Stalin’s Last Purge

3 Stalin’s Last Purge
The documentary diaries

Alan Rosenthal

Manchester University Press

This chapter tells the story of Solomon Mikhoels, Russian theatre director, who aids Stalin in the war, and is then murdered by the KGB. The film using superb archive material is mostly seen through the eyes of his daughters. After showing the battles of the USSR against Hitler’s Germany in World War II, it details Stalin’s post war anti Semitism, his destruction of the Moscow’s Yiddish theatre, his secret purges of Jewish intellectuals and artists, and the devilish Doctors Plot concocted by Stalin.

Keywords:   Stalin, Purge, Mikhoels, Second World War, Yiddish theatre, Secret trials
