Central Committee of Communist Youth Group Issues Instructions for Investigations (Jewish Telegraphic Agency)
Instructions to its branches throughout the Union of Socialist Soviet Republics to wage untiring warfare against anti-Semitism in its own ranks were issued by the Central Committee of the Comsomol, Communist youth organization.
The circular urges the branches to investigate every individual case of anti-Semitic mistreatment, to “unmask the open and secret anti-Semites,” not even stopping at expulsion from the organization of “all anti-Semites.”
Simultaneously, instructions urged members of the youth organization to carry on a fight against the “religious and Zionist manifestations among the young Jewish workers.”
