It has allowed books such as this one to appear. This is a first-hand account by a survivor of 'Stalin's last crime', the so-called 'Doctors' Plot of 1953', written soon after the event but unpublished until now. On January 13, 1953, the official press agency Tass announced the arrest of a group of 'killer doctors' who were, allegedly, systematically doing away with prominent public figures in the Soviet Union. Nine doctors, six of them Jews, were cited, and in the next few weeks many more were carted off to the dread prisons of Lubyanka and Lefortovo. Among them was Yakov Lvovich Rapoport, a distinguished pathologist; this book is a firsthand memoir of his imprisonment, revealing not only the suffering caused by a fabricated 'plot' but also the devastating climate of antisemitism and the appalling disarray of medicine and science in the Stalinist era. Rapoport outlines the background of the infamous incident: arrests of prominent physicians had begun in 1952 and created hysteria throughout the country. Clinics were empty, patients refused professional medical advice, rumours abounded of poisoned medicines in pharmacies and murdered infants in maternity wards. Public opinion was primed to accept the Doctors' Plot, and to this day no one knows how many hundreds or thousands of doctors, prominent and ordinary, were victimized. Rapoport himself was arrested in early February, and he recalls in meticulous detail the psychological and physical pain he endured, all the while steadfastly denying that there was any conspiracy. He was saved from certain execution only by the death of Stalin. The Doctors' Plot is the gripping story of a brave man that gives a dismal picture of what life - especially for intellectuals and for Jews -was like in the Soviet Union under the paranoid Stalin. There is much information on the distortion of biology by Lysenko, the demigogic elevation of such charlatans as Olga Lepeshinskaya, the campaign'against Virchowism, the fictitious murder of Gorky and the quite likely murder of Frunze, and other mind-boggling examples of the surrealistic politics of Soviet science.

[EAN: 9781872180137], [PU: London : Fourth Estate], Jacket, Fine cloth copy in an equally fine dust wrapper. Particularly and surprisingly well-preserved; tight, bright, clean and especially sharp-cornered. Provenance; From the library of the British Medical Association with its bookplate. Physical description; viii, 280 p. Notes; Index. Summary; Long buried in Soviet mass consciousness, the ill-famed "doctors' plot" was recalled by President Gorbachev in his now famous speech of 1987 in which he called for certain "dark spots" in Soviet history to be fully and finally elucidated. This speech led directly to the opening up of the KGB archives and to the publication in Russia in 1988 of this book. Nine doctors refused to ascribe death by natural causes to Stalin's wife who had in fact committed suicide. Stalin's revenge was to set abroad fake reports of attempts by a so-called terrorist group of doctors to shorten the lives of active statesmen in the Soviet Union by means of sabotage in the course of medical treatment. In the following months thousands of doctors were arrested and labelled "killer doctors". The hysteria was also used to escalate anti-semitic feelings. Yakov Rapoport, the only survivor of the original nine doctors, tells his story. Subjects; Soviet Union (1922-1991). Medical profession. Antisemitism. Political prisoners. Personal narratives. European history: from (c 1900 -). Former Soviet Union, USSR (Europe). Biography & Autobiography / General. History / Europe / Former Soviet Republics. History / Modern / 20th Century.
