A pamphlet presenting the official Soviet version of the situation of Jews in the USSR is being circulated here by a Communist front organization. An introduction states that the purpose of the pamphlet is “to rebut the slanderous reports against the Soviet Union by those who purport to defend Soviet Jews.” The pamphlet contains a long article by J. Schwartz titled “Jews in the Lenin Centenary.” It also repeats Soviet figures on the number of Jews in the arts and sciences and denies the existence of a Jewish problem in the Soviet Union.
