Jewish Labor Committee Publishes Charges Against Khrushchev

Soviet Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev, as political boss of the Ukraine after World War II, “tolerated open anti-Semitism and anti-Jewish riots in Kiev” against returning Jewish survivors, it is charged in a review published today by the Jewish Labor Committee.

The review, entitled “The Fate of Soviet Jewry,” asserts that it was only after the late Joseph Stalin “realized that such riots could be turned against the Government that he sent Kaganovitch to restore order in the Ukraine.” The review declares that the Soviet Government “continued its policy of removing all Jews from Government agencies.”
