1st edition. Original printed wrappers, 8vo, 34 pages, 21 cm. In Yiddish. Title translates as, “The Verdict: On the Jewish Communists and Their Main Newspaper "The Morning Frayhayt." On August 23, 1929, an Arab mob of hundreds set out from morning prayers and killed 17 Jews injured many more. On the following day, Arabs attacked the ancient Jewish community of Hebron, killing 67 Jews. The Morgn Frayhayt, the Yiddish language daily of the American Communist Party, decreid it a massacre. Quickly, however, it became clear that the official communist view was that this was the start of a massive anti-imperialist uprising by Palestine’s Arab population and that it should be supported–and so the Morgn Frayhayt pivoted to reflect the Communist position. The New York Labor Zionists, held a show trial to ridicule the Communist flip flop; the trial is documented in this publication. SUBJECT(S): Jewish communists -- New York (State) -- New York.
