it seems to refer to the 'Commissar Lists', which were commonly reprinted and believed at the time of writing and publishing.
(23) John Pollock, 1919, 'The Bolshevik Adventure', 1st Edition, Constable and Company: London, p. xx. I have marked this as a potentially unreliable source on the grounds that it seems to refer to the 'Commissar Lists', which were commonly reprinted and believed at the time of writing and publishing.
(24) Ibid. p. 104.
(25) Ibid. p. 208.
(26) Ibid. p. 217. I have marked this as a potentially unreliable source on the grounds that Pollock does not detail how he knew the non-Red Army railways users were jews and hence damages his credibility.
(27) Baron P. Graevenitz, 1918, 'From Autocracy to Bolshevism', 1st Edition, George Allen & Unwin: London, p. 19.
(28) Ibid. p. 84. I have marked this as a potentially unreliable source on the grounds that it seems to refer to the 'Commissar Lists', which were commonly reprinted and believed at the time of writing and publishing.
(29) Ibid., p. 97.

Part III

'I can imagine that in New York and throughout the United States the Jews are holding pow-wows all night long now that they have been granted free and equal rights in Russia.'
(30) [+]

'I then asked Boris to take me to the Jewish market. This is one of the sights of Petrograd. It covers about four blocks and is full of little shops owned by Jews. You can buy everything under the sun there. Everything stolen is brought there, and if you want to buy a machine-gun, a rifle, or anything else, you can find it. This is one reason why the Jews in Russia have such a hard time. They will buy anything they think they can make money on. The people say they are buying up army guns and that they are in the pay of the Germans.

I saw thousands of soldiers in the old clothes section selling their uniforms, underwear, shoes and whatever they had. You can trade a pair of new shoes for a pair not so good and get a little money on the side. We spent a whole morning in this place. I looked at a great many pieces of jewelry. Most of this is loot, stolen during the revolution. I saw a watch that had blood-stains on it. A diamond necklace I could have bought for one-tenth of its value.'
(31) [+]

'Jewish Chaplains are now at the front and we also see daily Jewish officers in the army. At the front I have seen thousands of Jews in uniform and ten per cent of the Death Battalions are Jews.' (32) [+-]

'My husband, without trying any byways or protections, intrigues or bribes, had merely spoken with the hotel man who looked after such documents for those living in the house. They had ended by driving together to Smolny one morning, to ask the permission necessary, before applying to the municipal police for passports to go beyond the frontiers. At Smolny, where they had been scarcely noticed, a soldier had directed them to a large room, on the door of which they saw written "Passports." Here they had knocked, been admitted, and found themselves opposite a Jewess, who wrote out the application which Cantacuzene had signed.' (33) [+]

‘To-day Gebhard lunched with Graf Oppersdorff to meet the Russian revolutionary representative Joffe. It was very interesting, of course, although they had to avoid politics. Gebhard describes him as a clever, ordinary international Jew, who has been all over the world and speaks every language. He praised England tremendously, admiring especially the methods of English politics and colonization.

How curious it is to note the immense power which a handful of Jews have suddenly gained in the country which until now was the seat of absolute despotism, and where for centuries the Jews have suffered such a martyrdom of cruel oppression. It almost looks sometimes as if our little continent were destined to be the bone for America and the Jews to pick.’
(34) [-]

‘I recently became well acquainted with Mr. Morris Gordin, an idealistic Russian-born Jew, who came to Chicago years ago and was a protégé in radicalism of Jane Addams’ Hull House. (His statement that no one could get far in the Red movement without the approval of the Hull House group supports my own impressions from research.) From Hull House, he was sent to live at the home of a University of Chicago professor whose heiress wife was supplying $1,000 a week to Red strikers, for further tutelage. He organized for the pro-Soviet Amalgamated Clothing Workers’ Union under Sidney Hillman, now of Roosevelt’s National Labor Board (see pages 104 and 290 of “The Red Network”), and left from the Communist Party of Chicago to go to Russia, where he acted as Press Commissar of the Comintern and as a Party leader in the Ukraine.’ (35)

‘Under Roosevelt’s inspiration and promises of rapid unionization under Section 81 of the NRA, the A. F. of L. took back the left wing pro-Soviet Amalgamated Clothing Workers’ Union headed by Sidney Hillman., Roosevelt’s Labor Board appointee, which had been ejected by the A. F. of L. in 1914 for radicalism.

The subsequent election of a Socialist Party leader, David Dubinsky, head of the socialist International Ladies Garment Workers’ Union, member of the Jewish Socialist Verband, formerly exiled to Siberia for Red revolutionary activities, as vice-president of the A. F. of L., was a lamentable, historic turn to the left.’

‘Another or Mrs. Roosevelt’s fellow committee members was Mary Van Kleeck, associate with Communist Party leaders on various committees and author of a Communist Party pamphlet in conjunction with Earl Browder, secretary of the Communist Party; another was Russian-born Jacob Billikopf, active in Jewish organizations, trustee of “The Nation” (revolutionary Socialist magazine) and “The Survey” (socialistic magazine), trustee of Harvard University (censured for its communistic trend and Government-supported), vice president of the socialistic American Association for Old Age Security, and now according to the communist Daily Worker (5/6/36), chairman of Roosevelt’s National Labor Relations Board. The Daily Worker reported that he was to preside at a meeting of the communist Friends of the Soviet Union, 5/8/36, at which James Waterman Wise (son of Rabbi Stephen S. Wise) of the communist People’s Press was to speak on the subject “The Jew in Soviet Russia”.’ (37)

‘It is not strange that the “spade work” which was done by the immigrant Red revolutionary, Russian-Jewish exiles, who in 1915, over twenty years ago, had already organized 500,000 of their race in the United States, is also bearing fruit, and that this long-time agitation for radicalism in Jewish organizations’ should be giving rise to the unjust impression that every Jew is naturally a Communist-Socialist.

It was 300,000 of this Socialist Jewish bloc who organized support for La Follette and Wheeler in 1924 on the Socialist-Progressive ticket, which polled nearly five million votes, and it is this same bloc which is now backing Roosevelt, led by Socialists Sidney Hillman, David Dubinsky (exiled to Siberia for Russian revolutionary activities), etc, in Labor’s Non-Partisan League.’

‘Thus the Morning Freiheit, alone, catering solely to Communist Yiddish-speaking Jews, claimed then about one-fifth of the paid circulation of the entire Communist press.

When a well-meaning Christian writer attempted to combat anti-Semitism by stating that the Jews play a negligible role in the Communist party, he supported this with the worst possible argument that the Jewish Federation of the Communist Party has but 15,000 members, since, if this is correct, it means that of the 40,000 members admitted by the Party in 1936 over one-third are Jewish.

But, as Francis Ralston Welsh has said, even if most of the Communists are Jews, it does not follow that most of the Jews are Communists.’

‘It was no accident that German fascist opposition to Communism became anti-Semitic, whereas Italian fascist opposition did not. The Reds in Italy, unlike Germany, were not predominately Jewish.’ (40) [-]

‘To quote the “Call of youth”, organ of the youth branch of the Jewish Socialist Workmen’s Circle (March, 1936):

“A great percentage of young Jews in the Soviet are officials, and are thus arousing the envy of our groups of the Russian population who still remember the ‘rightless’ status of the Jews in the former regime.”’

‘“In the spring of 1933 some 75 families, principally Jewish, hailing from New York, Chicago, Detroit, and other cities took over some 9,000 aches of reclaimed land, of the Owosso Sugar Beat Plantation, near Alicia, Michigan, and organized the Sunrise Cooperative Farm. The present secretary of the commune is Joseph Cohen, who is its motivating power, and principal spokesman.’ (42)

‘Socialism has made terrible inroads among the Jews.’ (43)

‘“Parvus” is the pseudonym of one of the most sinister figures in the history of the Socialist movement, Dr. Alexander Helfandt. Born at Odessa, of German-Jewish descent, he studied in Germany and in the early eighteen-nineties attained prominence as a prolific and brilliant contributor to the German Socialist review, Die Neue Zeit. He was early “exiled” from Russia, but it was suspect by a great many Socialists that in reality his “exile” was simply a device to cover employment in the Russian Secret Service as a spy and informer, for which the prestige he had gained in Socialist circles was a valuable aid.’ (44)

‘The headquarters of the Mission, then, arrived at Andijan, in the train, early one morning, when nobody was about, only to be pounced upon by a patrol of Bolsheviks, commanded by a Galician Jew. The truculent tone and manner of this wretch made ti quite clear to us that he had telegraphic instructions from the Tashkend Soviet to “double-cross” us.’ (45) [+]

‘In the revolution his brother was barbarously murdered by a Jew commissar, and now he himself was in our service: officially described as “umptieth Tiflis Grenadiers, attached Guides.”’
(46) [+-]

‘The real seat of trouble at this time was at Petrograd. There the German agents swarmed. One could hear them talk at the street-corners, in every assembly, and in every committee. By this time they were quite brazen in their statements. The most radical of these agents were Russian Jews who had returned from America.’ (47) [+]

‘I was in the hands of two sailors, a soldier and the Jewish chief agents of the Extraordinary Committee to Combat the Counter-Revolution, which is the Bolshevik’s chief weapon for maintaining and spreading the Red Reign of Terror.’ (48) [+]

‘At the Foreign Office we met a Jew named Contorovitch, who spoke English fluently. He furnished me with rooms at the Foreign Office Guest House at No. 10 Mala Haritonofskaya, which formerly was the home of a wealthy German merchant.’ (49) [+]

‘In arranging for my passport to be vised for England I came into close contact with one Rosenberg, a Jew, who had spent several years in London as a master tailor in an East End sweatshop. In 1917 he was secretary to Raymond Robins of the American Red Cross in Petrograd. When I arrived in Moscow he was in charge of the Western Section of the Foreign Office, and as the agent of the Vetchika had the handling of all foreigners in Russia.’ (50) [+]


(30) Donald Thompson, 1918, 'Donald Thompson in Russia', 1st Edition, The Century Co.: New York, pp. 123-124.
(31) Ibid., pp. 166-167. The mention of the rumour that the jews were in league with the Germans should not be taken literally, but rather as the idea that the jews were natural traitors and would look to anyone or anything who could better their personal and/or collective situation (i.e. hence 'in league with the Germans' who were then, or rather had been until recently, 'the enemy').
(32) Ibid. p. 282. I have marked this source as potentially problematic, because Thompson is telling us about his knowledge of the front, but does not tell us how he knew these things or how he could tell that 'thousands of jews were in uniform'. This is likely second-hand information that Thompson is passing along as first-hand information (and also applies to his assertion about the percentage of jews in the 'Death Squads').

(35) Elizabeth Dilling, 1936, ‘The Roosevelt Red Record And Its Background’, 1st Edition, Self-Published: Chicago, p. 8. It is worth noting that Sidney Hillman who is mentioned by Dilling in the quotation was also jewish and a prominent ‘labour activist’ in the United States. One should also note that when Dilling wrote ‘The Roosevelt Red Record And Its Background’ she was overtly sympathetic to jews and had in fact destroyed a prominent anti-Communist organisation, the Paul Reveres of Colonel Edwin Hadley, because she regarded its founder, Hadley, as an anti-Semite (which is debateable, but he certainly had a marked aversion to jews and was an adherent [possibly indirectly] of the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion having either read Henry Ford’s ‘The International Jew’ or L. Fry’s ‘Waters Flowing Eastwards’, which put forth the theories he uses in some of his somewhat obscure pamphlets) and could not work with him, because of it. That she changed her views later and published anti-Semitic work in the 1950s and 1960s is irrelevant to her value as a secondary source.

(37) Ibid., p. 79. Rabbi Stephen S. Wise was a very prominent Zionist Reform rabbi in the United States and among his many claims to fame is the fact that he co-founded the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People). For more information about Wise and his views see his autobiography Stephen Wise, 1949, ‘Challenging Years: The Autobiography of Stephen Wise’, 1st Edition, G. P. Putnam’s Sons: New York, which is rather revealing. It also contains some useful quotations and illuminating comments.
(38) Ibid., p. 156. We should note that the source for the 500,000 jews (given on pp. 158-159 of the same work) is the 1917-1918 ‘Jewish Communal Register’, pp. 1447-1454, and her assertion about the 300,000 jews supporting La Follette and Wheeler is sourced from the ‘New York Times’ of the 22nd of July 1924, which is stated on p. 98 of the same work. We should incidentally remind ourselves that Hillman and Dubinsky were both jewish. It is also worth noting that later on pp. 156-161 Dilling describes jewish anti-Communists and her support of them as well as an odd conspiracy theory about communist jews deliberately encouraging anti-Semitism (so nobody can reasonably accuse her of anti-Semitism at this point in her career).
(39) Ibid., p. 160. Dilling here is using as her source Hamilton Fish’s findings in House Report 2290 in 1930.
(40) Ibid., p. 161. I have marked this quotation as potentially problematic because the KPD, to which we may presume Dilling is alluding, was not predominately Jewish: although many of those involved in its founding were. For an overtly sympathetic version of these events, which adequately covers the numerous jews involved in the marxist risings and the foundation of the KPD, please see Chris Harman’s, 1997, [1982], ‘The Lost Revolution: Germany 1918-23’, 2nd Edition, Bookmarks: London.

I have marked this quotation as potentially unreliable, because it is not explained how Blacker or Abdulla Shah (the man whose brother had been murdered) knew that the commissar was a jew and with the ‘White’ propaganda asserting that nearly all commissars were jews at this time: it would be normal for both Blacker and Shah to label the commissar a jew without knowing whether he (or she) was or not.

Part IV

‘As the Bolsheviks also believed in violence, the Bolsheviks and Maximalists formed an alliance. It is known that many of the old Terrorists were Jews, clever unscrupulous men who made a profession of this business. They were now in power in the Petrograd Soviet or Council, bearing Russian names.’ (51) [-]

‘On the second day the bank staff again appeared outside the premises, and after discussing the situation left for home. This took place day after day without intermission, whilst there suddenly appeared a Jewish commissar with several assistants, who announced himself to be in charge of the bank, and spent several hours each day in the manager’s cabinet. This individual was, however, quite inaccessible, unless the guards were at the moment surrounded by a crowd and in such a heated argument with a number of outsiders as to fail to notice your entry by stealth.’ (52) [+-]

‘To the position of textile president was appointed a workman who was known to be a former textile worker, his first secretary and most of the staff were Jews. Similar conditions prevailed in other departments.’ (53) [+]

‘When it is remembered that the people mainly responsible for all poor Russia has suffered are for the most part Jews with changed names it is perhaps hardly surprising that the greatest pacifist has in those parts become fiercely vengeful against those morally responsible for all his trouble, and without whose intellectual powers the whole show would have long since collapsed.’ (54) [+-]

‘In autumn, 1946, Archbishop Stepinac was arrested and placed on trial. He was accused of treachery committed in the war by collaboration with the Germans and the Quisling Croatian government of Pavelic and of approving the cruelties of the Ustase against the civilian population. His defense was as bold and courageous as his preaching. He did not shrink before the threats. The court which was presided over by a young Communist judge, whose Jewish mother Stepinac has personally saved from the Nazi fury, condemned him to sixteen years of hard labor in prison.’ (55)

‘Among other deeds of the NKVD during this initial period of the war was the execution of two Polish-Jewish leaders, Henryk Erlich and Victor Alter. Erlich served on the Warsaw City Council and edited a Polish-Jewish newspaper; he and Alter, a writer, were also leaders of the General Jewish Workers Union in Poland. Although Socialist-orientated rather than Communist, Erlich and Alter had been advocating that Poland and the West collaborate with the Soviet Union in foreign affairs in view of the Nazi danger.’ (56)

‘The atheist movement has become a mass movement even beyond the confines of the Soviet Union. A number of facts go to prove that this movement is gaining ground also in other countries. A growth in the antireligious movement is observed particularly among the great masses of working class Jews in Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, Belgium, England, America, Germany and other countries. In Warsaw, for example, on the Jewish New Year’s Day, 15 mass demonstrations were held, which were dispersed by the police.’

‘On January 15, 1936, Mikhail N. Tukhachevsky, Marshall of the Soviet Union and Assistant People’s Commissar of Defense, presented the following report to the Central Executive Committee of the U. S. S. R. Eighteen months later, he was shot, along with seven other leading Russian generals, for alleged conspiracy with the Nazis. The absurdity of this charge may be partially judged from the fact that 2 of the 8 generals were Jews.’

‘While the following petition declared that not a single Jew would die without vengeance being taken upon the Nazis, it carefully neglected to state in whose behalf this vengeance would be wreaked. In a study made for the American Jewish Committee, Solomon Schwarz shows how the Soviet Government not only did not encourage Jews to flee before the advancing Nazi armies, but actually prevented more than a third of them from escaping to the “security” of Siberia and central Asia. Neither did it make any serious effort to counteract the flood of anti-Semite propaganda which the Nazis poured into the occupied territory of the U. S. S. R.

Schwarz further establishes the fact that claims made on behalf of the August 24, 1941, Moscow Conference were unfounded. Once the Soviet-controlled Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee has been milked dry for the benefit of the Great Russians, it was completely suppressed. According to Igor Gouzenko, the Soviet code clerk who defected to the Canadian Government on September 5, 1945 (this section, exhibit No. 46), secret directives issued in Moscow had ordered the removal of Jews from influential positions in the Soviet Union at the very same time that foreign Jews were being exploited as expendable espionage agents.’

‘Also according to statements made to me by Tim Shay, his relationship toward the end of my stay here in Detroit, with the Communist Party became a little strained. It seemed that an argument developed between Tim Shay and several members, functionaries of district 7 of the Communist Party, U.S.A., State of Michigan. Shay contended that the Jewish people were taking over the top-level jobs in the national and State organizations, and at a local level, too. He felt that the Jewish people were attempting to use the Communist Party as a political party for their own interests, and he had gone to the district and had quite an argument with Helen Allison. She threatened to have him cited for anti-Semitism and expelled from the party.

Of course, Shay backed down and from then on, he was dissatisfied, and there was quite an amount of rumbling.

Milton Freeman, F-r-e-e-m-a-n, was a member of the Midtown Club of the Communist Party, and his address at that time was 531 Illinois Street, Detroit, Mich.

Milton Freeman, F-r-e-e-m-a-n, was a member of the Midtown Club of the Communist Party, was the husband of Sis Cunningham, and during his stay here in Detroit was employed by the Detroit Times as a reporter.

Carmelia Fordham was press director of the East Side Council of district 7, Communist Party, State of Michigan.

Harry Glassgold was a member of the Midtown Club of the Communist Party, district 7, and also –’
(60) [#]

‘I was then president of the Jewish Peoples Fraternal Order and was very glad to take that opportunity to speak on that question because anti-Semitism was a crime against the state in the Soviet Union, and I felt that the Jewish people had been treated extraordinarily well in the Soviet Union, and so I was very glad of the opportunity to express that point of view.’ (61) [+J]

‘The centre decided to send a delegation to make this proposal to Soviet military command now advancing rapidly eastward; and it prudently invited the leaders of the Irkutsk Bolsheviks, Krasnoshchekov, to accompany the delegation. Krasnoshchekov, who was of Russian Jewish birth, had spent many years in Chicago and returned to Siberia after the February revolution.’ (62)

‘Krasnoshchekov, laying down his diplomatic role, became prime minister and minister for foreign affairs in the Far Eastern Government. One of his associates was “Bill” Shatov, a well-known American revolutionary leader, also of Russian Jewish birth.’ (63)

‘It is indeed not certain that, when lists of members of “national” governments are produced showing a majority of Russian names, the bearers of those names were necessarily Russians; Russian names, and names with Russians forms, were current among many of the non-Russian nationalities. But there are authenticated cases such as the appointment of Dimanshtein, the Jewish member of the collegium of Narkomnats, as a member of the first Kazakh military-revolutionary committee, and of Vainshtein, one of the leaders of the Jewish Bund, as first president of the TsIK of the Bashkir Autonomous SSR; and these were certainly not isolated instances in the earlier years, when frequent transfers of party workers from one field to another were common practice.’ (64)

‘The very utmost that can be said is that the Jews are found among the prominent men of the Soviet Republic to an extent greater than the proportion they bear to the entire population.’ (65) [+]

‘There is a sort of Jacobin court which meets in a street whose name is now infamous to the ears of Russians – the Garochovaia, or Street of Peas. The chief judge is an obese Jewess with oiled locks who lolls on a seat while all around her press her crew of Soviet delegates, largely consisting of more or less self-designated members. This court is called “the extraordinary committee fighting the counter revolution, speculation and sabotage.”’ (66) [-]

‘J. Vostron, organizer of the Jewish Carpenters’ Union, later a Bolshevik organizer in Moscow.’

‘On Nov. 15, 1917, at Cooper Union, New York, Elmer Ronseberg, a Socialist Assemblyman elect, at a celebration of the Jewish Socialist Federation, prophesied a revolution in America.’ (68)

‘Here the first person we met was a young Jew from America, one of the followers of Emma Goldman, who was deported with her on the “Burford.” He had little sympathy for Marxism in any shape or form, but offered no alternative policy to suit Russian conditions.’ (69) [+]

‘Jews in Russia are now not at any rate subject to the persecutions of former days, and possibly on account of their big share in the inception of the Bolshevik movement a great many Jews are in control of Russia.’ (70) [+]

Part V

‘The leader of the rising is one Ochel, who was before the war a marriage broker, during the war a deserter, and who has lately published in Holland a violent pamphlet of his own. A Russian Jewess called Feuerstein, who came to Dusseldorf in some capacity connected with the Bolshevik news agency in Germany, is believed to provide a link with Petrograd.’ (71)

‘The names of the “Red Five” of Canada are R. T. Jones, of Winnipeg; W. A. Pritchard, of Vancouver; Joseph Knight, of Edmonton; V. R. Midgley, of Vancouver; and Joseph Maylor, of Cumberland. Most of them had been opponents to conscription. Warrants have been issued in June for the arrest, besides the first two, of Sam Blumenberg and B. Drivatkin, while the four aliens charged in July for sedition were Blumenberg, Kharitonov, Almazov and Schoppeltrel. The last five names are evidently Russian and Jewish. Inspector Guthrie, of the Toronto detective force, stated (end of May) that there were three Bolshevist societies in the city which were working secretly to encourage and maintain the industrial unrest. Of these the membership was 90 per cent foreign and 75 per cent Russian. They were careful not to appear on strike committees, but were busy sowing the seeds of revolution. There were, undoubtedly, similar organizations at Vancouver, Victoria, and Winnipeg.’ (72) [-]

‘The fact is that there were by far more than 450 Russian (Jewish) refugees who left America for Russia after the beginning of the Russian Revolution, to play a very important part in the development of Bolshevism in Russia. This fact explains many things which happened since. To make clear the part of American propagandists in Russia I may quote some testimonies of the American eye-witnesses given before the Senate Sub-committee. Here is the testimony of Mr. R. B. Dennis, a teacher in North-Western University, who had worked in Russia from November 1917 to September 1918, first for the American Y.M.C.A., and since April in the Consular Service. He had been all over Russia, in Rostov, Kharkoff, Moscow, Nijni Novgorod, and Petrograd. This is what he says:

… A thing that interested me very much was to discover a number of men in positions of power, Commissaries in the cities here and there in Russia, who had lived in America… in the industrial centres. I met a number of them, and I sat around and listened to attacks upon America that I would not take from any man in this country.

Senator Wolcott: In the main, of what nationality were they?

Mr. Dennis: Russian Hebrews. The men that I met there had lived in America, according to their stories, anywhere from three to twelve years…

Senator Overman: Are these people over there, who have lived in the United States, taking part in the Bolshevist movement?

Mr. Dennis: This is the thing that, in my opinion, backed up by opinions of other Americans, Englishmen, and Frenchmen with whom I talked when we got into Moscow, and were waiting there three weeks before we got out, and comparing notes, seems more interesting than the fact that they are there in positions of power; that these men were the most bitter and implacable men in Russia on the programme of the extermination, if necessary, of the bourgeois class. I never met a more implacable individual than a man that they called the War Commissary in Nijni-Novgorod; he has been in this country a number of years. Our general in Moscow was, that anywhere from 20 to 25 per cent of Commissaries in Soviet Russia had lived in America.

Senator Overman: Do you know any of them that have been naturalized in this country?

Mr. Dennis: No… I asked two, I recall, and they said they had not… One man, when I bade him good-bye, said: “Good-bye, I will see you in about ten years. We are coming over to America to pull off this same show.”

The same impressions are given by a man of a very different set of opinions, Mr. Raymond Robins, the head of the American Red Cross Mission in Russia, who functioned as unofficial representative of the American Ambassador, David K. Francis, with the Soviet Government. Says Mr. Robins:

There was another fact of importance. There returned to Russia, immediately at the beginning of the Revolution, great numbers of Russians from America, immigrants, both Gentile and Jew… They represented genuine honest men who had met America at America’s worst… then came back to Russia and spoke… [they] interpreted America as the capitalist’s heaven and the workman’s hell. That was perfectly false, but it carried influence, because those men spoke the language, and they came back with that interpretation; and man after man, when I was fighting against the rise of Bolshevism, said: “We do not care for your democracy; we do not want political democracy; we are going to have a real economic Revolution. We did not depose our Tsar to get twenty Tsars; we are not going to a Tsar of oil, a Tsar of coal, a Tsar of the railroads.”… To this group (of honest men) were added the agitators who were the paid agents of Germany or doctrinaire Socialists of the destructive groups, such as the I.W.W.

It is now known that it was Colonel Raymond Robins who, through his private secretary, one of these Russian Jews from America, Mr. Alexander Gumberg, got possession of the documents serving to reveal the German pecuniary connections with the Bolsheviks, both before and after the Russian Revolution. Mr. Gumberg’s antecedents are particularly interesting. To my knowledge (I have the following from a Russian witness closely connected with Mr. Gumberg), Mr. Gumberg had lived in New York for about fifteen years, and he contributed to the New World (Trotsky’s newspaper). His brother, known under the name of the Commissary Zorin; lived in the same room with Trotsky during his stay in New York, a year before the Revolution of 1917. This also explains the good relations between Mr. Robins and the Bolshevik authorities. Mr. Francis, in his testimony, wondered what Colonel Robins meant by saying: “I have the goods on my person,” while leaving Russia via Vladivostok. My informant helped me to solve the riddle: it was platinum brought from the Bolsheviks through the intermediary of Alexander Gumberg. Intimate relations of Colonel Robins with that group of the Bolsheviks are also proven by the fact that Radek, Trotsky, and his lady secretary, saw the Americans off in Moscow, and Radek said he hoped that the “materials” given to them, and filling up quite a railway carriage, would reach their destination, and that “soon they will accomplish the American revolution.”’

‘Alexander Gumberg, Robins’ secretary, performed in Moscow the functions of the chief censor of telegrams despatched by foreign journalists to America, England, and France. No telegram passed without being controlled by Gumberg. After his return to America, Gumberg was appointed president and chief managed of the Russian Telegraphic Agency (Rosta) in New York. On December 23, 1917, a decree appropriated 2,000,000 roubles for the needs of the revolutionary international movement and for the purpose of carrying on the work of the Soviet Governments in other countries besides Russia. The bureau of international revolutionary propaganda was attached to the Commissary for Foreign Affairs, and another Russo-American Jew, Mr. Reinstein, was appointed as its head, under Radek.’ (74)

‘It is only natural that in a country like the pre-revolutionary Russia a large percentage of such men should be found among the Jewish population, and there is no doubt that Jews to a very large extent control and provide the working machinery of the Bolshevik party. Of the twelve leading Bolshevik commissars eight are Jews, and there is a certain significance in the fact that they have seen fit to retain even to-day the Russian pseudonyms which they had formerly adopted as a measure of protection from the police. Amongst the smaller officials of the Bolshevik commissariats the percentage of Jews is probably even higher. To avoid any misinterpretation it should be pointed out that there is also a high percentage of Jews both in the Menshevik and social-revolutionary parties and also in the Cadet party, while it is interesting to note that the assassination of Count Mirbach and the Bolshevik commissar Uritsky and the attempt of Lenin’s life were in each instance carried out by anti-Bolshevik Jewish Socialists.’ (75) [-]

‘Trotsky heard my answer, “to repair some machine in a Russian factory,” the permit was signed and I was again conducted by the two Guards back to the waiting-room and a pass handed me without which it would have been impossible for me to leave the building. I may add that this permit was not considered sufficient by the lady of Jewish extraction who presided at that time over the Petrograd evacuation committee at the Marine Palace, and I was compelled after all to get another permit signed by the Commissar for foreign affairs before I received the final permit which enabled me to take my place in the queue waiting to buy railway tickets.’ (76) [+-]

‘So it was at the beginning of our century that “Red ruin and the breaking up of laws” was well on its way sweeping out what little belief many talented “after Christians” still cherished in the supernatural life, who together with atheist Jews – God save the mark! – and a few renegade Catholics formed a force that had already become a powerful factor, here, too, in America in opposition to those right principles and sound institutions that are our proud inheritance as a free people.’
(77) [J]

‘The Arbeiter Ring (Workmen’s Circle) a Jewish fraternal, beneficial propaganda society, having some 600 branches with over 71,000 members, mostly in and around New York City, has been foremost in organizing Socialist Sunday Schools. These schools are established in many cities in our country and they are now being chartered by the Yipsels.’ (78) [J]

‘August 7. – I called at temporary prison and saw Greenep, Whishaw, and Jerram. They are well treated by their guards who are real Russians, unlike most of their leaders, who are either fanatics or Jewish adventurers like Trotsky or Radek.’
(79) [+-]

‘Sir, - On 30th August I left for Moscow, largely in connection with negotiations for evacuation of British subjects from Russia. The same day Uritski Commissary at Petrograd, for combating counter-revolution, was assassinated by a Jewish student Kanegiesser, whose father is a wealthy engineer and holds a very good position at Petrograd.’ (80) [+]

‘The Extraordinary Commission of Petrograd had on the orders of the day of one of their sittings the question of the application of torture. It is common knowledge that the unfortunate Jewish student who killed Britozsky was tortured three or four times before his execution.’ (81) [+]

‘The Bolsheviks can no longer be described as a political party holding extreme communistic view. They form relatively small privileged class which is able to terrorise the rest of the population because it has a monopoly both of arms and of food supplies. This class consists chiefly of workmen and soldiers, and included a large non-Russian element, such as Letts and Esthonians and Jews; the latter are especially numerous in higher posts. Members of this class are allowed complete licence, and commit crime against other sections of society.’ (82) [+]

‘Following from consul at Ekaterinburg, 6th February: -

“From examination of several labourer and peasant witnesses I have evidence to the effect that very smallest percentage of this district were pro-Bolshevik, majority of labourers sympathising with summoning of Constituent Assembly. Witnesses further stated that Bolshevik leaders did not represent Russian working classes, most of them being Jews.’
(83) [+]

‘I have been for ten years in Russia, and have been in Petrograd though the whole of the revolution.

I spent six weeks in the Fortress of Peter and Paul, acted as chaplain to His Majesty’s submarines in the Baltic for four years, and was in contact with the 9th (Russian) Army in Romania during the autumn of 1917 whilst visiting British Missions and hospitals, and had ample opportunity of studying Bolshevik methods.

It originated in German propaganda, and was, and is being, carried out by international Jews.’
(84) [+]

‘So effective is the Terror that no one dares to engage in anti-Bolshevik propaganda. People have been arrested for a simple telephonic conversation, in which the terms seemed ambiguous or could be interpreted as adverse to the Bolsheviks. An arrest is the prelude to every kind of corruption; the rich have to pay huge exactions to intermediaries, who are usually Jews, before they can obtain their release.’ (85) [+]

‘At the Putilov Works anti-Semitism is growing, probably because the food supply committees are entirely in the hands of Jews and voices can be heard sometimes calling for a “pogrom.”’
(86) [+]

‘Bolshevism is non-national and non-democratic. It is non-national; in April of 1918 Lenine’s and Trotzky’s government included 384 men, represented by two negroes, thirteen Russians, fifteen Chinamen, twenty-two Armenians and Georgians, sixty Russian Jews, and two hundred and sixty-four apostate Jews who had come to Russia from the United States and who belong to Trotzky’s group organized in New York.’ (87) [-]

‘Trotzky and Lenine placed their friends over the various administrative provinces of Russia. One apostate Jew was made tax collector, another made sheriff, to arrest any one who attacked the tax collector; a third was appointed judge, to clear the tax collector, and a fourth was made military governor, to use the Red soldiers to protect the tax collector.’ (88) [-]

‘In some instances the Bolsheviki instigated the peasants to massacre hundreds of innocent people in adjacent villages and towns. They did not stop, or even protest against, the most savage anti-Jewish pogroms.’

‘In inventing the most refined methods of torturing the victim, Dzerjinsky’s imagination has no limits. It is probably only his companion, the Jewess Braude of the Moscow Cheka, who can compete with him in these fields.’ (90)


(71) Paul Miliukov, 1920, ‘Bolshevism: An International Danger’, 1st Edition, George Allen & Unwin: London, p. 140. It should be noted that Miliukov is here quoting H. E. Bailey in the ‘Daily Telegraph’ for January the 13th 1919. He also notes that Feuerstein is also mentioned as a jewish Bolshevik agent by M. W. Nevinson in the ‘Daily News’ for January the 13th 1919. These stories are of the same event and differ slightly in their specifics, but both agree that Feuerstein was a jewess and that she was a Bolshevik agent.
(72) Ibid., p. 265. I have marked this quote as potentially unreliable because it relies on Miliukov’s assumption of what a jewish name is and as names are not a good indicator, generally-speaking, of whether someone is jewish or not we must own that Miliukov’s assertion must be treated very cautiously.

Part VI

‘In the vicinity of New York City the Communist camps include a very high percentage of Jewish boys and girls. There is no Federal law prohibiting such camps teaching disloyalty and practically treason to thousands of healthy and bright young future Americans, and they are permitted to exist and continue to warp the minds of immature children whose parents have fled from countries where they were oppressed to a land of freedom and of equal opportunity.’ (91)

‘Harry Novick

A son of a rabbi and loud in self-defense of repeated accusations made because of his membership in the Communist Party. Harry is one of the most militant fellow-travellers we have. There is no definite tie to link him in actual membership in the party, but no doubt whatsoever as to his beliefs.

If not a member it may be mainly or solely because of the position his father occupies in the Jewish synagogues. Loud and arrogant, completely the tool of the Reds, Harry is both a formidable foe and a pitiful figure.

Harry was an executive board member of our local by virtue of his position as chief shop steward of the radio Bond Street section of the Bridgeport General Electric plant.

Harry has attended Communist meetings and has also invited and taken neighbors of his from Stratford to these meetings.’
(92) [#]

‘I seldom went to the school library, since my work requires little reference reading. But one day I wandered in and was confronted immediately with Paul Radin’s “The Racial Myth.” This book is treasonable and anti-Christian. It states in bald terms that there is to be a World Soviet State and that it is to be established by Americans, Jews and Russians.’ (93)

‘Mr. Scherer. Today the Communist Party is violently anti-Semitic, isn’t it?

Dr. Dodd. Let me just put it this way, Congressman Scherer, to be fair, publicly they will say they are against it, but when the question arose, when the 10 or 12 doctors were arrested – what happened in the Daily Workers, the unit which gives the line out to the party people – the Daily Worker began using the same kind of lies which Fascist minded people might be using against the Jewish people. They kept saying, “Of course, there are Jews down in Wall Street, and therefore the doctors in the Soviet Union must be the same type of characters as those people.”

In other words, they mouthed the same kind of anti-Semitism which we hear from people who are a real menace.’
(94) [#]

‘Captain Schneur seemed to have rendered so many services to the Bolsheviki that I could not help asking him how he came to be arrested.

“Jealousy and vengeance of a woman,” he answered, and explained to me how the mistress of Comrade Krylenko, a Jewess named Mme. Rasmirovich, asked him for some “help” before he left Petrograd.

It seemed that Mme. Rasmirovich had obtained the right and exclusive privilege from Smolny to print The Soldiers’ Pravda (the Bolshevist trench newspaper) and wanted to make her business proposition still more profitable by confiscating large quantities of printing paper in the offices of a big Petrograd newspaper. She wanted Captain Schneur to sign the order of requisition and furnish soldiers to commit the theft. He refused both. In her anger she vowed that he would pay heavily for his offence to her and she began to spread the report that he had been in correspondence with the Secret Police while he lived in Paris, and finally persuaded Comrade Krylenko to have him arrested and sent to the Fortress.’
(95) [+]

‘The Communist organization of the Soviet Government has proved to be only a dream which cannot be practically realized. Bolshevism in Russia is only a part of the revolutionary anarchy and can be divided into two periods: (a) that of the decay and destruction of the army, which I call the period of the German agents; (b) that of the Red Terror, which I call the period of the historical vengeance of the oppressed in general and of the Jews in particular.’ (96) [+]

‘Together with other released Party members, Dzerzhinsky arrived at the conference held by the Warsaw committee of the Social-Democratic Party in connection with the revolutionary fervour which continued to mount in view of the October strike which had spread throughout Russia. (“The ovation that greeted them can easily be imagined,” wrote A. Krajewski.) Jakub Goldenberg, who was chairing the conference, immediately passed his functions over to Dzerzhinsky.’ (97)

‘Unfortunately there were still to be undergone the three or four years of civil war and famine, during which, at the hand of the contending armies, the bulk of the Jewish population suffered the worst excesses. All that can be said is that, on the whole, the White Armies were the most brutal, whilst the Red Army did its best to protect these poor victims, notwithstanding the fact that, for one or other reason, the majority of the Jews were, for some time, not sympathetic to the Bolshevik government. Its condemnation of profit-making trading, as of usury, bore harshly on the Jews of White Russia and the Ukraine, whose families had been for centuries excluded alike from agriculture and the professions, and confined to the towns of the Jewish Pale. In 1921 the New Economic Policy temporarily enabled many of them to resume their businesses; but by 1928 the all-pervading collectivist enterprises of the trusts and the cooperative societies, aided by penal taxation and harsh measures of police, had killed practically all the little profit-making ventures to which the Jewish families were specially addicted.’ (98)

‘For the economic rehabilitation of the Jews – apart from those whose education and ability enabled them to obtain official appointments or entrance to the brain-working professions – the main resource was placed upon the establishment of Jewish agricultural settlements, at first in Southern Ukraine and the Crimea, and latterly in the extensive territory allocated for this purpose at Biro-Bidjan on the Amour River, in Eastern Siberia. Largely by Government help with land and credit, assisted by a whole series of philanthropic associations promoted by Jews of the United States (notably the Jewish Distribution Committee), as well as those of the USSR in the great voluntary Jewish Colonisation Society (OZET), something like forty thousand Jewish families, comprising a hundred and fifty thousand persons, have within the past fifteen years, been added to the agricultural population of the Soviet Union, one fourth in Biro-Bidjan, which has already been made an “autonomous region”, ranking as an oblast, and will become a “Jewish autonomous republic” as soon as it obtains sufficient population.

To all the aggregations of Jews, although not recognised as a nation, the Soviet Government concedes the same measure and kind of cultural autonomy as it accords to the national minorities so called.’

‘Mr. Tavenner. What kind of a meeting was it?

Mr. Sampler. It was a Communist meeting, but whether it was under a committee or a commission, I don’t know.

Mr. Tavenner. Did he hold any position in the Communist Party in the District of Columbia at that time, to you knowledge?

Mr. Sampler. Not that I know of.

Mr. Tavenner. This address, 4402 Georgia Avenue, is it a private home or an apartment building, or what is it?

Mr. Sampler. It is the Jewish Community Center, I believe that is the name.’
(100) [#]

‘Mr. Moulder. What was Mr. Wahl doing at that time?

Mr. Lowenthal. He was Washington representative or secretary of the American Jewish Conference, which was an amalgamation of a great many Jewish organizations as I understand it.’
(101) [#J]

‘Mr. Arens. Could you kindly tell us again the circumstances of your joining the Communist Party when you joined?

Mr. Cherlin. The circumstances proceeding my actual joining was that I functioned as a music teacher in a Jewish fraternal organization called the Jewish People’s Fraternal Organization [Order].

Mr. Arens. Was that an adjunct of the International Workers Order?

Mr. Cherlin. That is right. We would go from 1 lodge or 1 group to another, a group of 3 or 4 teachers, were we would give lessons. One or two of these people were party people; and, in travelling from one place to another, we would have discussions, political, theoretical, philosophical, and practical; and pressures were put upon me to join the Communist Party.’ (102) [#J]

‘Mr. Arens. Have you appeared, given concerts, under the auspices of the School of Jewish Studies in the course of the last few years?

Mr. Hollander. I don’t recall, sir.

Mr. Arens. We display to you now a thermofax reproduction of an announcement in the Communist Daily Worker (March 30, 1948, p. 5), to the effect that there will be a concert at the School of Jewish Studies in which the artists listed include Max Hollander.

Look at that and see if that refreshes your recollection.

(The document was handed to the witness.)

(The witness conferred with his counsel.)

Mr. Hollander. It is possible, sir, but I don’t remember. Being a violinist of certain stature. I have played concerts a great deal, and I, as a rule, have not asked where the job comes from. May I elaborate, if I may, sir?

Jobs, as a rule, come through the telephone, and have to go through the union somehow. One accepts a job and does not ask who is the employer, but one finds out who has hired him. In effect, that particular person acts as a contractor. I have no recollection of having played a concert for a Jewish school. I may have, sir.

(Document marked “Hollander Exhibit No. 2,” and retained in committee files.)

Mr. Arens. You know the School of Jewish Studies has been repeatedly cited as a Communist-controlled outfit: do you not?’ (103) [#]

‘Mr. Arens. What connection, if any, have you had with the School of Jewish Studies?

Mr. Hellerman. Is that – Excuse me a moment.

(The witness conferred with his counsel.)

Mr. Hellerman. I am afraid I really don’t understand the question. I don’t know exactly what you mean when you say association.

Mr. Arens. Have you performed at the School of Jewish Studies?

Mr. Hellerman. I don’t know. I have performed in a great many places.

Mr. Arens. Do you have any recollection of performing there? If you do not, we will pass on to another question.

Mr. Hellerman. I have no recollection of performing there.

Mr. Arens. ‘Are you now, or have you ever been, a member of the Communist Party?

Mr. Hellerman. I believe that I will decline to answer that question on the basis of the fifth amendment.

Mr. Arens. Are you now a member of the Communist Party?

(The witness conferred with his counsel.)

Mr. Hellerman. I decline to answer on the previous grounds.

Mr. Arens. I want to invite your attention, if you please, Mr. Hellerman, to the article appearing in the Daily Worker of 1947 (December 12), which I shall now display to you, in reference to a series of entertainment programs. We have marked here, just for the purpose of directing your attention to it, the name “Fred Hellerman,” of People’s Songs, who is to perform in “Village Varieties, a smash hit, “ and the admission is 75c or a subscription to the Worker. Kindly look at that article, if you please, sir, and tell us if that prompts your recollection of that incident.

Mr. Hellerman. I decline to answer that.’
(104) [#]

‘By a curious – what shall I call it? – coincidence all these men, most of whom were about to play a leading part in the great betrayal of Russia, were Jews.’ (105)

‘What was to all intents and purposes a branch of the Whitfield Street club was established at 49, Tottenham Street, under the title of the Social Democratic Communist Club. In Cable Street, a small thoroughfare turning out of Princes Square, there existed for some time a club known as The Dawn. Greater notoriety has attached to the anarchist club in Berner Street, Commercial Road. It was originally known as the Nihilist Club, and was founded by Russian refugees. The gulf between nihilism and anarchism is not great, the latter, indeed, including the former. The members of the Berner Street club were mainly recruited from the populous colony of foreign Jews that has settled in the East End of London. In April, 1891, the seventh anniversary of the foundation of this club was celebrated, one of the speakers remarking on this occasion that, though “the revolutionary movement among the Hebrews is of comparatively recent origin, at present wherever there are Jews in London, America, Australia, Poland or Russia, among those Jews will be found anarchists.”’ (106)

‘I had often heard of the honesty of the Jewish smugglers on the frontier; but I had never expected to have such proof of it. Later on, when our circle imported many books from abroad, or still later, when so many revolutionists and refugees crossed the frontier in entering or leaving Russia, there was not a case in which the smugglers betrayed anyone, or took advantage of the circumstances to exact an exorbitant price for their services.’ (107) [+]

‘We must have been there by the time I was six, for I remember the night of the 1935 General Election. It was raining and some people came to the door to take my father to vote for Lewis Cohen, the Labour candidate.’ (108) [#]

‘Because the Communist movement was so heavily infiltrated and influenced by Jewish activists it was natural that the Communist movement should be directed towards passionately attacking the anti-Semitism of National Socialism.’ (109) [#]

‘It was probably during the summer of 1946 that the Fabian Society obtained a very large property in Richmond Terrace, facing St. Peter’s Church. Of course, it was Lewis Cohen, boss of the Brighton-based Alliance Building Society, that provided the wherewithal.’ (110) [#]

Part VII

‘I was an 18-year-old law student. I was Jewish. I had been an active, card-carrying member of the Social Democratic party since I was twelve,’ (111) [#J]

‘A noisy and troublesome and growing minority in the council are called Bolsheviki (big claims), because they demand everything and will not even consider compromise. They want a separate peace, entirely favourable to Germany. I talked to a number of these men, but I could never get one of them to explain the reason of this friendship for Germany. Vaguely they seemed to feel that socialism was a German doctrine and, therefore, as soon as Russia put it into practice, the Germans would follow suit. Not all the council members are working people. Some have never done a hand’s turn of manual work in their lives. Many of the soldier members have never seen service and never will. The Jewish membership is very large, and in Russia the Jews have never been allowed any practice of citizenship.’
(112) [+]

‘Just one more case, because it is typical of many. This man was a real exile, and for eleven years he had lived in Chicago. Born in a small city in Western Russia, he joined, while still a youth, what was known as the Bund, a socialist propaganda circle of Jewish men and women. The youth’s parents, quiet, orthodox people, knew nothing of his activities, nor of the revolutionary literature of which he was custodian and which he had concealed in the sand bags piled up around the cottage to keep out the winter cold. On May 31, 1905, the Tavarishi, or comrades, in his town organized a small demonstration against the celebration of the Czar’s birthday. The next day the police began searching houses and making arrests among the youth of the town, and they found the books hidden in the sandbags. The boy fled, and found refuge in the next town. Money was raised, a passport forged and the youth finally got to England via Germany. He didn’t like England and in 1906 he crossed to the United States, and his whole career in Chicago was a history of agitation and rebellion. He was one of the founders of a socialist Sunday school in Mayor Thompson’s town, where children of tender years are given a through education in Bolshevik first principles.’
(113) [+]

‘A big black-bearded fellow with a hooked Jewish nose mounted the rostrum and attacked the war as a thing of financiers and capitalists.’ (114) [+-]

‘When I arrived in Vilna I had heard quite a good deal about the Jewish speaker, Vladek, who was called the “young Lassalle.” I went to hear him. It was the first time in my life that I heard a revolutionary speech in Yiddish. Vladek spoke remarkably well. His speech was short and to the point.’ (115) [+]

‘When I came to the United States in 1921, I reminded Vladek of the time I had seen and heard him. He was flattered that I remembered, after not seeing each other for sixteen years. He was now the manager of one of the largest Jewish newspapers in the world, the New York City “Daily Forward,” with a circulation of one million readers. He was the first president of the ORT, and was a councilman in New York, working on plans for slum districts. He was friendly with Prime Minister Leon Blum, Prime Minister Atlee of England, Herbert Morrison, and with all European labor leaders.’ (116) [+]

‘In Petrograd, I also met many of the leaders of the Jewish community, including G. B. Sliosberg the famous lawyer and president of the Jewish Community Council, O. O. Grusenberg, another prominent lawyer for the Russian Senate, and member of the Board of the Jewish Community Council, Maxim Vinaver, one of the finest organizers and orators in the duma, and a member of the Jewish Community Council board, and Rabbi Eisenstat, a noted scholar and Chief Rabbi in Petrograd, formerly from Rostov. They spoke of the revolution, and asked us to help the Provisional Government under Kerensky.’ (117) [+]

‘In a crowd of typical agitators, men and women, undersized, unwashed and largely Jewish, stood a very tall, well-dressed man with a fresh complexion, clear blue eyes, and an Imperial beard that made him resemble an old-time Frenchman.’ (118) [+]

‘A few Jews changed their place of abode; but the dreaded domination over the less active Christian Russians never materialized, through Jews did play a considerable role in directing the higher affairs of the Revolution, which is natural enough in view of the fact that they had been the pioneers of opposition of the Autocracy.’
(119) [+-]

‘On the top floor was the Bolshevik Executive Committee. The chiefs of this Committee claimed to be Americans. One, a young Jew, told me that he had edited a Russo-Jewish newspaper in the East Side of New York; and he affirmed that Bolshevism was practically an American doctrine; and that until lately it had flourished better in New York than anywhere in Russia.’
(120) [+]

‘The vast majority of Jews in Russia are, in fact, to be found in association with the Liberal bourgeoisie and are supporters of the Cadet Party. They loyally supported both the First and Second Provisional Governments like sober and respectable citizens, and they are making the greatest efforts to secure the success of the Liberty Loan. Generally they stand for maintaining the unity of the State and are opposed to centrifugal and separatist ideas. Of the Jews as a body we may expect that they will play a large part in the future reconstruction of Russia, but it cannot be said of them that they played a great and active part in the Revolution. The only Jews that took an active part in the Revolution were the small but energetic Socialist minority of Jewish idealists. If the millions of Jews of Russia have gained their freedom today they owe it to that minority of Jewish idealists.

Yet the very existence of these Jewish idealists is a peculiar demonstration of the force and reality of Russian idealism. Though members of an oppressed race and with every excuse for racial bitterness, they never faltered in their faith in Russia. In all the Revolutionary parties they played an active part. They went to gaol and Siberia with their Russian fellow-revolutionaries. Yet they knew by experience that every effort of theirs would be, and was, answered by the autocracy in brutal massacre of the Jewish population at large. Had they been swayed even to the slightest degree by racial considerations they would have held their hand if only out of pity for their own race. But to them the ideal was above all, and to-day they may be proud of Russia’s freedom, which they helped to achieve in co-operation with the best men and women of all Russia.’
(121) [+J]

‘The truth of the story is that Mr. Maniuloff secretly took to Rasputin’s house two or three police agents, to whom the latter said that God himself had revealed to him that Russia could never be saved from the perils of revolution until the removal of Mr. Stolypine. He even blessed the officers, together with a pistol with which he presented them. It turned out afterwards that this pistol was the very weapon which the Jew Bagroff fired at the Prime Minister in the theatre in Kieff during the gala performance given there in honour of the Emperor’s visit to the town.’

‘Among the workers the new party gained strength until about 1900. Then all its Jewish members seceded and formed the ‘Bund’, which favored immediate revolution. Others too seceded.”’
(123) [+]

‘Perhaps the most startling development of the difficult years – startling to those who knew the anti-Semitic attitudes of Tsarist days – is the movement for a Jewish theatre, a movement which has resulted in two solely Jewish stages, both now in their fourth season. On one of them, the Jewish Kamerny Theatre, the plays are given in Yiddish; on the other, the Studio Theatre Gabima, only the purest Hebrew is heard. The former is the more pretentious and has been the busier of the two; the latter has emerged from comparative obscurity at a single stroke by an amazingly perfect and moving production of St. An-sky’s folk-tragedy, “The Dibbuk,” already introduced to the New York stage by the Yiddish Art Theatre.

The Jewish Kamerny Theatre owes it existence to a group of artists of that race, including Granovsky, Rosovsky, Moosan, Anchron and Altman, who determined in 1919 to found such a stage and six months later opened its doors in Petrograd, thanks to funds provided by the Petrograd Soviet.’

‘The Revolutionary emigration has come back to its own. Amongst the members of the Executive Committee, moreover, all are not Russians. Without mentioning the Jews, who are very numerous, Mme. Kolontay, sitting among the Leninists, is Finnish. And there is Rakowski, too, the Socialist leader of Roumania: one never knows exactly whether he is Roumanian or Bulgarian.’ (125) [-]

‘There are, in this revolutionary commune, many foreigners, Cosmopolitans, Jews especially, hiding under a borrowed name their German origin, but who cannot regard as their fatherland a country where they have scarcely known anything but persecution.’

‘Yet another investigating Commission was formed then and there, for Lenin’s rehabilitation. I don’t know anything about its activities. But I recall that two days later there were discussions of some other elections to this Commission: the ‘inconvenience’ emerged that its original membership consisted only of Jews, five in all – including Dan, Lieber, and Gots. The rehabilitation of Lenin by a Commission like that could serve only as a source of another Black Hundred campaign – against the whole Soviet for concealing higher treason…’ (127)

‘We fail to see two stars of the first magnitude amongst the Bolshevik rulers – the ‘cronies’, Zinoviev and Kamenev. Their absence from the Government might have had a great many valid reasons. First of all, being somewhat in opposition, they might have declined. Secondly, for tactical reasons it was advisable to cut down as much as possible on the number of Ministers of Jewish origin (the sole exception was Trotsky). Thirdly, we must remember that from now on ministerial posts were in fact not the most important in the State: stars of the first magnitude made all high policy in the Party Central Committee. Fourthly, Kamenev was appointed chairman of the Central Ex. Com., which formally was the highest State body, while Zinoviev received a high appointment as editor of the official state newspaper: the Izvestiya of the Central Ex. Com.’ (128)

‘The Socialist parties of the White Russians, Esthonians, Livonians, Letts, Lithuanians, and Jews were fused for the revolutionary movement. The Jews, in the opinion of Ular, played an important role in the revolution.’ (129)

‘Among the ethnic groups whose discontent and opposition to Tsardom had necessarily reached vast proportions, and who largely contributed to the downfall of autocracy, is that of the Jews. To a greater degree than the Poles, the Letts or Finns, or, indeed, any other ethnic group in the vast Empire of the Romanovs, they have been the artisans of the Revolution of 1917.’ (130) [J]

‘It was but natural that the Jews should take a prominent part in the movement of Russian liberation. When Professor Errera wrote that few Jews could be found among the Revolutionaries in Russia, he was absolutely wrong.’ (131) [J]

‘On the contrary, I maintain that not only have the Jews of Russia good and valid reasons to be on the side of the revolution, but that, in reality, they have contributed individually and collectively, as an ethnic and religious group, to the movement of emancipation in Russia and to the triumph of democracy.’ (132) [J]

‘My dislike was shared by all Muscovites. Motors were used only by the Jewish rulers, and they sped along regardless of other folk.’ (133) [+-]

‘The autumn of the year 1917 brought great changes. Just as Michael-Petrovitch thought all was well the Bolsheviki took over the government in Petrograd, and the Ukrainians took over Kief. To Bouromka came, one day soon afterward, a new committee from outside, preaching fiery red doctrines. It was composed of a delegate or two from the factory workmen’s Soviet at Poltava, together with student and Jewish propagandists, and they settled down for some time in the village.’ (134) [+]

‘The University and the superior schools remained closed. The men and women students who were not working here were sent into the provinces by the political committees to carry on propaganda among the peasants in favour of the republic. Eight out of ten were Jews and Revolutionary Socialists.’
(135) [+]

‘Pivoting on this right foot, he swung round, clicked his heels and executed the fine salute reserved, until lately, for generals.

Meanwhile, a crowd had gathered round.

“What’s the matter?”

“It’s an officer bullying a solider.”

A policeman was summoned. He was a little Jew, and wasted no time on laying hands on the general.’
(136) [+-]

‘It is a curious fact that among the leaders of the Labour Party, which at present is the preponderating party in Russia, there are Armenians, Caucasians, Germans and Jews, but not a single real Russian.’ (137) [-]

‘The Social Revolutionaries prided themselves on being irreligious and very many of them were Jews.’ (138) [+]

‘All the “counter-Revolutionists” were herded together in one carriage, the one farthest from the engine, and in charge of us was a Jewish official of the Kerensky Government.’ (139) [+]

‘Here two soldiers waited, and I was taken out between them and marched to the headquarters of the Chekha. In a small, dirty room I underwent an examination by two Jewish Communists, one of whom, Vladimirov – nearly all Jewish Communists assume Russian names – being prominent in the councils of the Communist central committee.’ (140) [+]

The period that Erdstein (‘Inside the Fourth Reich’ is really Erdstein’s extremely egoistic autobiography pretending to be a ‘nazi hunting’ book) is referring to here is 1938 in Austria.

Appendix I

The 'Socialist History Society' will likely be unknown to many of my readers and I don't particularly blame them. I first became aware of it when I accidentally acquired one of its monographs that dealt with the jewish baker's union in London on Ebay (of all places). Now the 'Socialist History Society', or SHS as it likes to call itself, is quite a considerable organisation of marxist intellectuals in Britain. It is also looking to expand to North America, i.e. here in the USA, in the next few months as I am informed by its Newsletter for March 2010 (p. 12 if you are interested) with the help of something called the 'Institute of Working Class History' (one doubts there are many 'working class' let alone 'proletarian' individuals involved and that most of its clientele are 'de-classed' 'bourgeoisie'/'petit-bourgeoisie' if my observations on this point based on my experience with the Left in general are correct [1]).

The 'Socialist History Society' was formed in 1992, after the fall of Communism in Eastern Europe, out of the Communist Party History Group. It, as you might expect, has a useable website [2] and publishes a relatively respectable intellectual journal of its own called 'Socialist History'. It also, as alluded to above, produces a bulletin of sorts and has its own 'Occasional Papers' series, of which I have several (most of them however are worthless amounts of ink spilt on paper with a nice glossy cover). That said however the SHS has quite a few academic contacts (and members) and is organised enough to attend booksales, such as the 'Freethinkers Book Fair', and hold regular public lectures (which I have also attended out of curiosity) in London (in the UK).

That said however what immediately grabbed my attention was the fact that the SHS has a jewish Stalinist, Professor Eric Hobsbawm (formerly Obstbaum), as its chairman [3]. Until recently its secretary was another jewish Stalinist, Professor Nina Fishman, who recently died and whose laudatory obituary (the only one I am aware of in a significant publication) was written by a fellow member of the tribe: Donald Sassoon. Also its 'joint chair' is one June Cohen. So now with Fishman's timely death the SHS' Officers roll smells a little less of gefilte fish although it is still at least 25% (formerly at least 37.5%) kosher. I do not know the pedigree of the other officers, but it is quite plausible that some of them may be partially jewish.

It is also notable that the SHS retains close ties with the 'Jewish Socialists' Group' [4], which, in spite of it being basic Marxist doctrine that all religious and political considerations are based on economics [and therefore do not exist outside of an economic framework], has decided that really jews as a group do exist and that they are really a biological group (otherwise why bother with a 'Jewish Socialists' Group' after all one thought that they would be progressive enough to become one with everyone else since biology doesn't matter a whole lot to any relatively orthodox Marxist today). One also notes that they allow jews, such as one Professor David Loewenstein of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, to warble at them and even applaud the jew (no doubt the enterprising Professor Loewenstein found one or two victims from the audience for a little more 'private' ego-fufillment, but there we go) [5].

So apparently the Socialist History Society is really a bit of a kosher butchering house, but there we go again... The SHS may not abide by the halakha regarding kashrut, but they certainly do abide by the secular halakha of Marx in 'Das Kapital', among other of his works, and it is fitting to say the least that they have more than their fair share of hooked noses at the top of the SHS.

[1] Also see for example: Denis Hill, 1989, 'Seeing Red - Being Green: The Life and Times of a Southern Rebel', 1st Edition, Iconoclast Press: Brighton. Where Hill, a former Communist and senior trade union official, often speaks of the problems presented by university radicals and 'de-classed' middle-class individuals for those who actually work with rather than try to dictate to 'the working class'/'proletariat' etc. It is a pointed expose, but all the more remarkable for its intellectual history in showing just how cretinous the left in general is (if we on the 'far right' think we have it bad then I'd hate to think what would happen if we were like the left in general [the proverb 'too many cooks spoil the broth' would be an apt characterisation of the left, while a modification of that proverb would do just as well for the right: 'too few cooks make no broth']). Hill also remarks on numerous occasions on the amount of jews in left-wing and marxist movements in general and one can't really call Hill anti-Semitic given that he lived with and loved a jewish trotskyite, one Ann Frost, for several years in his later life (of whom he speaks affectionately in his book).

[3] Hobsbawm is reported to have told Professor Robert Conquest that any amount of deaths justified the 'formation of a better society' according to Wikipedia. How true this is I cannot say, but having read some of Hobsbawm's writing it wouldn't surprise me if he did state something along these lines as Hobsbawm is a pretty obvious apologist for both Stalin and Communism in general.

What this info demonstrates, to me, is that the only way to stop jews is to class them with vermin and exterminate them. Whites simply aren't paranoid and hostile in ways that allow them to compete with subversive jews. We have to use other aspects of our character to overcome them.

‘A by-product of these general migration schemes was a project for the settlement of Jews on the land. A committee for this purpose was set up in 1923, but apparently achieved no results till, in the following year, an American Jewish organization established an American Jewish Join Agricultural Corporation (“Agro-Joint”) to promote “the mass transfer to productive occupations” of as many as possible of the 2,700,000 Jews living in the Soviet Union. An agreement was reached by which funds for this enterprise would be provided in equal proportions by Agro-Joint and by the Soviet authorities. In the autumn of 1924 a “committee for the settlement on the land of Jewish toilers” (Komzet) was established by the presidium of the Soviet of Nationalities, and drew up a programme for the settlement of 100,000 Jewish families. Land was put at the disposal of the committee in the southern Ukraine and in the Crimea, with the promise of further allocations in the Volga region and in the North Caucasus. In 1925, in spite of some local resistance, 100,000 Jews were in fact settled, and the number had risen to 250,000 by 1928, mainly in the Ukraine and in the Crimea. Settlement was almost exclusively in the form of kolkhozy; individual Jewish settlers were rare. The scheme had no political implications, though Petrovsky, the president of the Ukrainian Sovnarkom, went so far as to suggest to the ninth Congress of Soviets in May 1925 the creation of “separate Jewish districts or even a Jewish region”, and hopes were expressed elsewhere that the project might one day lead to the foundation of a Jewish Soviet republic.’ (141)

‘According to Gleb Struve (Soviet Russian Literature), who considers Bagritsky ‘one of the most talented and original of the young Soviet poets’, the Lay is ‘the story of a Ukrainian peasant who flies from the Communist food-detachment commanded by the Jew Kogan, encounters on his way the “Green” anarchist bands of Makhno and is forced to joined them. Then Kogan is taken prisoner by the Makhno bands and Opanas is despatched to shoot him. On the way to the execution he changes his mind and proposes to Kogan to let him escape, but Kogan chooses death. Later on the Makhno bands are defeated by the Reds and Opanas in his turn taken prisoner. Questioned by the Red commanded Kotovsky he confesses to having killed Kogan and submits docilely to the execution. It is a typical revolutionary heroic poem.’’ (142) [J]

‘Now I again knew somebody who was in possession of stolen wealth, and felt no scruples about taking it from him. He was a Polish Jew who had been a lieutenant in the International Brigades in Spain. When I left Moscow in 1941 I let him have the use of my room. After my return I had been there several times. I had seen that he had plenty of blankets, suits, and shoes, all rarities in Russia, and that he also had a great deal of cash. The origin of his wealth was no secret to me; he had held an important job at the International Red Aid for three years.’ (143)[*]

‘Politically, the Social-Revolutionaries always advocated a federative Russian republic. The composition of the party was extremely varied. School teachers and small intelligentsia became affiliated with it. The more prominent leaders numbered several important Moscow Jewish merchants.’ (144)

‘Besides obvious foreigners, Bolshevism recruited many adherents from among émigrés, who had spent many years abroad. Some of them had never been to Russia before. They especially numbered a great many Jews. They spoke Russian badly. The nation over which they had seized power was a stranger to them, and besides, they behaved as invaders in a conquered country. Throughout the Revolution generally and Bolshevism in particular the Jews occupied a very influential position. This phenomenon is both curious and complex. But the fact remains that such was the case in the primarily elected Soviet (the famous trio – Lieber, Dahn, Gotz), and all the more so in the second one.

In the Tsarist Government the Jews were excluded from all posts. Schools or Government service were closed to them. In the Soviet Republic all the committees and commissaries were filled with Jews. They often changed their Jewish name for a Russian one – Trotsky-Bronstein, Kameneff-Rozenfeld, Zinovieff-Apfelbaum, Stekloff-Nakhmakes, and so on.’
(145) [-]

‘There was a head (president) of the soldiers and officers deputies association of the Twelfth Army who was a Jew from Riga, an attorney. He came to see me, and when I showed him this document he said, “The document that these soldiers gave you would entitle you to become almost a commander-in-chief, but these people write to you and say that you can’t be even a company commander because you don’t fit the Revolution.”’ (146) [+]

‘At this point I would like to call to your attention a comment of Lenin’s. He was not Jewish. Lenin once said, “If it had not been for the enthusiastic support of Jews and their genius for organization, I would never have been able to make a revolution and make it triumph.”

During the period of civil war most leaders on the Red side, the most important leaders as well as the lesser ones, were Jewish. They were called “political commissars.” The top man was Leon Trotsky Bronstein.’
(147) [+]

‘Shortly after I left my mother, a Revolutionary Committee arrived. Three men, a Jew, a sailor with a rifle, and a soldier comprised the committee. They demanded that all wages paid to the workers on the estate be raised one hundred percent.’ (148) [+]

‘At that time, most of the Jewish population was very much pro-Bolshevik and pro-Communist for a reason I will speak about in much detail later; by no means all of them (I do not want to make any kind of generalization), but very many of them were, especially the younger ones propagandized the German occupation troops little by little.’ (149) [+]

‘Obviously you want to unburden something that weighs heavily on your mind.” Rudin said, “Yes, it does, Sir. As a young artillery officer, back in 1917, I came home on leave. My father had a modest estate in the vicinity of St. Petersburg. We belonged to the Russian nobility but not to the very wealthy top-notch aristocracy of Russia. We are of an impoverished but very ancient and noble family. My father served all his life in the army and was a retired general, too old to participate in the war of 1914. He lived in that home of ours with my mother, my sister, and my fiancée, who was visiting them when I came on leave. And the, out of the blue, came the Revolution. I know that you were somewhere out in the provinces with the regiment. You were not in Petersburg and the horrors of the Revolution reached you gradually. But to us who were there it came as a big blow out of nowhere. A few trucks full of drunk sailors, led by several Jewish youths of St. Petersburg, seized my father and shot him outright. They tied me to a tree with ropes so that I could not move at all. They put a gag in my mouth and then in front of me that gang raped my sister and fiancée and then they shot them both, as well as my mother. They looted and smashed everything in the house but for some reason that I do not understand, they forgot all about me. Finally that gang drive off, probably to do the same thing to our neighbors.’ (150) [+]

‘Arcadi Berdichevsky, who became my husband in 1928, had worked from 1920 until 1927 at Arcos or at the Soviet Trade Representation in London. He was a Russian Jew, who had studied at Zurich University and emigrated to the United States in 1914. In 1920 he had thrown up a very good job in New York to work for the Soviet government in London. He was not a Bolshevik, but had been a member of the Jewish Social Democratic party in Poland (the Bund), where had had lived until he went to study in Switzerland about 1910. He knew less about Soviet Russia than I did, since he spent his whole time in England since 1920. He was a sincere Socialist, and although he was too much of a Jew and knew the old Russia too well not to perceive the naivete of the picture I painted of the U.S.S.R., he believed as I did that a new and better world was being created in Russia. He, like me, wanted to take part in the building of that new socialist world.’ (151) [#]

‘While awaiting Arcadi’s arrival from the Far East I lived with his sister and her two sons in their tiny two-roomed apartment in the Dom Politkatajan on Pokrovka. This was the House of the “Political Hard-Labor Prisoners” – i.e., of those who had done hard labor in Siberia under the Tsar. Vera, my sister-in-law, had been sent to a Siberian prison from Lodz in Poland while still in her teens. First, like Arcadi, a member of the Bund (Jewish Social Democrats) she had become a Social Revolutionary in Siberia but had joined the Bolsheviks in 1917, and had herself fought against the Japanese in the Intervention. She had been imprisoned by them but had escaped. Her whole life had been one of adventure, hardship, and sacrifice; but now she had a good job and was full of confidence in the future. She radiated happiness. Her first child had died as a baby on the long trek in the snow across Siberia to the prison camp. Trying to shield it from the cold, she had suffocated it in her arms. Her second son, Shura, had somehow survived the rigors of prison and exile, and was now a youth of eighteen studying engineering at the Moscow University.’ (152)[*]

‘The greatest source of revenue of the Torgsin shops was remittances from abroad. Jews, in particular, often had relatives abroad – in Poland, in Germany, and above all in the United States – who would sent them a few dollars a month to save them from starvation. The percentage of Jewish people standing in Torgsin queues –there were queues even at these shops since there were never enough shop assistants – was very high. Anti-Semitism, although officially condemned, took a new lease on life when the Russians saw their Jewish neighbors in the apartment kitchens cooking good food which they never had a chance to buy.’ (153)[*]

‘A far more unpleasant type of blatmeister was a certain V, the titular head of one department at Promexport, who acted as general factotum and toady to Kalmanofsky, the chairman. He attended to the letting of the chairman’s datcha (“country house”) and other personal affairs, and was always at this side, fetched and carried for him, flattered him, and made himself useful in innumerable ways. Quite useless at his office, he was invaluable to the chairman for securing whatever he personally required and in general in attending to his private affairs. V had no dignity at all. The chairman often treated him like a dog, stormed at him and vented his temper on him. This chairman was not stupid; he was in fact an able and intelligent man, an educated Jew who could appreciate merit and liked me like my husband who stood their ground and were never subservient.’ (154)[*]

‘The straight Russian part of the party is in complete command of the situation, since over 71 per cent are straight Russian. Of the rest, 6.3 per cent are Ukrainian, 5.3 per cent Caucasian, while the Jews, who in many parts of Europe are considered to have commanding influence, only number 4.9 per cent.’ (155)

‘As the Germans advanced deeper into Russia, theatre companies in provincial cities folded up and hurried eastward. This was not organized evacuation but the movement of small individual groups. A large percentage of actors stayed to wait for the Germans. Only a few theatres in the larger provincial cities were evacuated completely and in an organized fashion, but the local Soviet authorities could claim no credit for these successes. They were du to the personal enterprise of individual theatre directors who public-spirited enough to think about saving their theatres as well as themselves. In the majority of cases, the leading Soviet administration personnel, including heads of Party committees, executives of state enterprises and officials of the NKVD, loaded their belongings onto government trucks and fled to safety at the first opportunity. Needless to say, they washed their hands of responsibility for what would happen to the population they left behind – a population which included artists and large groups of Jews.’ (156)

‘Our party attended a meeting at Novo-Nikolaievsk of the Siberian Revolutionary Committee, the highest governing body in Siberia at the present time, which had been called to discuss a scheme for development of an important mining region with the help of foreign immigrant workmen. We watched the proceedings with keen interest, for we felt that we were witnessing a part of the Soviet apparatus at work. There were about thirty-five men and women in the room, mostly workers and peasants, with a sprinkling of intellectuals and professional men. A number of old Siberian revolutionary exiles now sat as rulers of the country where they had once been confined as prisoners. The average age of the gathering I should estimate at about forty. The Committee included few university graduates, perhaps a dozen, certainly no more; there were eight or ten Jews among them.’ (157) [+]

‘As in Russian literature, the two chief themes in the Ukraine are also the new order in agriculture and industry. Successful authors are I. Kirilenko and V. Kuzmich, Ivan Le and G. Kozyuba. Nathan Lurye, a young Jewish writer, wrote one of the most noteworthy works on the Socialist organization of village life in his novel The Call of the Steppe. But all these are names which mean little to us. Not one of them, with the exception perhaps of Mikitenko, has hitherto attained the importance of a Sholokhov or Gladkov.’ (158)

‘What happens to the other faiths? We were several times surprised to discover that Jews in the U.S.S.R. are considered not as members of a religious persuasion, but as a “national minority”, in the same was Armenians, Georgians, Tartars, etc…. (An official, telling us about national minorities represented in the government, said, “Kaganovitch is a Jew, Mikoyan is an Armenian”) and when they introduced themselves to us, several Soviets specifically announced that they were Jews.’ (159)[*]

‘We met several Russian Jews who occupied responsible positions, the director, for instance, of Pravda’s printing works, the most important Soviet newspaper press.’ (160)[*]

‘The Jewish theatre, which even under the former regime and at the beginning of the revolutionary period played an important part in Russian life, has completely disappeared.’ (161)[*]

‘M. J. Olgin, member of the central committee of the Communist Party, and editor of the Jewish Communist organ, “Freiheit,” has written a pamphlet since recognition of Russia by the United States, entitled “Why Communism,” which is even clearer in its open advocacy of violent destruction of the United States government.’ (162)

‘The problem of the large number of revolutionary Russian Jews in Germany doubtless contributed toward making Fascist Germany anti-Semitic.’ (163)

‘Camps Nitgedaiget

Communist camps near N.Y., Chicago, Lumberville, Pa., Wash., D.C., Detroit, Birmingham, etc.’ run by the communist Jewish “United Workers Cooperative Assn.” The camp near Chicago for example is located on Paddock Lake 14 miles west of Kenosha, Wis. And occupies about 205 acres; accommodates 500 to 600 people from July 4, to Nov. 1; a Young Pioneer Camp has been held here for the past two years (under direction, 1933, of Comrade Levine of the Young Communist League);’

‘Communist League of America

American adherents of the expelled Trotsky faction in the Communist International; organized 1928; while not affiliated with the Communist Part of the U.S.A. it supports the Communist T.U.U.L. strikes and participates in other “united front” activities; is more violently revolutionary in theory than even the parent Communist Party. In 1930 the national committee included Martin Abern, James P. Cannon, Vincent Dunne, Hugo Oehler, Max Schactman, Carl Skoglund, Maurice Spector, Arne Swabeck, issues Youth and Jewish papers besides the English weekly “Militant”;’

‘Debs Memorial Radio Station

Radio station WEVD named after Eugene V. Debs, “started and continued by Socialists and radicals,” was according to 1932 Am. Labor Year Book, “finally allowed to keep its license after a hard fight, and was heavily endowed by the Jewish Daily Forward” (Socialist newspaper).’

‘“Potted Biographies” says: “In June 1917, MacDonald, assisted by Snowden, Smillie, Ammon, Anderson, Roden Buxton, Mrs. Despard, Mrs. Snowden, and many East End Jews, held a conference at Leeds and agreed to the formation of Workmen’s and Soldiers’ Councils, on Russian lines, to end the war by outbreak of a revolution which would paralyse our military operations.’ (167)


Communist Jewish “Foreign Language Groups” (see) conducting Freiheit Singing Societies, Freiheit Workers Clubs, etc., etc., in N.Y., Chicago and other cities. The official Jewish Communist newspaper (published in Yiddish) is the Jewish Daily Freiheit; Moissaye J. Olgin is editor. The building of this newspaper, which in 1930 had a daily N.Y. sworn circulation of 64,067 copies, adjoins the building of the official communist Daily Worker (published in English). They use the same presses. Communist banners, recently decorated the front of both buildings,’

‘International Workers Order

Communist fraternal and agitational insurance society formed in 1930 by 7,000, mainly Jewish members of the left of the Workmen’s Circle. Now, after three years, it claims 34,000 members including branches of Hungarians, Slovaks, Ukrainians, Italians, Polish, Russians, Armenians, Spanish, Bulgarians, Greeks, Negroes and Americas; conducts Russian, Slovak, Ukrainian and Jewish Communist language schools and about 130 elementary and higher schools for children in order to counteract “capitalistic” and “nationalistic” public school tendencies.’

‘After another offering of a shilling, I queried the Demuth woman regarding Marx’s religious inclinations. She said “’e was a God-fearing man.”

I gathered that Marx had often gone on Saturdays to a Jewish temple in the Maidenhead section of London. Sometimes, when his ailment had bothered him too severely (using the exact words of the Demuth woman), “he prayed alone in his room, before a row of lit candles, tying sort of a tape measure around his forehead.”’

On p. 182 we also read Stenbock-Fermor recalling something similar, but this time suggesting that Trotsky is the one who had a genius for organization: hence it may just be that Stenbock-Fermor is transliterating the meaning of Lenin’s comment regard Trotsky to jewish Bolsheviks in general. We should also note that Stenbock-Fermor is generally pro-jewish in the transcript of his oral memoirs and even suggests at one point that the Virgin Mary was a ‘jew girl’ (and hence jews should be accepted).

I have marked this quote as potentially unreliable as Riis’ testimony, although rather obscure, has not been used or credited by any biographer of Marx of whom I am aware. Also Riis doesn’t provide any evidence that the woman he talked to was really Helene Demuth (who had died in 1890 although Riis originally published ‘Karl Marx’ in the 1920s, which still stretches the timeline quite a bit).

Why do you credit outright falsehoods as truth?

"Introductory Note

I have also marked (inside the [] at the end of) the quotations for particular characteristics, which I provide a key to below:

+ = Makes observations on the basis of their experiences in Imperial Russia and/or during the Russian Civil War.
- = The author is of questionable reliability.

'The number of Jews occupying high positions in the Soviet Government is probably larger than the Jewish community is entitled to either on account of its numbers or its higher education standard. But even in Russia, there are many Jewish anti-Bolsheviks; and several of the leading Commissars are very anti-Jewish. Chicherin is Russian, though several of his assistants are Jews. Derzhinsky, the head of the Extraordinary Commission, is either Russian or Polish, and none of the people whom I met in that institution were Jews. Derzhinsky's right-hand man, Mogilevsky, with whom I was brought into close and unpleasant relations, is very anti-Jewish, and is at present trying to get hold of a Jew in Moscow who supplied Mr. North, it is alleged, with large sums of money for anti-Bolshevik agitation.

There must be many such anti-Bolshevik Jews who are probably opposed to Lenin on account of his ingenious scheme of inflating the currency until money becomes valueless. One can quite understand that a race with the financial ability of the Hebrews should dislike such a project.' (7) [+]

(7) Francis McCullagh, 1922, 'A Prisoner of the Reds: The Story of a British Officer Captured in Siberia', 1st
Edition, E. P. Dutton: New York, pp. 267-268."

You attempt to credit that outright lie as a plus "+" as valid?

You credit that statement as true?

Mogilevsky was a Jew, that is indisputable [1]. Mogilevsky was born to Jewish parents in Pavlograd. In 1903 he joined the RSDRP, and in 1904 Mogilevsky was arrested. In 1906 he left Russia for Switzerland where Mogilevsky met Vladimir Lenin who recommended him to be admitted into Bolshevik section of the party. headed the Soviet foreign intelligence service of the GPU.

Jewishgen states that MOGILEVSKY, Solomon Grigorevich, born 1885, mother Ekaterinoslav Gubernia, death 1925, occupation: Politics [2].

Your source of Francis McCullagh's statement about Jews in Communism has been discredited. You have failed to defend your thesis.

Your information is incorrect.

He's a source you thick quack dipshit. Or do you think I actually agree with everything I quote or believe that the author's opinions/experiences that I am quoting is/are the literal truth?

If I was citing just what I agreed with then this would be a lot smaller and I wouldn't include the sources who have been discredited but are used by idiotic fucktards like yourself. I am not counting the ones here that you just make up as we've seen you do in your various different guises and manifestations on different forums over the last couple of years.

This is here to help people with their sourcing on this issue, because idiots like you keep throwing (sometimes non-existent) shit into the bucket and claiming it is gold. If you want to wallow in your (sometimes non-existent) shit in your mentally-ill world then that's fine with me, but stop trying to piss in a perfectly decent bucket like a fruit-picking spic will you.

Incidentally a jew can be anti-jewish you know: to work that out you merely need pick up a book on jewish history (for example try Johannes Pfefferkorn). Or are you going to try to claim that Nicholas Donin's advocacy of wiping out the jews in France was not anti-jewish?

Anyway back on ignore you go Sybil.

Appendix II

Jews in the Comintern 1919-1943

The below tables have been taken from Peter Huber, 1998, ‘Structure of the Moscow apparatus of the Comintern and decision-making’ in Tim Rees, Andrew Thorpe (Eds.), 1998, ‘International Communism and the Communist International 1919-1943’, 1st Edition, Manchester University Press: Manchester, pp. 41-64. Since it would be impossible to reproduce the tables as they are presented by Huber: I have changed their format slightly as to show the same information but in a manner more suited to being published on a forum or a blog.

We should additionally note that these tables are limited in what they tell us in so far as some of the surveys conducted by the Comintern on their staff had separate categories for jews and others did not. These surveys also relied on the self-identification of a jew as being jewish rather than say being Russian or Estonian (i.e. if a jew identified themselves as a Russian then they were held to be Russian by the Comintern survey): hence making the lists the bare minimum number of jews, by which we mean in this instance an individual who has at least one jewish grandparent, who were involved with the surveying Comintern departments.

Of the tables that Huber produces only two include ‘jewish’ as a nationality, this is unfortunate as it leaves many interesting questions unanswered as Huber himself points out on p. 44, these are tables 3.2 (Apparatus staff according to nationality, 1933) and 3.7 (Members of the restructured Liaison service (S.S) in 1940). (1) Despite these limitations however these tables allow us to gain some insight into what occurred to jews working in the Comintern between 1933 and 1940: it also allows us to reasonably suggest that if the Comintern conforms to the general pattern, regarding the amount of jews in the higher and responsible echelons of the Soviet state and the Bolshevik party in 1917, the amount of jews in the Comintern in 1919 would have been either higher or roughly equal to the number of jews in the Comintern in 1933. (2)

The reason for this decline in the number of jews can be reasonably ascribed to two causes: the need to have less jewish personnel in the Comintern to counter the ‘counter-revolutionary’/‘reactionary’ argument that Bolshevism was a jewish conspiracy (which was by 1933 a major impediment to the spread of communism among the ‘working class’) and racial conflict/competition between the different racial and sub-racial groups within the Comintern (best exemplified perhaps in Stalin’s use of the NKVD to ‘purge’ the Comintern, and old radicals in general, of those he perceived to be politically or ideologically dangerous of whom a significant proportion were jews [although one of heads of the NKVD at this time, Yagoda, was a jew]). (3)

Table 3.2 (Apparatus staff according to nationality, 1933)

Nationality %

Russian 47.3
Jewish 13.4
German 9.1
Latvian 5.7
French 3.6
English 3.2
Hungarian 2.7
Polish 2.7
Other 12.3

This table is self-explanatory and very suggestive in that a significant 13.4% of Comintern staff self-identified as jewish and there were doubtless many other jews within the Comintern staff who did not identify as jews and hence ascribed their nationality as something other than jewish. It clearly indicates the overrepresentation of the jews in the Comintern apparatus in 1933 before the ‘purge’ of the Comintern began.

Table 3.7 indicates to us that after the ‘purge’ of 1934-1939 the Comintern had a lot less jews in it than in 1933. Although Tables 3.3 and 3.7 aren’t directly comparable: they do however give us an idea of how much the percentage of jews was decreased in the Comintern by the ‘purge’. (4) While, of course, there maybe unrecognised jews in table 3.7: it still remains that a clear majority of those involved in this arm of the Comintern were likely Russians and not jews. In essence we have to recognise that the connection between jews and bolshevism is not as clear as it might at first seem.


(1) Huber points out on p. 64 n. 41 that this list excludes 8 administrative personnel.
(2) To see this pattern in action then one needs only note the steady decrease in the numbers of jews in the Politburo i.e. 1917: 5 out 7 (Kamenev, Lenin, Sokolnikov, Trotsky and Zionviev); 1921: 4 out of 8 (Kamenev, Lenin, Trotsky and Zionviev); (start of) 1926: 3 out of 14 (Kamenev, Trotsky and Zionviev); (end of) 1926: 1 out of 14 (Zionviev); 1927: 1 out of 17 (Kaganovich); 1930: 1 out of 15 (Kaganovich); 1934: 1 out of 15 (Kaganovich).
(3) For a detailed account of the NKVD’s ‘purge’ of the Comintern please see William Chase, 2001, ‘Enemies within the Gates? The Comintern and the Stalinist Repression, 1934-1939’, 1st Edition, Yale University Press: New Haven.
(4) We should also note that in anti-Semitic literature on the bolshevik revolution: you often find much material being purported regarding its early years as there is much information, although a significant part of it is not correct, about the role of jews in Bolshevism at that time, but the longer we travel into the history of the USSR the less we find that anti-Semitic authors are able to say about the role of jews in bolshevism. Anti-Semitic authors, such as Frank Britton, are usually forced to scrounge for tit-bits, using the (heavily jewish) spy rings for the USSR of the 1950s, to continue the jews and bolshevism thesis into, and beyond, the 1940s. Anti-Semites in general need to purport a more realistic view of the Soviet Union in acknowledging that while it was significantly jewish during its early period: that influence waned drastically as time went on due in the main to racial conflict/competition between jews and Slavs, which the later seems to have won.

Appendix III

Was Joseph Stalin Jewish?

A common assertion among anti-Semites is that Joseph Stalin, the infamous Soviet dictator, was in fact a jew. This argument is so tenuous that it can be dealt with relatively quickly. However it is important to state that this argument occurs with alarming rapidity despite the obviously problematic nature of the assertion: hence it is important to deal with the few ‘proofs’ offered for this argument.

The argument that Stalin was a jew would seem to have been popularised by the reference to it in Maurice Pinay’s famous anti-Semitic book, ‘The Plot against the Church’ [1], which was translated into at least three languages [2] and has been reprinted four times in English since its original publication [3]. Pinay argues as follows:

‘[…] at the head of the names stands Stalin himself, who for a long time was regarded as a Georgian of pure descent. But it has been revealed, that he belongs to the Jewish race; for Djougachvili, which is his surname, means “Son of Djou,” and Djou is a small island in Persia, whither many banished Portuguese “Gypsies” migrated, who late settled in Georgia.

Today it is almost completely proved, that Stalin has Jewish blood, although he neither confirmed or denied the rumours, about which mutterings began in his direction.’

Then if we compare this to the most commonly cited source on the internet for this allegation, to which many anti-Semites challenged on this subject reference back to. We are told as follows:

‘Stalin's childhood origins were supposedly Georgian, but the truth is his mother was Ossete, from the Khazarian region.In the Georgian language "shvili" means son of, or son, as in Johnson. "Djuga" means Jew. Therefore Djugashvili means Jewison.

So Joe Stalin's real name, before he changed it, was Joe Jewison. It gets better, his name was Joseph David Djugashvili, a typical Jewish name. During his revolutionary days he changed his name to "Kochba", the leader of the Jews during one of the anti-Roman uprisings of the Jews. Russians don't change their names. Georgians don't change their names. Jews change their names.

Stalin's mother Ekaterina did laundry and housekeeping for David Papisnedov, a local Jew, who was Stalin's real father. Their nickname for Stalin was "Soso". Stalin received Papisnedov at the Kremlin often. Comrade Papisnedov often was visited by Nikolai Przhevalsky, a Jewish trader, and he is also considered a possibility as Stalin's father.’

We can immediately see that Stalin's surname, Djougaschvili, meaning the ‘son of Djou’ has been transliterated by the author of the second; more modern, argument from the first argument (i.e. Pinay's) into being ‘son of a jew’ (the phonetics in English pronunciation apparently being similar). This has allowed the author of the second argument to claim that Stalin was jewish by taking the second part of Pinay’s assertion and combining it with the first via what I can only speculate to be the phonetic sound of the two words in English: ‘Djou’ and ‘jew’. We can see this referenced more in Pinay’s argument when he refers to Portuguese gypsies in that Sephardi jews (and some Ashkenazim) were known in Europe as ‘Portuguese’ (for example when you asked the question: ‘How many Portuguese lived in London in 1600?’ you would simply be asking how many jews and Marranos [secret jews who outwardly kept to Roman Catholicism but practiced jewish rites, fasts, and feasts privately] were in London in 1600). This might infer that Stalin’s parents were the descendents of settled Mizrahi and/or Sephardi jews, but this has been taken by the author of the second argument and folded into the claim that Stalin’s father was a jewish merchant and that Stalin’s surname means ‘son of a jew’ or ‘Jewison/Jewson’ in English.

Therefore we first of all establish the ostensible evolution of this argument in noting how close the arguments are, but how the second oft-cited argument likely takes Pinay’s [6] argument and then twists it into a new form.

If we look at both arguments: we can see they particular stress on the meaning of the surname ‘Djougachvili’ or ‘Djugashvili’ and that in Pinay’s opinion it means ‘son of Djou’ [7] and in the second argument it means ‘son of a jew’/’Jewison’. Neither of these are, in fact, correct since the word ‘Djuga’ (or ‘Dzhuga’) in old Georgian does not mean ‘jew’ or ‘Djou’, but rather it roughly equates ‘steel’. The old Georgian words for jew were actually ‘Ebraeli’ or ‘Uriya’, which bear absolutely no resemblance to ‘Djuga’ or ‘Dzhuga’.

So Stalin’s surname would actually mean something equivalent to ‘son of steel’, which then makes sense of Stalin’s adoption of ‘Stalin’ as his surname, which in Russian roughly means ‘man of steel’ (‘Stal’ means 'steel' in Russian). Since in Stalin’s eyes he was the ‘son of steel’ in Georgia and hence has become the ‘man of steel’ in Russia. Hence Stalin didn’t change his name particularly much, but rather simply added in ‘man’ rather than ‘son’, which can easily be suggested to be a sign of his coming of age as an atheist marxist revolutionary and a devout follower of Lenin (rather than the seminary student on a scholarship from a poor broken family in a little town in Georgia).

Pinay’s argument is by the far the more sophisticated and educated out the two. Since his reference to Djou is a historically plausible one. Although I can find no reference to an island of/called ‘Djou’ outside of Pinay: it is quite possible that Pinay’s reference to an island where ‘Portuguese’ were sent is accurate. Since this was a policy in the Ottoman Empire who did send jews to economically backward areas in order to boost the economy in that area and make the territory more profitable for the Ottoman Sultan through his (largely jewish) tax-farmers, administrative and customs service. However since ‘Djougachvili’ does not actually mean ‘son of Djou’ Pinay’s argument must be regarded as incorrect, but it is at the very least an educated conjecture (since it is unlikely Pinay could have found a suitable source as to the meaning of old Georgian words). The second argument seems on the other hand to be completely inventing its interpretation out of whole cloth by alleging that ‘Djuga’ means ‘jew’ in old Georgian (again perhaps ‘Djuga’ if pronounced a certain way might sound like a similar word to ‘jew’: hence one could reasonably speculate that the origin of the argument made is from the author, whose first language is English, pronouncing the words and then because they to some ears might sound alike claiming that one means the other).

Hence Pinay’s argument can be reasonably said to be disposed of, but there still remain a series of assertions in the second argument that deserve consideration. Firstly is the note that Stalin’s mother, Ekaterina Gheladze Djugashvili, was from the ‘Khazarian region’ is a indirect argument by implication that Stalin was jewish since it is commonly claimed by anti-Semites that Ashkenazi jews are the descendents of the jewish Khazar Khanate (or Khazaria). There is no evidence for this on both counts: i.e. we have no evidence that Stalin is descended from Khazars and secondly the evidence is heavily against the Khazars being the origin of the Ashkenazim [8].

Therefore we can only suggest this is an attempt to suggest a stronger argument that Stalin was of jewish descent than has been offered. It is in fact contradicted by the author in the reference page [9] he has added regarding Stalin’s mother when he asserts that she was that she was from tribe of the Alans [10] and not a Georgian. However this is essentially irrelevant since the Alan territory was in the borderlands of northern Georgia and they are closely related to the Georgians. Hence the argument being made not only contradicts the early inference, but then secondly derives into pure Semantics to claim that Stalin’s mother was not Georgian.

Further on this reference page it asserts that there are doubts as to the identity of Stalin’s biological father. There has been little doubt expressed in the biographies of Stalin for the simple reason that there is no evidence suggesting that Stalin’s father was anyone but Vissarion Ivanovich Djugashvili. This claim is asserted in more detail in the second argument when it is claimed that there are two candidates who are reported to be jews: David Papismedov and Nikolai Przhevalsky.

The claims are then referred back to the reference page and the detail of why the author thinks these two were Stalin’s father is given. The claim surrounding Nikolai Przhevalsky is given as follows under the title of ‘Stalin’s Real Father’:

‘The most notable such speculation was that Stalin's father was the Belorussian Nikolai Przhevalsky. The face of Joseph Stalin is almost identical to that of Nikolai Przhevalsky. Apparently Przhevalsky did stop off in the town of Gori in Georgia on his way to Tibet. According to the story, in Georgia he was hosted at the home of wealthy Georgian where Ekaterina Gheladze worked as a maid. According to the speculation Przhevalsky seduced Ekaterina and left her pregnant as he journeyed off to Tibet. According to the story the Georgian family (or Przhevalsky) to avoid scandal paid Vissarion Djugashvili a substantial amount of money for him to marry Ekaterina Gheladze and this was the source of the capital for him to have run a shoe-making business employing about thirty cobblers. He subsequently lost the business and later died in a drunken knife fight.

There appears to be no hard evidence for Przhevalsky being the father of Stalin. There was a city in Siberia that was named after Przhevalsky. The Bolsheviks changed the name after they came to power but Stalin later changed it back to Przhevalsky. However it would not be out of line for Stalin to deviously promote the notion that he was really Russian rather than Georgian. he was of Jewish blood from the Dinaric race.’

It is worth noting firstly that the use of the qualifiers ‘apparently’, ‘according to the story’, ‘according to speculation’ denotes that these are essentially bits of gossip heard and enlarged upon as time has gone on (if indeed they are genuine: since no originating source is cited) in the manner consistent with folklore in general. If I was to suggest that Elizabeth I of England was jewish and then say ‘according to speculation’, ‘according to the story’ etc ad infinitum: then I could not suggest that this is the case without corroborating sources of a primary nature or examining the secondary literature explaining why they are wrong. The author does neither so one must take his words with more than a pinch of salt.

The author himself admits that there is ‘no hard evidence’, but then speculates in his title that Przhevalsky is ‘Stalin’s Real Father’ and then asserts in direct contradiction to the earlier sentences in his own paragraph that Stalin ‘was of Jewish blood from the Dinaric race’. In fact Przhevalsky during his travels to the East was in a different part of central Asia during 1878-1879 (the years between which Stalin was presumably conceived) and there is no evidence that he even visited Georgia in his lifetime. There also no evidence I am aware of that Przhevalsky was jewish, but rather a scion of an aristocratic Polish family (not a ‘jewish trader’ as asserted in the second argument, but rather a famous Russian geographer). If we have no evidence to suggest that Stalin was the product of a lover's tryst between Przhevalsky and Stalin's mother then we cannot assert that it is simply a fact as the author does: contradicting himself in the process.

We must secondly note that this story about Stalin’s father being paid off to marry Stalin’s mother and that Stalin’s father is without any apparent factual foundation. Stalin’s father would seem to have created his own success by hard work (employing several apprentices [the number of 30 seems excessive]), which then deteriorated as he began to drink heavily and came into conflict with Stalin’s mother over Stalin’s future occupation. Stalin’s father also did not die in a drunken knife fight (this is again a folkloric rumour), but rather from tuberculosis and pneumonia according to current academic opinion.

Thirdly the assertion that the changing of the name of the city of Karakol, the city’s original name, back to Przhevalsk in 1939 by Stalin after it had been changed back to Karakol in 1921 by the Bolsheviks (in reaction to popular demand) is not an indication or evidence of Przhevalsky’s asserted status as Stalin’s biological father, but rather that Stalin was changing place names back to those of great Russian heroes (of which Przhevalsky was but one: as a famous Russian geographer) in order in inspire nationalism in his population (which was a key element in much of Stalin’s internal policy).

Fourthly in the second argument the author claims that Przhevalsky often visited David Papismedov who was a local jew in Gori and whom was one of Stalin’s mother’s laundry clients. Papismedov certainly showed kindness to the young Stalin giving him books to read and giving donations of money to his mother. However there is no evidence Przhevalsky even knew Papismedov (or visited Georgia or Gori for that matter) let alone was a frequent guest in Papismedov’s house: as I have said Przhevalsky was at the time (1878-1879) far away in the East and a long way away from Georgia.

This leads us to discuss the second alternative candidate for Stalin’s biological father: David Papismedov. Who unlike Nikolai Przhevalsky was, in fact, jewish. The evidence cited for this is even thinner than that given for Przhevalsky’s fatherhood and it consists entirely of Stalin’s relationship with Papismedov, which is given on the reference page as:

‘Stalin's mother Ekaterina did laundry and housekeeping for David Papisnedov, a local Jew, who was Stalin's real father. Their nickname for Stalin was "Soso". Stalin received Papisnedov at the Kremlin often.' [12]

The fact that Stalin’s mother did the laundry and housekeeping for a local jew who treated her and Stalin himself comparatively well, certainly in comparison to Vissarion, does not make him the father of Stalin nor does it offer evidence of such. Since Stalin’s mother had other clients, for whom she did laundry and housekeeping as well, if Stalin was not Vissarion’s son then one would have to look at the other clients who would have equal opportunity of having a lovers tryst with Stalin’s mother as Papismedov. In terms of giving Stalin’s mother money and Stalin books to read: these can be seen simply as acts of charity rather than an acknowledgement of paternity. It is well to remember that acts of charity by monastic orders, for example, towards single mothers or married women does not mean the monk or monks having sired that single mother’s or married woman’s children. So therefore we can’t simply assert that because Papismedov was kind to Stalin and his mother that he was Stalin’s real biological father and that as a result Stalin is jewish.

Papismedov did indeed call Stalin by his family nickname; ‘Soso’, but then so did his mother and Vissarion. For it was a family tradition with Vissarion’s family nickname being: ‘Beso’. Again it is not proof of paternity or an acknowledgement of such for a family friend to call Stalin by his family nickname and speculations of such can hold no evidential merit. When Papismedov went to the Kremlin he went there to look for a boy of whom he was presumably fond and to see if he was still alive (and if so what had happened to him). Stalin greeted him much as he did any old friend whom he thought warmly of and was quite congenial and friendly towards him as an early kind influence in his life (who he probably saw as giving him the means and the skills to begin his career as a marxist revolutionary i.e. books). It is again not an argument in favour of Papismedov’s paternity that Stalin treated him well when he came to the Kremlin, of his own volition, looking for Stalin. In fact had Papismedov been Stalin’s father and Stalin had known this there would have been no reason for Stalin not to openly proclaim this when he was the Soviet dictator, but yet he did not.

Hence we must conclude that the claim that either Nikolai Przhevalsky or David Papismediv was Stalin’s biological father is without foundation and until sufficient primary evidence is brought forward for this interpretation of the argument that Stalin must be regarded as nothing but un-evidenced speculation.

The only other piece of evidence brought forward to support the contention that Stalin was jewish by this second argument is that Stalin used the name; ‘Kochba’, in his early revolutionary days. Kochba, or more properly bar Kochba, is a reference to the jewish leader of the Bar Kochba revolt against Rome in 132-135 A.D. In fact Stalin didn’t use ‘Kochba’ but rather ‘Koba’. Koba is a mythological figure in old Georgian literature roughly approximate to the figure of Robin Hood: i.e. a noble outlaw who robbed from rich and gave to the poor. The parallel between the figure of Koba and Stalin’s political beliefs is obvious as it coincides with Marxist ideas concerning the redistribution of wealth from the rich to the poor to make a more equal society. Bar Kochba was a fanatical jewish zealot who fought on religious grounds to install a jewish theocratic dictatorship free from Roman control on Judea (as well as potentially much of North Africa, Syria and Cyprus). The parallel, in Stalin's marxist thought, between Stalin the Marxist revolutionary and bar Kochba the fanatical jewish zealot is non-existent, but between Stalin and Koba the Georgian Robin Hood: it is obvious.

Therefore we can only conclude in summation that there is no evidence that Josef Stalin was in fact jewish and that the evidence that has been advanced for this being the case is inaccurate, highly speculative and possibly deliberately distorted.

Part IX

‘The greater part of the guard was dispatched to the Front: only two shifts remained. One was almost entirely composed of Jews. It was even called “the Jewish Guard.” The majority of these Jews treated us very well, and individual Red Guards showed a great understanding, and openly condemned the executions.’ (171) [+]

‘Our courier, or interpreter, or whatever he was, kept his eye on us sharply for the rest of the journey. He was a young Jew, typical of a multitude of others who were thriving under the service of the Soviet Government, for they seem to have a peculiar facility for adapting themselves to conditions under which the ordinary man sinks. I was old enough to have been his father, and found his rudeness almost unbearable. He was constantly breaking into conversation with my wife, and he was amazingly lacking in common sense. His chief aim seemed to be to pump absurd propaganda into the ears of strangers.’ (172) [+]

‘As we were leaving the hotel for a walk through the city, a young Jew by the name of Feinberg stopped us at the door. There seemed to be no way of dodging these interpreters.’ (173) [+]

‘There entered an American Jew with a red badge in his buttonhole which showed him to be a member of the Communist party. I went over to him and found that he was holding forth to two of the Americans about the blessings of Soviet rule.’ (174) [+]

‘I gather from what I have heard in the famine districts. The speculators, often Jewish, in the provinces have fought shy of administrative positions, and have preferred instead to capture the less arduous and more profitable jobs in charge of Soviet warehouses and stores. The notorious “Soviet mice” who eat the corn in the Government stores, not to speak of other food-stuffs, wares, and goods, still flourish in these provincial places.’ (175) [+-]

‘The number of Jews in the Foreign Office and the Soviet institutions I called at, is extraordinary. It is exceptional in Moscow to find anybody there in an at all responsible post who is not of that race.’ (176) [+]

‘Few people ventured to be so outspoken as this, for everybody feared the four or five Communists who were attached to the regiment to eavesdrop and report any remarks detrimental to the Bolsheviks. One of these Communists was a Jew, a rare occurrence in the rank and file of the army. He disappeared when the regiment was moved to the front, doubtless having received another job of a similar nature in a safe spot in the rear. The only posts in the Red army held in any number by Jews are the political posts of commissars. One reason why there appear to be so many Jews in the Bolshevist administration is that they are nearly all employed in the rear, particularly those departments (such as of food, propaganda and public economy) which are not concerned with fighting. It is largely to the ease with which Jewish Bolsheviks evade military service, and the arrogance some of them show toward the Russians whom they openly despise, that the intense hatred of the Jew and the popular belief in Russia that Bolshevism is a Jewish “put-up” are due. There are, of course, just as many Jews who oppose the Bolsheviks, and many of those are lying in prison.’ (177) [+]

‘The singers had studiously rehearsed, the execution was excellent, the enthusiasm they aroused was unbounded, and they were recalled again and again. They would probably have gone on endlessly had not the Jewish agitator, who was acting as master of ceremonies and who had to make a speech later, announced that they must get along with the programme.’ (178) [+]

‘Intellectuality in the party has always been represented largely, though by no means exclusively, by Jews, who dominate the Third International, edit the Soviet journals, and direct propaganda. It must never be forgotten, however, that there are just as many Jews who are opposed to Bolshevism, only they cannot make their voice heard.’ (179) [+]

‘In discussing with the Bolsheviks, out of official hours, the internal Russian situation, the Lithuanians asked how, in the view of the universal misery and lack of liberty, the Communists continued to maintain their dominance. To which a prominent Bolshevik leader laconically replied: “Our power is based on three things: first, on Jewish brains; secondly, on Lettish and Chinese bayonets; and thirdly, on the crass stupidity of the Russian people.”’ (180) [+]

‘The Social-Democratic members were, however, mostly Jews or Georgians; and this predominance of the foreign element was greatly strengthened when the Bolshevik leaders returned to Russia.’ (181)

‘The next day I made the acquaintance of my fellow travellers, an elderly Russian from Dvinsk, a Pole and a barely twenty-year-old Jew just home from exile in a threadbare suit of blue cheviot and broken boots, but with eyes that were fire. He was an Under-Commissar in the food distribution bureau at Petrograd, he said.’ (182) [+]

‘The first room I came into harboured “The Third Internationale Executive and Agitation Committee of Bjelof for the Propagation of Bolshevistic Ideas among the Prisoners of War in Russia.” Here sat a Hungarian, and a Viennese Jew, but evidently they were not the ones I was to see. The corridor on the first floor was full of people. They were petitioners and persons waiting to see the head commissar of Bjelof, sent out by the Soviets’ central committee in Moscow – Mr. Rosenfeld, the very man I wished to get in touch with. As it was still in those when a foreigner in Russia commanded just so much respect as he demanded, I went past the whole mob right into the audience room.

There were six or seven persons in the place, and it was a little while before I got my bearings. Two soldiers sat on a bed, with their rifles between their boots, and smoked cigarettes, and another man in a soldier’s cape lay in a corner and slept loudly on a pile of cartridge belts. A pale man, with a face like yellow peas, sat at a small table on which there was a typewriter, and ate soup. In the middle of the room a man, whom I supposed to be Rosenfeld, without a collar and wearing long boots, was conferring with two tousled youths in the black blouses of the Russian Intelligentsia. Rosenfeld was a fattish Jew of about 35-40 years. I drew his attention to me by handing him a glazed card with all the titles which a foreigner travelling in Russia does not disdain to claim. Rosenfeld willingly let himself be impressed, he overwhelmed me with politeness and excuses for the untidiness of the place, with bows and noble gestures. He personally took a machine gun off an armchair that I might sit down. He was apparently figuring out something else while he studied me and my errand. The man with the soup was set to click off a flattering letter of introduction for me and Rosenfeld gave all my papers his personal vise.’
(183) [+]

‘It was already growing light when I was wakened and presented for the commissar, a young Jew with a highly sympathetic personality, and for his adjutant who quite the opposite was a highly sinister person, no doubt a Pole, who looked as if he might very well be his own executioner also.’ (184) [+]

‘The President of the soviet and the Commandant of the two – he combined the two offices – was a Red Jew who had some manufactured name which I have forgotten. His age was uncertain.’ (185) [+]

‘One surprise of this Revolution of surprises was the extraordinary influx of Jews into Petrograd and the prohibited towns and districts when the victory of the people was assured.’ (186) [+]

‘If Witte had made his proposal sooner – it might have met with a different reception. But now – now the Jewish cause is indissolubly bound up with the revolutionary Bund. The Jews will owe their emancipation to force, and they will see to it that the fore is sufficient to burst their bonds and give them all their rights.’ (187) [+]

‘You see, we were in the Russian Social Democratic Labor Party, but there were various organizations of the Jews. The Marxist non-Zionist organization of Jews was the Bund. Abramovich was a leading man with the Mensheviks, but was also a leader of the Bund. But then there were two Zionist socialist parties, one called the Socialist Zionists (Sotsialist sionisty), ideologically like the SR’s, and then there were the Poaleitsion, which means in Hebrew “the workers of Zion.” I think they had a Marxist orientation, but the difference between them and the Bund was that the Bund did not believe in Zionism.’ (188) [+J]

‘After the talk there was a discussion in which I participated. My main opponent was Iurii Petrovich Figatner, quite a remarkable man, a Bolshevik, an old revolutionary, Jewish, about then years older than I. He had something to do with the Kislovodosk Soviet.’ (189) [+J]

‘In the summer of 1900, Mendel Rosenbaum, a Russian of Jewish extraction, who had been captured at the frontier in October, 1898, attempting to import prohibited literature, thrown into prison, and removed to the provinces as a preliminary to Siberian exile, managed to escape to Switzerland with the aid of a small sum granted from a special fund raised by the Society of Friends of Russian Freedom.’ (190)

Part X

‘Communist front will hold huge meeting at “Polo Grounds.” On May 15 a meeting and demonstration, called “Salute to the Jewish State in Palestine,” will be held at Polo Grounds, home of NY Giant baseball team. This meeting is another example of Communist efforts to horn in on Palestine question and exploit it for Stalin’s purpose.

The front that’s planning this Polo Grounds meeting is American Committee of Jewish Writers, Artists and Scientists. Among its leader are such men as Albert E Kahn, a Communist Party member who’s a high officer of International Workers Order, Communist fraternal insurance society.

With Gromyko as a speaker, the American Comm of Jewish Writers, Artists and Scientists held a big “USA, USSR, Palestine friendship dinner” last Dec 30. On Nov 12 the same front held a meeting to celebrate 30th anniversary of Bolshevik Revolution in Russia.

Dr Albert Einstein has let himself be roped in as an honorary president of this front. Most of the great scientists of the world Einstein the greatest of them all. It’s a pity that he doesn’t recognize his lack of expertness in political questions. He isn’t a Communist and in fact has expressly opposed Moscow on several matters… and yet he has been sucked into a number of Communist fronts.’

‘Shipler quickly picked the state of Israel as new recipient of his “award,” and induced Maj Aubrey S Eban, representative of Israel and of the Jewish Agency at United Nations, to agree to come to the dinner and accept the “award” in Israel’s behalf. But after learning that Marshall had rejected it, Eban did the same. He explained that he had “accepted in good faith,” not knowing that his doing so might arose controversy.

Meanwhile Shipler tried to raise money on the basis of Eban’s acceptance. He telegrapher some supporters of Zionism, telling them of the “award” to Israel, and asking each to contribute $500 as cost of two tables, at $25 per plate.’

‘After Marshall rejected the “award,” Shipler hastily picked a substitute guest of honor. This was Maj Aubrey S Eban, representative of Israel and of the Jewish Agency at the United Nations. He was to accept a special citation to Israel. But after Eban learned of Marshall’s cancellation, he cancelled, too. So Shipler got Dr Israel Goldstein, former president of Zionist Organization of America, to substitute for Eban and accept the citation. Bishop Oxnam made the presentation.’ (193)

‘A considerable number, though by no means a majority, of the Russian Liberals are Jews, and Russian Liberals do not at all endeavour to hide this fact. The consequence is that the union of the Russian Liberals with all the persecuted races has been all the more firmly cemented.’ (194)

‘It was a rude shock to be brought back to an appreciation of the fact that in the events of the day and in the new power which was ruling Russia, there was feverishly and aggressively at work an influence bitterly antagonistic to the tradition and spirit that these wonderful old buildings represented, - the influence of men who hated, despised and scorned them, - the influence of the Russian Jew.’ (195) [+]

‘Kerenski’s famous and fatal order No. I had reached the front. My friend kept his temper and asked what authority there was, then, if the officers were deposed. “Oh, a committee runs things now.” “And whom have you chose as head of your committee?” my friend asked. He was astonished to hear that the only Jew of the company had been elected chairman. “But,” he expostulated in wonder, “I thought you hated this man, despised and distrusted him.” “Yes,” said the soldier, “we do hate him and we don’t trust him at all, but you see he can talk and we can’t. He understands the new order and we don’t. We need a man who can talk, so we elected him.”’ (196) [+]

‘I had been surprised at the sweeping way in which Russians had accused the Jews of being responsible for the terrors of the October revolution. I had discounted most of it as race prejudice. But what I had seen of the peasant character, which made possible such as incidents as those described in the story of the Russian officer, and the prominence of the Jews in the local Soviets in the towns I had visited, made it seem reasonable to suppose that the Jews were to play a part in the Bolshevik movement out of all proportion to their numbers. The dominance of the Jew in the affairs of Russia where he had so long been an outcast, which a year ago would have seemed a fantastic dream, now bade fair to become an accomplished fact.’ (197) [+]

‘The wholesale confiscation of the goods of the Burjui having provided insufficient to finance the needs of the Akmolinsk Provincial Soviet, he, along with a dozen Russians, had been arrested on the charge of having more than ten thousand rubbles in the bank. They were hauled before the governor of the province, an energetic Jew who, in spite of an exaggeratedly curt and businesslike manner, had left a favorable impression on me when I called on him. They had been suddenly offered the alternative of paying over a certain sum in cash or going to jail.’ (198) [+]

‘A look of steady malignity not easily forgotten flashed from under the bushy eyebrows of Geitzman, a New York Jew, whom some trick of fortune had thrown into a position of power here in the middle of Siberia, as we sat opposite him in his bare little office discussing ostensibly a question of passports, but really wondering how long the game he was playing would last, and what would be the outcome.’ (199) [+]

‘For nearly a month, on the other hand, on the Pacific, in Japan, and in Vladivostok I was associated with a group of twenty-two political refugees of a high type, and from them I formed some estimate of the effect the leadership of the returning revolutionists would have upon the course of the social movement in Russia. Fifteen of these persons had been arrested forty times in all, and they had served in prison an aggregate of twenty-two years. Five of them had been exiled to Siberia and had spent there altogether five years. None of them had committed any deed contrary to American law. They were persecuted for engaging in socialist propaganda and for organizing workingmen. But for two Letts, all the party were Jews. None of them was over thirty-five years of age, and most of them, after several years’ residence in the United States, had not passed the late twenties.’ (200) [+]

‘An acquaintance of mine, who took particular interest in these returning delegations, told me that there seemed to be a preponderance of Jews among these immigrants, but that they included exponents of every conceivable theory of government, misgovernment and anarchy.’ (201) [+-]

‘Hundreds of young people flock to the university towns who have only so far enjoyed a very superficial education in the schools and colleges and clerical seminaries of provincial towns. In the country they go to the high schools s, science and technical institutes, with the intention of gaining further development to fit themselves for the learned and practical professions. To these are joined the Jews and the foreign nations in the south of the empire, and particularly countless Jewesses from Poland and South Russia, who throng to the courses given in the girls’ high schools. These form the Radical element.’ (202) [J]

‘That resolution was sent to Trotzky, the Peoples’ Commissaire for Foreign Affairs; Trotzky was at Brest-Litovsky negotiating a separate peace, and his assistant, a Russian Jew named Zalkend, forwarded the resolution to me saying he felt it his duty to do so.’ (203) [+]

‘“I have just been called to the phone and heard that Smolny Institute, Bolshevik Headquarters, has formally announced that a revolution similar to that in Russia has begun in Germany. The Bolshevik leaders here, most of whom are Jews and 90 per cent of whom are returned exiles, care little for Russia or any other country but are internationalists and they are trying to start a worldwide social revolution.’ (204) [+]

‘At this time the Bolshevik Government at Moscow had a representative at Vologda in the person of Vosnesenski, who occupied the position of Chief of the Far Eastern Division in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Vosnesenski was a shrewd Jew.’ (205) [+]

‘Among the prominent Stakhanovite workers we find many Jews like Blidman, Khenkin, Yussim and others, whose names are known all over the country. Jewish Red Armymen who took part in the battles at Lake Hassan were among those decorated by the Soviet Government for their heroism and devotion. Jewish names are among those of the Heroes of the Soviet Union, as well as among those of the Deputies to the Supreme Soviet of the U.S.S.R. and the Supreme Soviets of the Union Republics.’ (206) [*J]

‘Among the builders of Birofeld is the Lishnyansky family. The wife – Leah Lishnyansky – the best milkmaid on the collective farm – is now a member of the Soviet Parliament, a Member of the Supreme Soviet of the U.S.S.R. She was one of the first settlers and has set many examples of great devotion to the cause of building up the Jewish Autonomous Region.’ (207) [*J]

‘In view of its considerable progress and achievements the Soviet Government, on May 7, 1934, proclaimed the Birobidjan district the Jewish Autonomous Region. A Jewish state unit has been created in the Soviet Union.’ (208) [*J]

‘The Russian or Ukrainian who lives in the region takes an active part in building up the Jewish Soviet state, and is just as enthusiastic about it as the Jewish worker or peasant. Many Russians in the Jewish Autonomous Region are learning to speak Yiddish. Russian children sing Jewish songs and speak the Jewish language. Russian workers attended performances at the Jewish theatre and applaud the Jewish actors.’ (209) [*J]

‘The Soviet Jew feels fully at home in the country; he lives the great life of the country, is not afraid of difficulties and faces the world and nature as an equal, as a builder of Socialism, as a worthy son of his Soviet homeland.

Like the members of all the other nations of the Soviet Union, the Soviet Jew is alive to all the beauty of the world. Enjoying the full assistance of the Soviet state, which helps him in his labours and struggle, bound with fraternal ties to all the nations of the Soviet Union, and having his Jewish national Soviet state unit, the Soviet Jew is indeed an equal among equals.’

(192) Anon., ‘Counterattack’, May 28th, 1948, p. 1. The Shipler referred to is the Reverend Guy Emery Shipler and his ‘The Churchman’ magazine, which ‘Counterattack’ lists as a communist or pro-communist front organisation. This quotation is suggestive of the readiness of communists and Zionist jews to work together as long as it wasn’t contrary to the interests of either party and the only reason, in this stated case, that there was a refusal was because it would be ‘controversial’ (i.e. detrimental to their propaganda image) for Israel and Zionists to do so. This is further confirmed by the quotation from n. 193 below.

Appendix IV

Jews and American Communism

Of the thirty-four autobiographical manuscripts owned by New York University’s Tamiment Library and Robert F. Wagner Labor Archives; the fact that thirteen are written by jews about themselves is truly remarkable. This means that a whopping thirty-eight percent of these important manuscripts regarding American communism and the far left are jewish in origin, which is well above the proportion of jews in the American population and of note as many of these individuals were leaders or important figures inside the American far left during the early to mid twentieth century. For the sake of completeness we list the names and quote part of the biographical added by New York University’s archivists: (1)

Israel Amter (1881-1954), was a founding member of the Communist Party, USA and served as its representative to the Comintern, and as head of the New York State Communist Party.

Alexander Bittelman (1890-1982), was a Communist activist and theoretician. His typescript "Things I Have Learned," describes his childhood and radical activities in Russia, arrival in the United States in 1912, early Socialist connections, formation of the American Communist Party, factional feuds within the Communist movement, comments on its important personalities such as Earl Browder, William Z. Foster, Jay Lovestone, Charles E. Ruthenberg; contains reflections on the New Deal and Cold War; thoughts on Bittelman's imprisonment for Communist activities; concern for Jewish survival; and reflections on the world ca. 1963.

Harry Fleischman (1914-2004), was a labor and socialist activist who, as a teenager joined the Young People's Socialist League. His activities in the Socialist Party included serving as National Chairman of the Red Falcons, the Party's organization for children (1936), regional director of the Indiana-Illinois Socialist Party (1942-50), and campaign manager for Norman Thomas's presidential campaigns in 1944 and 1948. These experiences informed his book, Norman Thomas: A Biography (1964). Fleischman also worked as labor and political editor of the Voice of America (1951-53), as director of labor and race relations at the American Jewish Committee, and was a board member, and later chair of the Workers Defense League, a nonprofit worker advocacy organization.

David Greenberg. This collection includes contains the manuscript of the unpublished anthology, "Behind Bars: The Prison Experiences of War Resisters," edited by David F. Greenberg and Beverly D. Houghton. The anthology contains essays by resisters to the Vietnam War regarding their experiences in various prisons and jails.

J. B. S. (Jacob Benjamin Salutsky) Hardman (1882-1968) was a Russian-born author, social philosopher, labor editor and leader. His incomplete autobiographical manuscript titled Odyssey, along with research files for projected chapter titles, covers his work for the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America as director of education and cultural activities and as editor of its organ, The Advance (1920-44), Brookwood Labor College, the Jewish Socialist Federation, his editorship of the American Labor Monthly, his service on the C.I.O.-New York State Radio, Press, and Education Committee, family matters, writing projects, and other political activities.

Israel Kugler (1917-2007) was a graduate of City College, earned a Ph.D. from New York University in sociology and taught for many years at New York Community College. He was a member of the Young People's Socialist League and later of the Socialist Party. He was a founding member and president of the United Federation of College Teachers (UFCT) and a founding member and officer of the Professional Staff Congress (PSC), the faculty/staff union at the City University of New York (CUNY). He led the historic 1966-1967 faculty strike at St. John's University. Raised in the traditions of immigrant Jewish socialism, he was a life-long devotee of Yiddish culture and served as national president of the Workmen's Circle, board member of the Jewish Labor Committee and president of the Three Arrows Cooperative Society.

Miriam Moskowitz. The collection contains an autobiographical typescript "Phantoms of Spies Run Amok and An Odyssey of Surviving McCarthyism," describing her 1950 arrest, conviction and prison sentence for conspiracy to obstruct justice for impeding a grand jury investigation of atomic espionage - she was charged with the knowledge that Harry Gold had intended to lie to the grand jury. The typescript also includes her memories of her time, along with Ethel Rosenberg, in the Women's House of Detention in New York City, her life after release from prison, and the continuing debates about the guilt or innocence of those accused of espionage.

Charles C. Recht (1887-1965) was born in Bohemia to Jewish parents, emigrated to the United States, graduated from New York University Law School, and served as general counsel for the New York Bureau of Legal Advice, which provided free legal service to men who resisted the new draft laws related to the entry of the United States into World War I. Recht also represented many radicals who faced deportation at that time, and later served as an officer of the American Committee for Protection of Foreign Born. From 1921 until 1933, when diplomatic relations were established, Recht officially represented Soviet interests in the U.S., and thereafter he continued to represent many Soviet citizens and organizations.

Morris Rosen was a carpenter, and a communist trade unionist.

This collection contains a 56 pp. manuscript by Jack Schmulewitz, about his parents Julius Schmulewitz (1895-1966) and Lilly Jacobowitz Schmulewitz (1902-1968). Julius was a member of the Bakery and Confectionary Workers International Union, Local 3.

Helen Sobell was the wife of Morton Sobell, who was convicted, in 1951,along with Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, of espionage, for transmitting information about the construction of the atomic bomb to the Soviet Union.

Baruch Vladeck (1886-1938), a socialist and Jewish leader, was born near Minsk, Russia in 1886. He was involved in radical activities in Russia until in 1908, fearful of arrest and exile, he fled to the United States. Vladeck was subsequently a leader in the American Socialist Party and editor of the Jewish Daily Forward and served on the New York City Board of Aldermen (1916), City Housing Authority (1934) and City Council (1937). He was one of the founders of the American Labor Party. He headed a number of organizations, including the Jewish Labor Committee, which organized rescue work in Europe, and the Joint Distribution Committee, the coordinating agency of Jewish philanthropic disbursements abroad. He was active in his efforts to aid the daring underground operations of a group of dissident socialists known as the "New Beginning" in Germany during the early days of Hitler's rule.

Isidor Wisotsky (1895-1970). The collection contains a typescript of Isidor Wisotsky's unpublished autobiography, "Such a Life," in which he recounts his experiences as a Russian Jewish immigrant working in New York City's Lower East Side in the early twentieth century, his anarchist and Industrial Workers of the World activities, and his personal recollections of radical leaders.


(1) It should be noted that I am not exerting copyright over this material, but rather reproducing it for educative purposes per fair use as it is simpler to use what has already been written than to re-write it in my own words for such a short article. Further I have bolded the names of those of jewish origin who are mentioned in the biographical text provided by New York University.

Default Correction: ‘Judeo-Bolshevik Debacle’ Article

I have to say that everyone loves to be right about things, but at the same time everyone is human and we do make mistakes from time-to-time; especially when the person one is addressing isn’t specific enough or makes a mistake, which can sometimes lead you up blind alleys.

On the 5th of October 2008 we published an article entitled ‘A Judeo-Bolshevik Debacle’ written by a contributor. (1) Within that article we addressed Michael Hoffman’s ‘Judaic Communists’ list and one particular name (among many) we simply couldn’t find in the various lists of senior Soviet officials was the ‘Judaic Communist’ that Hoffman labels as ‘Dragonsky’ and asserts was a ‘Hero of the Soviet Union’ and a General in the Red Army.

As we could not find anyone of that name on the lists of ‘Heroes of the Soviet Union’ we naturally assumed that there must be another origin for the claim and we discovered that were as ‘Dragonsky’ listed as a ‘Hero of the Soviet Union’ in the G.I. Joe fictional universe. We believed that this; in absence of any other evidence, could only be the origin of this claim from Hoffman.

As it turns out there is an individual who Hoffman probably meant who was jewish and was a ‘Hero of the Soviet Union’ as well as being a General in the Soviet Armed Forces. However Hoffman; typically as regular readers will know, didn’t give enough detail to track this individual down and nor did he spell the individual’s surname correctly (which you would have thought would be kind of important with a list of ‘Judaic Communists’). In a book I have been reading I came across a mention of this character in a footnote and immediately recognised that he could well be the individual Hoffman meant. So for the sake of the factual record, intellectual honesty and being complete I reproduce the relevant footnote:

‘David Dragunsky (1910-1992) commanded tank units during World War II and participated in the capture of Berlin; he twice received the Hero of the Soviet Union award. After the war, when he reached the rank of major general, he participated in a number of events to honor the memory of Holocaust victims and advocated the construction of memorials; see Redlich, War, Holocaust and Stalinism, p. 231, for his letter to Mikhoels asking the committee to set up “monuments for the executed children, old people and women….. We must erect fences, monuments and inscriptions everywhere and show dates.” By the late 1960s Dragunsky was notorious for his activity in Soviet anti-Zionist propaganda and became chairman of the Soviet anti-Zionist Committee of 1983.’ (2)
