Moscow: Memorial International Society, 2020. Sewn bp. This catalogue of an exhibition at the Memorial International Society in Moscow publishes documents from libraries, archives, and private collections on the Soviet government's policies toward the Jewish population from the 1920s through the 1980s. The organizers, including the Jewish Museum and Center of Tolerance in Moscow, give the framework for a scholarly history rather a mere chronicle of anti-Semitic actions. They note periods when Jewish institutions, initiatives, and individuals flourished as well as dark periods of their suppression and persecution. Copious visual and written documents, some published for the first time, substantiate the themes. 221 p., 31 cm, approx. 200 color and b/w illus., Rus. and ENGLISH. Item #3872
