Hebrew Writers in Soviet Russia Complain of Persecution by Yevsektzia

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

A world-wide protest against the persecution of the Hebrew language in Soviet Russia was demanded in a communication from a group of Hebrew writers in Leningrad addressed to the Hebrew labor daily, “Davar”.

The writers asked Hebraist organizations throughout the world to launch a protest movement against the Jewish section of the Communist Party which is persecuting Hebrew writers and preventing them from writing and publishing their Hebrew works.
