An Eye-Opening, Candid and Detailed Analysis of the Extensive Role of Jews in Soviet Communism. Jewish Leadership of GULAGS and the NKVD
Jewish author Yuri Slezkine has compiled near-encyclopedic levels of information in one volume. It examines virtually every imaginable aspect of what is sometimes called the ZYDOKOMUNA (Judeo-Bolshevism).
I let author Yuri Slezkine speak for himself.
RUSSIAN REVOLUTION: INSTIGATED, IN PART, BY OUTSIDERS (MOSTLY JEWS) FROM GERMANY
„According to the Provisional Government’s commissar for the liquidation of tsarist political police abroad, S. G. Svatikov, at least 99 (62.3 percent) of the 159 political émigrés who returned to Russia through Germany in 1917 in “sealed trains” were Jews.” (p. 152).
RUSSIAN REVOLUTION: IMPLICATIONS OF UNFOLDING EVENTS
„After the February Revolution, all army officers had become suspect as possible “counterrevolutionaries”; the new soldiers’ committees required literate delegates; many of the literate soldiers were Jews. Viktor Shklovsky, the literary scholar, estimated that Jews had made up about 40 percent of all top elected officials in the army. He had been one of them (a commissar)…” (p. 175).
„At the First All-Russian Congress of Soviets in June 1917, at least 31 percent of Bolshevik delegates (and 37 percent of Unified Social Democrats) were Jews. At the Bolshevik Central Committee meeting of October 23, 1917, which voted to launch an armed insurrection, 5 out of the 12 members present were Jews. Three out of seven Politbureau [Politburo] members charged with leading the October uprising were Jews (Trotsky, Zinoviev, and Grigory Sokolnikov [Girsh Brilliant]). The All Russian Central Executive Committee (VtsIK) elected at the Second Congress of Soviets (which ratified the Bolshevik takeover, passed the decrees on land and peace, and formed the Council of People’s Commissars with Lenin as chairman) included 62 Bolsheviks (out of 101 members). Among them were 23 Jews, 20 Russians, 5 Ukrainians, 5 Poles, 4 “Balts,” 3 Georgians, and 2 Armenians.” (p. 175).
JEWS AND THE MURDER OF TSAR NICHOLAS II AND THE ENTIRE ROYAL FAMILY
This following information confirms Robert Wilton and his THE LAST DAYS OF THE ROMANOVS:
„Early in the civil war, in June 1918, Lenin ordered the killing of Nicholas II and his family. Among the men entrusted with carrying out the order were Sverdlov (head of the the All-Russian Central Executive Committee in Moscow, formerly an assistant pharmacist), Shaia Goloshchekin (the commissar of the Urals Military District, formerly a dentist), and Yakov Yurovsky (the Chekist who directed the execution and later claimed to have personally shot the tsar, formerly a watchmaker and photographer).”
RUSSIAN CIVIL WAR (1917-1922): MASSIVE POGROMS WENT BOTH WAYS
„At the end of the civil war, in late 1920–early 1921, Béla Kun (the chairman of the Crimean Revolutionary Committee) and R. S. Zemliachka (Rozaliia Zal-kind, the head of the Crimean Party Committee and the daughter of a well-off Kiev merchant) presided over the massacre of thousands of refugees and prisoners of war who had stayed behind after the evacuation of the White Army.” (pp. 178-179).
JEWISH INFLUENCE FAR EXCEEDED THAT EXPECTED BY THEIR NUMBERS (BECAUSE OF
CRYPTO-JEWS, JEWISH ACTIVISM, HIGH VERBAL JEWISH INTELLIGENCE, AND JEWISH SPOUSES OF NON-JEWS)
„According to the historian of Leningrad Jewry Mikhail Beizer (and not accounting for pseudonyms), “It may have seemed to the general population that the Jewish participation in Party and Soviet organs was even more substantial because Jewish names were constantly popping up in newspapers. Jews spoke relatively more often than others at rallies, conferences, and meetings of all kinds.” (p. 176).
The relatively low overabundance of Jews in the leadership of the Cheka does not tell the full story:
„But even in the Cheka, Bolsheviks of Jewish origin combined ideological commitment with literacy in ways that set them apart and propelled them upward. In 1918…Jews made up…50 percent (6 out of 12) of the investigators employed in the department for combating counter-revolution.” (p. 177).
„Trotsky, Zinoviev, and Sverdlov were married to Russian women (Kamenev was married to Trotsky’s sister). The non-Jews Andreev, Bukharin, Dzerzhinsky, Kirov, Kosarev, Lunacharsky, Molotov, Rykov, and Voroshilov, among others, were married to Jewish women.” (p. 179).
SOVIET CONCENTRATION CAMPS (GULAGS): ADMINISTERED BY JEWS
„The Gulag, or Main Labor Camp Administration, was headed by ethnic Jews from 1930, when it was formed, until late November 1938, when the Great Terror was mostly over.” (p. 255).
„The culmination of the story of Jewish commissars in Soviet literature was the famous history of the construction of the White Sea Canal, 1931–34…The canal was built by labor camp inmates (“reforged” thereby into socially useful citizens). The construction was run by the secret police (the OGPU, the successor to the Cheka). All the top leadership positions were held by Jews: G. G. Yagoda, the OGPU official in charge of the project; L. I. Kogan, the head of construction, M. D. Berman, the head of the Labor Camp Administration (Gulag); S. G. Firin, the head of the White Sea Canal Labor Camp; Ya. D. Rappoport, the deputy head of construction and of the Gulag; and N. A. Frenkel, the head of work organization on the canal.” (p. 299).
STALIN’S WILLING EXECUTIONERS: THE NKVD—THE RAW INSTRUMENT OF COMMUNIST TERROR
„In 1923, at the time of the creation of the OGPU (the Cheka’s successor), Jews made up 15.5 percent of the “leading” officials and 50 percent of the top brass (4 out of 8 members of the Collegium’s Secretariat).” (p. 177).
„By 1934, when the OGPU was transformed into the NKVD, Jews `by nationality’ constituted the largest single group among the `leading cadres’ of the Soviet secret police (37 Jews, 30 Russians, 7 Latvians, 5 Ukrainians, 4 Poles, 3 Georgians, 3 Byelorussians, 2 Germans, and 5 assorted others). Twelve key NKVD departments and directorates, including those in charge of the police (worker-peasant militia), labor camps (Gulags), counterintelligence, surveillance, and economic wrecking were headed by Jews.” (p. 221).
„Indeed, the Soviet secret police—the regime’s sacred center, known after 1934 as the NKVD—was one of the most Jewish of all Soviet institutions. In January 1937, on the eve of the Great Terror, the 111 top NKVD officials included 42 Jews, 35 Russians, 8 Latvians, and 26 others. Out of twenty NKVD directorates, twelve (60 percent, including State Security, Police, Labor Camps, and Resettlement [deportations]) were headed by officers who identified themselves as ethnic Jews.” (p. 254).
