Stalin’s Bureaucracy in Action: The Creation and Destruction of the Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee - Shimon Redlich, War, Holocaust and Stalinism: A Documented Study of the Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee in the USSR

This very favorable review praises Redlich’s painstaking persistence in culling Russian archives to produce an enlightening volume on the workings of Stalin’s bureaucracy and of the Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee in the USSR. Redlich’s thoughtful analysis of the activities and relations of the Committee’s leadership with the various constituencies and with the highest echelons of the Communist Party is reinforced by 181 copiously annotated archival documents. His insights into the Committee’s major figures and into the way the USSR was run under Stalin are exceedingly valuable, and the picture they reveal is brutally clear.
