Jewish Communists of White Russia Officially Reprimanded

Download PDF for this date

The Jewish Communists of White Russia were sharply reprimanded today by the central executive committee of the White Russian Communist Party for their illegal treatment of Jews in a number of small towns. After specifying the illegal activities of the Jewish Communists the central executive committee invites the Jewish Communist leaders to prepare within two months a concrete plan for carrying on productive work among the Jews of White Russia.

The Jewish Communists are criticized for illegally municipalizing many Jewish houses, for unlawfully confiscating the property of Jewish artisans who are in need and who should be treated more mildly and for depriving a great many Jews of their election rights and thus putting them in the declassed category when they should have been given complete citizenship rights.
