The Jewish community in Petrograd would have been the prey of pogromists and Jewish property would have been distributed among the soldiery if the plans of General Judenitsch, head of one of the White armies, had not been frustrated.

This was revealed today when interesting documents from the archives of the Reval kehillah were made public.

The documents revealed that in 1919 General Judenitsch when marching upon Petrograd, issued an order promising the soldiers the property of Petrograd Jews and “freedom of action,” after the city would be taken.
