Jewish Life

This chapter reevaluates perspectives on the Soviet Union in the wake of increasing evidence of Soviet anti-Semitism. The wiping out of Soviet Jewish culture and the shutting down of Jewish cultural institutions, as well as the disappearance of leading Yiddish writers—among many other suspicious instances—have led many Jewish Communists to reconsider their stance regarding the Soviet Union and the actions of Joseph Stalin. This chapter, translated from an article in the Yiddish Communist daily, Di morgn frayhayt, seeks to address previous (willful or otherwise) ignorance of Soviet anti-Semitism, before turning to a more optimistic that the situation will soon improve in the Soviet Union.

Keywords:   Soviet Union, anti-Semitism, Jewish Communists, Soviet Jewish culture, Joseph Stalin
