oston — Joseph Stalin

expressed one view of
anti-Semitism in 1931
and then issued a contrasting
opinion when Adolf Hitler
cast his shadow over much of
Europe.
"Anti-Semitism is an ex-
treme form of racial
chauvinism, a dangerous sur-
vival of cannibalism," he said
in 1931. "Anti-Semitism is
dangerous for the workers as
a false path leading them off
the correct road and taking
them into the jungle.
Therefore Communists, as
consistent internationalists,
cannot but be consistent
enemies of anti-Semitism."
Yet when much of the world
grew horrified beholding
Hitler's demoniac war
against the Jews, neither the
Soviet iron man nor any of his
top associates expressed
shock at the treatment of
Jews by Hitler and his
sycophantic stormtroolers.
At war's end, Stalin's own
war against Russia's Jews
started with a determination
to belittle-the stature of Jews,
to exclude them from party
membership, deny them
educational opportunities,
and to bar them from
diplomatic service.
This harsh policy reached-
its climax on Jan. 13, 1953,
when Pravda proclaimed the
unmasking of Jewish doctors
as "conspiratorial assassins of
Soviet leaders."
In the orgy of arrests, im-
prisonment, and cruel treat-
ment of eminent and indeed
innocent medical men that
followed, Pravda declared
_ nine outstanding doctors had
confessed murdering two
Soviet leaders.
Among those victims of the
infamous Russian Doctors'
Plot was one of Moscow's most
skillful and respected
pathologists, Dr. Yakov
Rapoport.
Now 90, Rapoport has
emerged as a hero in the news
in Moscow. After patiently
and quietly recording the
false accusations, the prison
ordeal and the nightmares
during his incarceration over
the years, Rapoport is now ex-
periencing the thrill of know-
ing that caring Muscovites
are reading his memoirs
published in the monthly
Druzhba Narodov.
The Doctors' Plot can be
traced back to the end of
1952, when Lidia Timashuk,
a radiologist in the Kremlin

Hospital and a secret agent of
the KGB, claimed in a
diabolical letter to Stalin that
she had noticed eminent doc-
tors employing wrong treat-
ment methods.
Stalin took personal charge
of the ensuing probe, telling
his agents they would lose
their heads if they failed to
obtain confessions from the
doctor "suspects."
Eventually Pravda was able
to report that eminent doctors
had confessed to murdering
two Soviet leaders and con-
spiring to murder three
others. The doctors were
branded foreign agents —
after all, most of them work-
• ed for the Joint Distribution
Committee.
By this time, Stalin's con-
tempt for what he viewed as
an international Jewish con-
spiracy had reached its acme.
When he sneered at
"Cosmopolitanism," he was
venting fierce 'hatred of Jews.
Anti-Semitism had become
an integral factor of official
Communist policy, while the
Zionist movement was seen
as counter-revolutionary.

"Anti-Semitism is
an extreme form of
racial chauvinism,
a dangerous
survival of
cannibalism,"
Stalin said.

_ He had looked with jaundic-
ed eye upon the marriage of
his daughter, Svetlana, to a
Jew and forced her to divorce
him. Likewise, his son, Vasili,
had to divorce his Jewish
wife.

Stalin, in time, had
journeyed from the days he
had branded anti-Semitism a
dangerous survival of can-
nibalism. There have even
been reports that he died in a
paroxysm of anti-Jewish
vituperation.

And what of the heinous
Doctors' Plot? Stalin died on
March 5, 1953. Twenty-nine
days later, Pravda revealed
the fakery of their savage
Doctors' Plot. Not long ago,
Mikhail Gorbachev made cen-
sorious mention of the Doc-
tors' Plot as had Nikita
Khrushchev in 1956. Dr.
Rapoport understands well
such twists and turns in the
history of the Soviet Union.
