Stalin killed a great number of Bolsheviks of Jewish ancestry in THE GREAT TERROR OF 1936 (see Robert Conquest's Book), which is  not about Ukraine. Some Jews initially supported Bolshevism because it deposed the genocidal czar Nicholas II.



Yes, quite believably in the millions. However, it is highly improper to characterize or sympathezize with these dead Reds as Jews or victims of anti-Semitism, any more than the Mafia is Catholic. Sadly, the association between Communism and Judaism in general has been made frequently by lunatic groups, including (in a big way) the Nazis themselves.

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyns 'The Gulag Archipelago, used the research of the official Soviet Statistician who had access to secret government files,

I. A. Kurganov, estimated that between 1918 and 1959, at least 66 million died at the hands of the Communist rulers of Russia.'





Stalins victims were almost all Christians.

Stalins party was led by Jews.





"Some call it Marxism I call it Judaism."

(The American Bulletin, Rabbi S. Wise, May 5, 1935).





"The Bolshevik Revolution in Russia was the Work of Jewish Brains, Jewish Dissatisfaction and Jewish Planning, whose goal is to create a New Order in the world.

What was performed in so excellent a way in Russia, thanks to Jewish Brains and Jewish planning, shall also, through the same mental and Physical forces, Become a reality all over the world."

-American Hebrew, September 8, 1920

All my stuff is currently packed away in boxes and storage, so I cannot check my facts. However, my dad bought me a book which, I think, bore the title "Jewish Encyclopedia." One of the things I read in that book was that under Stalin 2.5 million Jews "went missing." WENT MISSING?! Hmmm. I believe that if our progressive friends made that same reference about people "going missing" under autocratic, right-wing, Latin American dictatorships, they might call such people "desaparecidos." I would call them dead. If Stain murdered 2.5 million Jews, even if they were fewer than Hitler murdered, why doesn't history portray Stalin as the first to engage in Jewish genocide? Is it because we could not have defeated Hitler without him?

I have an MA in History from Vanderbilt with concentrations in Russia and recent Europe and would enjoy answering questions in those areas. Just don`t expect a lot of bibliographical information.
