In 1952 fifteen Soviet Jews, including five prominent poets and writers, were falsely accused, secretly tried, and convicted of treason and espionage. Thirteen were executed, one died in a prison hospital and one was exiled. This book presents the long-suppressed transcript of the trial, revealing the Kremlin’s machinery of destruction and dispelling the host of myths that have surrounded this horrifying episode.
