Abstract

I have been asked by the Editors to write an up-to-date postscript to my articles "The Jewish Problem in the USSR," which appeared in Monthly Review in March and April of 1953. The reason for the request was a feeling that perhaps my facts and my analysis would need some revision in the light of (1) the semi-official account of what happened to Jewish life and culture in the Soviet Union which was published in Poland in the April 4 issue of the Yiddish Communist newspaper Folks-Shtimme (reprinted in this country in the Morning Freiheit and, in English translation, in the May issue of Jewish Life); and (2) of Khrushchev's revelations about Stalin's treatment of some national minorities and Stalin's role in the "Jewish doctors' plot" (as published in the New York Times, June 5, 1956).
