(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Jewish colonization is among the most important phenomena in Jewish history, declared Maxim Gorki in an interview with the representative of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency. It will destroy anti-Semitic prejudices in Russia, first in the villages and later in the towns as well, he declared.

Gorki stated to the correspondent that many years ago he was a worker in the Jewish colonies in Cherson. While wandering on foot during the mineties from Odessa to Tiflis, he stopped for several months in the Jewish colony Dobroya near Novopoltavka, where he worked for one of the colonists.
