200 Yevsektzia Leaders to Lose Posts in Jewish Matters

Over two hundred Jewish leaders of the liquidated Jewish section of the Communist Party will lose their posts as supervisors of Jewish matters in forty districts of Russia, states the Moscow “Emes,” formerly the organ of the Jewish section of the party.

The Jewish Communists are gradually losing their dominating position in Jewish life in Russia in view of the decision of the central Communist Party to abolish the district centers for national minorities. In connection with this reorganization program it is also possible that the Jewish Communist papers appearing in Odessa, Berditchev, Kiev and Vitebsk, which are now subsidized by the district centers, may be compelled to discontinue publication.
