Blatantly Anti-semitic Book to Be Published in the USSR

Download PDF for this date

The author of an inflammatory anti-Semitic book in the Soviet Union will shortly be publishing another work of a similar nature, according to a Soviet source quoted here by the Institute of Jewish Affairs.

The forthcoming book, entitled, “Invasion Without Arms, “is by Vladimir-Yakovlevich Begun, a journalist from Minsk. The title is the same as one of the chapters of his earlier book,” Creeping Counter-Revolution,” published two years ago. Dr. Lusasz Hirszowicz, of the Institute of Jewish Affairs, said that Begun’s first book was blatantly anti-Jewish and designed to rekindle or strengthen religious and racial prejudice.

Begun’s new book, of which 100,000 copies are to be printed, is to be issued by the Molodaya Gvardiya Publishing House of Moscow, which publishes material known for its nationalistic tendencies. A Soviet preview of the book has said that it will “unmask modern methods of Zionist propaganda, the ideological adventurism of international Zionism, and its provocationist activity.”
