  1. Poumista,

    Thank you for the link to Ron Radosh’s article. I note Radosh references his own memoirs Commies. That book is an amusing read. One anecdote worth recalling is one he mentions on p.48. He discusses leaving a demonstration for the benefit of the Rosenbergs the night they were executed in June 1953. He comments that mounted police broke up the demonstration and this act reminded the demonstrators, many of whom were Jewish, of the way the Cossacks would attack the Jewish poor of the shtetl!
