Download PDF for this date

A Soviet Jewish artist, Zinovy Tolkachev, has published an album of lithographs called “Auschwitz,” depicting the horrors of that concentration camp, according to information reaching here today from Moscow. The introduction to the book, by a Soviet poet, Leonid Pervomaiski, called the prints “evidence for the prosecution.”

Another Moscow dispatch reported that a monument to Sergei Eisenstein, the noted Soviet Jewish film director, has been unveiled at Novodevichie Cemetery in the Soviet capital.
