White Russian and Moscow Wings of Yevsektzia at War

Download PDF for this date

War has been declared by the Moscow Yevsektzia group through Chemerisky, one of the leading Jewish Communists of Moscow, against the chiefs of the White Russian Yevsektzia (Jewish section of the Communist Party) because of late the White Russians have been aggressively criticizing Chemerisky and Litvakov, editor of “Emes.” The, revolt of the White Russian Yevsektzia is chiefly based upon the undesirability of the White Russian wing of the Yevsektzia being dominated by the Moscow faction and also because the White Russians appear to be disappointed in the Moscow leadership. In two full page articles in the “Ernes,” the Yevsektzia’s Moscow organ, Chemerisky argues that the White Russian revolt gives serious warning to the leaders of the White Russian Yevsektzia. On the other hand Oserhovitch, Ogursky and other White Russian leaders state openly that “we shall have no more mercy for our Moscow comrades and we shall tell them what we think of their leadership.”
