Jews in the Soviet Union: 1941 to present

Anti-Semitism since 1985: Old Ideas Resurface


"German National Socialism"...



"Alphabet for the Russian Nationalist"...


FOR THE FIRST TIME in Russian history, there is freedom of expression: no more censorship by the state, and open discussions in the media. A great number of new newspapers and magazines reflecting divergent political opinions are appearing in the streets. But this freedom of expression also has a shadow side: anti-Semitic and racist publications appear, often published by extreme nationalistic organizations.

After a few years of economic reforms, part of the population has a substantially better standard of living. Many, however, are worse off and face the future with anxiety. This situation traditionally forms an ideal breeding ground for organizations that offer simple solutions for difficult problems: blaming one specific group for everything that has gone wrong.
