Description - Stalin and the Jews by Arno Lustiger
Arno Lustiger, who had spent part of his youth in Nazi concentration camps and survived, takes the broad view of the Jewish ordeal under Stalin. There was a policy change of radical proportion toward the Jews by the Soviet government. This change took place after 1935 and reached its climax in the months before Stalin's death in March 1953. But there was also a post-Stalin anti-Semitic revival in Russia , culminating in the Brezhnev era, whose consequences can be felt to this day. This book sets itself apart from others on the subject as it analyses and documents the roots and the manner in which Stalin and other Soviet and Russian governments have always sought to manipulate anti-Semitism in Russia.
