Surveys the impact on the Jewish population of the antisemitic propaganda during the Slansky trial and the Doctors' Plot, which continued in the early post-Stalinist years. Examines reactions in Israel and amongst world Jewry, in the 1960s, to the persecution of Jewish activists and Hebrew teachers, and the repression of Jewish emigration. Mentions the propagandistic use of Soviet Jews who denied that Jews were discriminated against in the USSR and who supported the Soviet anti-Israel policy. Gives details on the struggle of Soviet Jewish groups to reconstruct the truth on the fate of Jewish communities during the Nazi occupation and the heroism of Jewish partisans, as well as to erect monuments to mark the mass graves of Jewish victims."@en ;
