Summary
A biography of the Russian Jewish writer (1891-1967). During World War II, Ehrenburg was the USSR's most influential journalist, rallying the people to fight the Germans. After the war he served as a Soviet agent of influence with artists, intellectuals, and opinion-makers in the West. Pp. 200-220 deal with the Holocaust, Ehrenburg's involvement in compiling the "Black Book, " and the activities of the Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee. Ch. 11 (pp. 253-276), "Anti-Semitism and the Establishment of Israel, " describe how Stalin's paranoid fantasies, fed by the sympathy of Soviet Jews with Israel, resulted in an antisemitic campaign which included attacks against pro-Israel attitudes, the closure of Jewish institutions, the suppression and murder of Jewish artistic and intellectual leaders, the "Doctors' Plot, " and the plan to expel Soviet Jews to Siberia and Birobidzhan. Contends that Ehrenburg survived because he served as a decoy to mislead foreigners as to the existence of the antisemitic campaign. Describes Ehrenburg's role during Stalin's regime as essentially positive and courageous.
