The United Press reports from Moscow that at a ball given by the Soviet Society for Cultural Relations between the U.S.S.R. and Foreign Countries for the Germany colony, “Russians of Jewish parentage attended and were treated the same as other Russians by the Nazis. Among them was Sergei Eisenstein, leading Soviet cinema director, whose films are still banned in Germany, and several Soviet Jewish writers whose names are still on the German banned list.”
