200 Jewish Physicians in New York Protest Moscow’s Charges

Some 200 Jewish physicians last night expressed their “shock and horror” at the Moscow charges against nine doctors, six of whom are Jews, of complicity in the death of top Soviet leaders.

The doctors, in a resolution adopted at a dinner-meeting of the physicians division of the United Jewish Appeal of Greater New York, saw in the charges a threat against all Jewish doctors in the Soviet Union and against Jews everywhere. It was announced at the dinner that the physicians division already had pledges of contributions of $185,000 to the New York UJA for 1953.
