Stalin's War Against the Jews: The Doctors' Plot and the Soviet Solution

Front Cover
Free Press, 1990 - History - 318 pages
In 1952 nine Kremlin doctors, all Jews, were seized and accused of plotting to poison the Soviet leaders. Rapoport's account of the final 14 months of Stalin's life reveals that the so-called "Doctors' Plot" was a culminating step in the dictator's lifelong war against the Jews, and argues that only Stalin's sudden death in 1953 prevented the unfolding of his own solution to the "Jewish problem" in the Soviet Union.
