The Jews in the Soviet Satellites

By Peter Meyer and Others
Syracuse University Press, 1953
637 pp. $6.50

Designed as a companion to Solomon M. Schwarz' "The Jews in the Soviet Union" (noted here January 1952), this authoritative study sponsored by the American Jewish Committee comprises lengthy studies by four specialists on the situation of the Jews on the eve of, during, and since the Second World War, in Czechoslovakia, Poland, Hungary, Rumania and Bulgaria. The disintegration of the Jewish community life under Communist auspices is a central feature of the work, but it is only the conclusion of an exceedingly painful and disheartening story.
