International Jurists See Soviet Trials Related to Jewish Problem

The International Commission of Jurists declared today it was convinced that the death sentences pronounced in recent months in the Soviet Union, many involving Russian Jews, undoubtedly related to problems of racial prejudice in that country.

The commission, which has its headquarters here, announced that conclusion in the current issue of its bulletin, which also noted that “the number of Jews sentenced to death is abnormally high and, in general, the convictions affecting Jews are exception ally hard.”
