Stalin: The Court of the Red Tsar by Montefiore, Simon Sebag (April 13, 2004The Crucial Jewish Complicity in the Decision to Murder Tens of Thousands of Polish Officers at Katyn,jan peczkis|Sunday, January 15, 2017
Why bring up this subject? Because Jews commonly say that Poles have to "Face up to the dark chapters in their history" and to "Come to terms with the past." What is good for the goose is good for the gander.
The author, a Briton of Jewish descent, minces no words about the Zydokomuna (Judeo-Bolshevism). One of the early leaders of the Cheka was Genrikh Yagoda (Iagoda), who is thus described by Montefiore: "His great achievement, supported by Stalin, was the creation by slave labour of the vast economic empire of the Gulags." (p. 85). In no sense was the Zydokomuna marginal. Bearing in mind that Jews constituted only 1-2% of the Soviet Union's population, Montefiore points out, "In 1937, 5.7 per cent of the Party were Jews yet they formed a majority in the Government." (p. 270).
The decision-making process that precipitated the Katyn Massacre (1940) is described in considerable detail. (pp. 296-297). Both Montefiore-identified Jews in Stalin's inner circle (Lev Mekhlis and Lazar Kaganovich) supported the slaying of the Polish officers. Soviet military officials were opposed to it. Lavrenti Beria, according to his son's unverified statements, was opposed to the massacre (Montefiore thinks probably on practical grounds: The Poles may be needed later), but had to go along.
