Two Jewish Communists Excluded from Soviet Delegation to England

April 8, 1924
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Maxim Litvinoff and the Jewish Communist Rothstein are not included in the official Soviet Delegation which is leaving for England for the purpose of taking part in the Anglo-Russian Conference to be held here. The exclusion of these two Bolshevik leaders is the result of objections on the part of Great Britain to the participation of Litvinoff and Rothstein, both of whom are considered by the Government to have Anglophobic sentiments.

A statement issued in Moscow declares that the reason for the elimination of Litvinoff and Rothstein is their ill-health.
