How Zionism Censors the Red Army Out of Jewish Holocaust History


Zionist Jewish organisations have a policy of writing the Soviet Red Army out of Jewish holocaust history because they oppose Socialism and prefer racism and fascism. Although hundreds of thousands of Soviet soldiers died ‘liberating’ the Nazi German Death Camps holding the Jews (and other victims), and cared for the survivors they found, people like Steven Spielberg (in ‘Schindler’s List’) remove virtually all positive reference to the Red Army, but instead perpetuate the US Cold War myth of Soviet ‘anti-Semitism’.


The capitalist West knew about the Nazi Death Camps but said nothing and did nothing. The Red Army knew nothing and did everything. The Red Army knew first-hand of Nazi brutality – but when the Death Camps were found – a whole new chapter in human depravity was revealed. When British BBC correspondent Alexander Werth reported that he had been in the Red Army frontline when it discovered the Majdanek Concentration Camp (situated in Poland), Winston Churchill forbade the BBC from transmitting the details – referring to it as ‘Soviet propaganda’, designed to make people feel ‘sorry’ for Soviet suffering! Churchill, of course, had eulogized Hitler prior to WWII, and did not want to believe that the rightwing thug that he had backed could have carried-out these racist crimes.


I have heard that the British ‘Special Air Service’ (SAS) encountered Nazi German Death Camps in their forward operating positions (far inside enemy territory in Western Europe). However, during the ongoing fighting, local cease-fires had been arranged between belligerents which saw the Nazi Germans dismantle the camps and attempted to ‘hide’ or ‘eradicate’ the thousands of dead bodies. The shocked SAS Troopers were told to ‘pull-back’ and not harass the Nazi Germans whilst the ‘concealing process’ unfolded. Jewish people lived happily in the USSR and many fought with distinction during WWII. It was only the Zionist representatives of the Modern State of Israel (from 1948) which caused trouble in the Soviet Union, by trying to encourage a Jewish uprising against Communism. This negative attitude toward Communism has its basis in US foreign policy – which Israel represents in the Middle East. Only the Soviet Red Army gave its blood to free the Jews when nobody else in the world would do so.


Just after posting the above, I received a moronic far-rightwing comment containing ‘holocaust denial’, ‘anti-Semitism’, and US Cold War ‘anti-Soviet’ propaganda all wrapped-up in two short paragraphs of fascist ignorance:

‘Bolshevism was largely a Jewish affair. The Jews cannot successfully falsify history for ever.

The so-called holocaust is fake history. The forensic examinations of the alleged death camps do not support the official yarn, but rather contradict it.’

This is the kind of fascist ignorance that is now running riot in the USA following the election of the racist (and intellectually challenged) Donald Trump. Zionism is not Jewish – it is White racism employed by non-religious people of Jewish origin. Zionists, as fascists, utilise ‘lying’ as advocated by Adolf Hitler – and so Zionists (like all fascists) routinely lie about everything. Marx rejected all religion and was not ‘Jewish’ in the practising sense – Bolshevism was not Jewish in origin (as Lenin was not Jewish) – but there were many fine (secular) Marxist-Leninists of Jewish ancestry. Hitlerites committed untold crimes against humanity and were military crushed as a consequence. The fascist idiot who wrote the above is a White practitioner of that other fascist pursuit – Japanese Zen Buddhism – or that distorted and hate filled ideology that killed millions in Asia during WWII. Do not listen to the Zionists or the White fascists – their pseudo-science will have you believing in geocentricism, hollow earth and flat earth conspiracies, as wellii as scapegoating minorities, and making Nazi Germany appear to be the true ‘victim’ of WWII. Down with all fascism and holocaust denial!

Soviet War Memorial – Remembrance Sunday (13.11.2017)


Soviet War Memorial – Imperial War Museum – London

Around a hundred people gathered on a cold November day in the ground of the Imperial War Museum (London), to pay their respects to 27-40 million Soviet dead and wounded suffered during what the West calls ‘WWII’, and the Russians the ‘Great Patriotic War’ (1941-1945). This was a brutal war of extermination and survival, with Adolf Hitler’s Nazi German forces invading the USSR and immediately initiating ‘Operation Ost’ – the intended extermination of the Slavic ethnicity. Hitler intended to use the geographical space gained from a defeated Soviet Union as a means to create a ‘Greater Germany’. In the meantime, the Soviet Red Army, whilst suffering terrible casualties and set-backs in the face of the enemy, slowly but surely began to consolidate its presence, and push the Nazi German forces back toward their homeland. The Soviet defeat of fascism essentially gave the Western powers a fighting chance in France and beyond. Hurrah to the Soviet people! Every year the number of British Veterans who fought with the Soviet Red Army reduces – with none now being under 80 years of age. As the Old Guard falls away, their place in the line is often taken by their younger relatives. As British Veterans of the Soviet Red Army are not acknowledged by the rightwing British Legion – and are not welcome at London’s Cenotaph – these brave Veterans quite rightly congregate here.



















USSR: Serial Killer Andrei Chikatilo (1936-1994) and the Nazi German Connection


Andrei Chikatilo (Андрей Романович Чикатило)

Following the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the Western powers (under the leadership of the USA), demanded the abolition of the entire Soviet Legal Code, and the immediate instigation of capitalistic laws within ‘modern’ Russia. The Soviet Death Penalty was annulled in principle in 1993, but was not confirmed in fact until 2009. This is why the Ukrainian mass killer known as ‘Andrei Chikatilo’ was put to death with a single pistol shot to the back of head on February 14th, 1994. Andrei Chikatilo was a serial killer and paedophile who between 1978 and 1990 had committed 53 confirmed murders, but had actually confessed to 56 murders. The Soviet Authorities stated that over-all, there was evidence of at least 65 victims – but only 53 could be directly or forensically linked to Andrei Chikatilo. The confirmed tally consisted of 21 boys aged 7 to 16 years, 14 girls aged 9 to 17 years, and 18 adult women. The Western accounts of the details surrounding this case are driven by US Cold War hysteria, as can be seen by the rather inaccurate and often fictitious English language wikipedia page – which diverts dramatically from the Russian language wikipedia page, and virtually all other Russian language accounts. This article will highlight these fabrications and convey the true facts about Andrei Chikatilo.

The US documentary included below, makes a number of false statements about Andrei Chikatilo – one of which is that he was a ‘Member’ of the Communist Party – this is untrue. He was never associated with the Communist Party, but such skewed documentaries serve to associate the Soviet Union with false allegations of ‘backwardness’ and ‘corruption’, and also try to make the tenuous case that as in the capitalist West – where mass murderers are common-place – similar crimes were committed in the Soviet Union. Again, this is an unfounded allegation with no historical evidence supporting it. In fact, the case of Andrei Chikatilo proves that within the Soviet Union, deliberate serial killers were unknown outside of murders committed by people suffering with psychiatric issues (to whom the sentence was always ‘medical care’ and ‘confinement’ and never the Death Penalty). Karl Marx wrote that the material conditions of outer society conditions the inner reflection of that society within the mind. Conversely, the mind, once conditioned, also influences the environment via physical action (i.e. ‘labour’). The exploitative and highly oppressive socio-economic conditions associated with the capitalist system, exerts tremendous pressure and violence upon the minds and bodies of the workers, and it is understandable that on occasion, perverse and/or murderous behaviour can be the result. Generally speaking, there is a scale of working class violent behaviour that for most people stops short of actual murder, but for a few some manifests in the taking of life. Indeed, the American FBI once issued a statement confirming that at any one time in the US, there are probably at least 70 serial killers at large.

As the Soviet Union was a Workers’ State of non-inverted and progressive social and economic policies, how was someone like Andrei Chikatilo created? The US Cold War rhetoric suggests that the ideas of Karl Marx are wrong, and that the single case of Andrei Chikatilo proves this assumption. The English language wikipedia page falsely asserts that Andrei Chikatilo was born in the Ukraine during a mass famine caused by the ‘collectivisation’ policies initiated by Joseph Stalin – but this is false. The rich peasant class (the ‘kulaks’), of which Andrei Chikatilo’s family was a part of, were given financial aid and material aid by the Soviet State for decades prior to the re-form of farming. The kulaks were very rich and far from starvation, but it is true that a certain minority of kulaks (who did not mind accepting State help), also resented the idea that they must ‘earn’ this help by ‘sharing’ their produce. In protest, these kulaks killed their animals, smashed their tractors and sabotaged their crops. Those kulaks responsible were deported to Siberia – but the fact that Andrei Chikatilo’s family still lived in the Ukraine in 1936 proves that his family was loyal to the Soviet Union at that time. This is why the Russian language accounts dismiss the idea that Andrei Chikatilo and his family suffered any hardship in the Ukraine during the 1930’s, and that this idea cannot be used to justify his later criminal behaviour. Furthermore, Andrei Chikatilo’s father was conscripted into the Red Army in 1941, and is recorded in Russian language sources as ‘commanding’ a partisan detachment – a situation involving ‘trust’ on behalf of the Soviet Authorities. As his father was away during the Nazi German invasion of the Ukraine, it is thought that his mother was raped by German soldiers – eventually giving birth to his sister.

Russian language sources record that Andrei Chikatilo, as a young child, suffered terribly during the Nazi German occupation of the Ukraine (during the Great Patriotic War). Not only was there permanent starvation, but Andrei Chikatilo has to witness the continuous mass round-ups of Ukrainians by the Nazi Germans, and the torture and mass executions that followed. It is said that at one time Andrei Chikatilo was with a group of Ukrainian children machine-gunned by the Nazi Germans – after which he fell into a pit with other bodies. Although unhurt, the Nazi Germans thought he was dead because he was covered in the blood of others. Andrei Chikatilo had to lie still to preserve his own life whilst blood ran into his mouth and down his throat. After having witnessed his mother (and thousands of other Ukrainian women) raped, and experiencing the insane racialised violence of the Nazi German occupiers of the USSR, it is hardly surprising that a child of his young age could have had the inner processes of his mind ‘damaged’ in the manner they undoubtedly were.  Of equal importance is the fact that some Ukrainians actively collaborated with the Nazi German occupiers – assisting in the rape and murder of Soviet-supporting Ukrainians. This collaboration with fascism would lead to the neo-Nazi insurgency that officially existed in Western Ukraine between 1945 and 1947. After ‘liberating’ the Ukraine in 1945, the Red Army moved on to Berlin, and the Ukrainian neo-Nazi insurgency was taken on and destroyed by the special troops of the NKVD. In the meantime, the neo-Nazi terrorism in the Ukraine prevented effective food distribution throughout the area, which directly led to a famine in 1946. (It is believed that the ‘Madan’ neo-Nazi Movement that seized control of Western Ukraine in 2014, is staffed by direct descendents of these Ukrainian criminals of WWII). Perhaps this military action that eventually destroyed neo-Nazism in the Ukraine inspired Andrei Chikatilo to eventually join the Border Troops of the KGB (formerly ‘NKVD’) of the USSR (in Central Asia), and then as a signalman in Berlin (within the Soviet Forces stationed in Germany) – serving from 1957-1960.

A point that must be addressed is the issue of Andrei Chikatilo’s mother – who claimed that during a supposed famine between 1932-1933 – local Ukrainians killed and ate her son apparently called ‘Stephen’. However, despite extensive academic research in Russia and the West (for purposes of criminology), no records can be found of a birth, life, or death of any child called ‘Stephen’, as confirmed by American forensic psychologist Catherine Ramsland. This demonstrates the fallacious nature of much US-inspired cold War lying. On this point, the Russian journalists and writers MA Gurevich OM Libkin stated:

‘The investigators, and then the journalists, after hearing the story of the supposedly eaten brother, followed all the avenues of investigation, but nothing was found. Neither in the surviving papers, nor in the memory of fellow villagers – with nobody remembering Stephen himself. To establish whether he existed at all, or whether it was true that he disappeared under suspicious circumstances, is now most likely impossible. It is quite possible to assume that Andrei Chikatilo is cunning only in part. His parents, who worked hard day after day, leaving their small children at home unattended, could threaten to punish them if they left the hut or the yard, incase someone else would catch and eat them. For the sake of persuasiveness, Andrei Chikatilo’s parents probably ‘invented’ the character of Stephen. From the point of view of pedagogy, the method is bad. But effective …’

It was probably Andrei Chikatilo’s direct exposure to the atrocities of German Nazism that led eventually to his criminal behaviour. This exposure at such a young age was stronger in effect, than the positive and self-empowering structures of Soviet Society. It was not Soviet Society, Joseph Stalin or imagined ‘famines’ that led to the criminal behaviour of Andrei Chikatilo, but the appalling and murderous behaviour of Adolf Hitler and his racially motivated soldiers in the Ukraine. Of course, it must be acknowledged that many millions of Soviet citizens suffered under Nazi German occupation, but no one else in the entire country, despite what must have been terrible experiences of the worst kind, responded in the manner associated with Andrei Chikatilo. It is also true that whereas the capitalist West continuously produce mass killers of various kinds, only one manifested in the USSR during its existence, and this one example can be decisively traced back to the innate corruption of the Nazi German regime, and its brutal occupation of the USSR.

Sergei Aleshkov (Aleshkin) Сережа Алешков (Алешкин) – Six Year Old Soviet Soldier at Stalingrad


Many millions of children suffered during the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945), with many millions more being orphaned due to the military actions and atrocities carried-out by the brutal invading troops of Nazi Germany. Many of these children died alone in terrible conditions, whilst others were tortured and maimed by the Hitlerites who were trying to eradicate the Slavic peoples. On the other hand, the tales of bravery and resistance to the Nazi German atrocities is not very well-known in modern Russia today, where the shallow ‘cult of celebrity’ has replaced the veneration of true bravery. This is the story of the youngest Soviet Red Army soldier of the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945). Prior to the Nazi German invasion of the Soviet Union, Sergei Aleshkov lived peacefully with his family in the village of Gryn. Sergei Aleshkov was only 6 years old in 1942, when the invading Nazi Germans executed his mother and elder brother for supporting the Partisans. This is how Sergei Aleshkov became orphaned. They lived in the Kaluga region of western Russia. The boy was saved by the quick-thinking of a neighbour – this selfless woman threw the him out of a hut window – and shouted for him to run … Sergei managed to hide in the woods. Today, it is difficult to say for how much time the wounded and hungry child wandered through the autumn forest, but he eventually met-up with the Partisans. The next summer, as the Partisans manoeuvred around (and through) the Nazi German lines, Sergei Aleshkov fell and injured his leg. but he was lucky – as he was accidentally found by Scouts of the Red Army 142th Infantry Regiment, (commanded by Major Vorobyov). He was starving, covered in mud, and dressed in tattered clothing. The Red Army soldiers took care of his wounds, washed and fed him, and made a specially small Red Army uniform for him.


from that point on, he was protected from direct contact with the brutal and ruthless  Nazi German soldiers, but he worked tirelessly in support of the Red Army troops as they fought ongoing battles. Between battles, Sergei Aleshkov raised morale by singing poems and songs, and during battles he carried ammunition to the front-line troops (keeping them supplied), as well as passed-on messages and delivered mail. The soldiers of the Red Army treated Sergei Aleshkov as if he were their own son. However, the commanding officer of the Regiment – Major Vorobyov – eventually adopted Sergei Aleshkov, and even accredited Sergei with helping him meet his beloved wife – Nina – a nurse. This was after a bomb had hit the dug-out Major Vorobyov was operating from during the Battle for Stalingrad, blocking the entrance and sealing him in. As there was little air, Sergei Aleshkov tried to pull the debris away from the entrance himself, but was not strong enough. Instead, despite the Nazi Germans heavily bombing the area, Sergei Aleshkov ran through the falling bombs and into the surrounding trenches (that were receiving enemy fire), where he told other Red Army soldiers what had happened to Major Vorobyov. In the process, Sergei Aleshkov was shot down (along with many other Red Army soldiers), and was wounded in the legs yet again. After this, a rescue party was immediately sent to rescue Major Vorobyov. After the battle, he was well looked after and cared for by all concerned – as news of his bravery spread throughout the Red Army. For his bravery, Serezha Aleshkov was awarded the Medal for Military Bravery.


On another occasion (whilst stationed on the Dnieper), Sergei Aleshkov spotted two men hiding in straw near-by. After reporting this sighting, it was revealed that these were Nazi German Scouts who were spotting for the fascist artillery and bringing fire down upon the civilian areas. After his military service, and on the orders of the High Command, he was enlisted in the Suvorov School situated in the city of Tula. Although as a youth and young man, he suffered disabilities from his leg injuries, Sergei Aleshkov trained in law, and became a very effective lawyer – always representing the rights and interests of the ordinary people. He eventually worked as a prosecutor and remained a man of honour, constantly fighting for justice. The science of war forever teaches us to value honour, conscience and brotherhood

Capitalist Russia and the October Massacre (1993)


The Soviet Union was destroyed by Mikhail Gorbachev during the middle to late 1980’s. He was in many ways the culmination of the corrosive Trotskyite tendency within the USSR established by Nikita Khrushchev in the 1950’s, from which Communist Russia never recovered. Trotskyism is opposed to Marxist-Leninism, and whilst mimicking various aspects of the rhetoric of Scientific Socialism, its central core ideology evolves around co-operating with the capitalist system, and various aspects of its fascistic thinking. As a consequence, Trotsky dedicated his life to formulating an ideology that could destroy the USSR. The USSR finally collapsed due to mishandling within, and Western pressure from out, between 1989 – 1991. This betrayal of the Soviet people and the Communist Bloc in Eastern Europe would eventually lead to the death of millions due to the sudden withdrawal of Welfare Systems and ‘free’ Medical Systems. In Russia alone, the population unnaturally dropped by 5.9 million people between 1991-1999 – due to starvation and medical neglect. None of this barbarity is reported in the Western press, as it is thought to be a price worth paying, as a means to get rid of one of the world’s major challenges to capitalist tyranny.


In 1993, certain Russian politicians tried to stop the counter-revolution and prevent the complete collapse of the Soviet System – much of which was still functioning despite the ‘official’ dissolving of the USSR at the end of 1991. The US President Bill Clinton, and the British Prime Minister John Major (together with many other European leaders), called for the rapid ‘opening-up’ of all Russian markets, and the end of all Socialist entities, enterprises and provisions. This ‘de-Socialisation’ was to happen over-night, with no interim methods to ease the transition from ‘free’ assistance to ‘private’ services. The Western stooge – Boris Yeltsin – (a drunk who had become the leader of capitalist Russia), was ordered by the West to put a stop to this attempt, and forcibly ‘breakup’ the crowds of tens of thousands of people carrying Red Flags that had spontaneously surrounded the Russian parliament building – demanding the immediate re-establishment of the Soviet System.


The result was a massacre of ordinary Russian citizens who were peacefully exercising their democratic right to protest. This massacre was carried-out by the Russian military which just two years earlier had been a part of the Soviet Red Army. How could these units (whose fore-fathers brought Lenin to power and destroyed Nazi German fascism), turn their guns on the Russian people whilst following orders given by corrupt capitalists? More to the point, why did the Red Army not put up a fight in 1989 to defeat the coup that brought Boris Yeltsin to power? I hear that certain elements of the Red Army did try to resist the Counter-Revolution – but were over-ruled by high-ranking military officers who were already in the pockets of the corrupt politicians. The Red Army in 1989 was following orders – even though those order came from corrupt origins, but in 1993, things were very different. The new regiments of the capitalist Russian forces had the choice to make a stand against capitalist tyranny – but by and large they refused to do so. This is an astonishing decision when it is considered that many of these men had been brought-up in the Soviet System, and had been soldiers in the Socialist Red Army. By siding with Boris Yeltsin’s despicable anti-Socialist regime – these men of the Russian capitalist forces betrayed the 1917 Russian Revolution, betrayed the Russian people, and through their murderous actions of the 3rd and 4th of October, 1993, ultimately betrayed the entirety of humanity and the International Working Class.


If this massacre (that killed and wounded thousands of men, women and children) had happened under the Soviet Regime, the US and European capitalist countries would have made a ‘mythic’ example of these circumstances, and used the outcome in films, books, pamphlets and education courses – to teach about the supposed ‘undemocratic’ and ‘tyrannical’ nature of the Soviet System – but as the ‘massacre’ was in the service of furthering capitalist interests in Russia (by disempowering the Russian people), it is all but ‘ignored’ in the Western media, and not taught in any college or university. Even after President Putin came to power, and re-invigorated the Russian Army to remember and celebrate its ‘Communist’ past, the massacre of October, 1993, is still treated as if it never happened, such is the shame it induces in the collective Russian psyche. innocent Russian men, women and children fighting to defend the achievements of the 1917 Russian Revolution were mowed down by tanks and machine guns that were also previously used to defend exactly the same ‘Revolution’. All this murdering and maiming was in the service of a Western capitalist system that today seeks to invade Russia and depict its people as racially inferior. This is the same Western capitalist system that since President Barack Obama – has openly supported neo-Nazi (and anti-Russian) regimes in the Ukraine and throughout Eastern Europe, with NATO Forces acting aggressively all around the geographical borders of modern Russia.


As matters transpired, tens of thousands of ordinary Russians formed voluntary ‘Red Army’ units (a ‘new’ Immortal Regiment) that deployed around the Russian Parliament building in Moscow, in an attempt to protect the pro-Soviet politicians inside who were trying to prevent the collapse of the USSR. Many Russian citizens carried Red Flags, built barricades in the streets, and armed themselves with all kinds of weaponry (although many fought with their bare-hands). They were confronted initially by para-military police, and then by the Russian armed forces that bombarded the Parliament building and opened fire on the protesting crowds. There are rumours that certain Russian military units intended to support the people, but their officers were arrested and the men dis-armed and imprisoned before they could mobilise. Russian people today take to the streets to commemorate this terrible event – but it is an event that still receives no official recognition – even though the modern Russian military forces now eulogize past military victories against Nazi Germany. What the modern Russian forces did during October, 1993 (in the service of capitalism) was nothing less than an act of brutal fascism and terrorism.


Finally, a word must be mentioned about the elements of the Russian armed forces that did attempt to protect the pro-Soviet politicians in the Parliament building. Their officers ordered that the old Soviet ‘Red Army’ insignia be used to replace the ‘new’ insignia of capitalist Russia on their uniforms, and that Soviet Red Flags be flown. They held-out for two days whilst the building they were in was comprehensively bombarded by Russian tanks and artillery. These ‘Red Army’ troops had no access to reinforcements, medical care or supplies, and it is still unknown how many of these brave soldiers died performing their duty trying to protect the Revolution. The political and socio-economic forces at work in Russia at that time had no respect for the will of the Russian people, and was quite prepared to ‘kill’ in the name of capitalist greed. This demonstrates the ‘seductive’ nature of capitalist greed, and how its brutal nature is all but ignored for the unjust aggrandisement and enriching of a corrupt few. As matters stand, hardly anyone in the West knows about this terrible and murderous event.

Dr Alfred Lukyanovich Yarbus (1914 -1986) – How a Soviet Red Army Soldier Progressed Perceptual Science


Translated by Adrian Chan-Wyles PhD

Translater’s Note: Alfred Yarbus was a typical product of the Soviet Education System. Fully inaccordance with the strictures of Scientific Socialism, Soviet Society was organised around the scientific principle which was considered the most effective manner through which humanity could evolve and develop technology and understanding in all fields of scientific endeavour. The onus, very much influeced by ‘Futurism’, was to develop such an advanced and progressive scientific understanding and technology, that all of society’s ills could eventually be eleviated and erdicated. On a personal level, this included the curing of all illnesses, and the development of technoogy so as to make life better for each individual. This approach also included extensive research and development in the area of disability, mobility, and life-fulfilment (the Soviet Union developed the world’s first motorised wheelchair, for instance). Despite Albert Einstein declaring Socialism to be the most logical form of socio-economic organisation, and the fact that Soviet technology was often decades ahead of the capitalist West (including in the areas of flight and space exploration), this has not stopped those mindless followers of US Cold War rhetoric declaring Soviet Science to be ‘corrupt’. The example of Alfred Yarbus (and many like him), prove this type of capitalist ignorance to be not only ‘wrong’, but also ‘pathological’ in its structure and intent. (ACW 3.10.2017)

Dr Alfred Lukyanovich Yarbus [Альфред Лукьянович ЯРБУС } (1914 -1986) was a former Red Army soldier during the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945), and saw action against the Nazi German invaders and the Japanese fascists. After the war, he became famous as a scientist and a psychologist who made a number of significnt discoveries about eye movements and human perception. Many of his most interesting results were published in a book, translated into English and published in 1967 as Eye Movements and Vision. He was born on April 3, 1914 in Moscow, and under the Soviet System of ‘free’ education, he received the best tutoring. In 1932, he finished his basic schooling. In 1933, he studied drawing and design courses. After graduation, he worked as a draftsman at the Central Institute of Aviation Motors and the Moscow Aviation Technical School. In 1935, he entered the Physics Department of Moscow University. He graduated from the University in 1941. For about a year he worked as an engineer at Plant No. 633.

From 1942 to 1946, he saw action in the ranks of the Soviet Red Army. During this period, he graduated from Leningrad Military Engineering School and was promoted to junior lieutenant. On the Karelian Front, he commanded a pontoon-bridge platoon. In 1944, his Unit was transferred to the area of ​​Vladivostok. There, during the war with Japan, he worked at the headquarters at the front, as an engineer topographer. In 1946, he was demobilised as the Soviet military was scaled-down. From 1946 to 1947, he worked as a junior researcher at the Institute of Crystallography – which was a part of the USSR Academy of Sciences. In 1947, he enrolled in graduate school, from which he graduated in 1950, receiving the degree of Candidate of Science. From 1950 to 1963, he worked in the Laboratory of Physiological Optics at the Institute of Biophysics of the USSR Academy of Sciences. First in the post of junior researcher, and then as a senior fellow. In 1963, (together with the laboratory) he was transferred to the Institute for Information Transmission Problems of the USSR Academy of Sciences. In 1964 he received a Doctorate in Biological Sciences.

AL Yarbus – was one of the greatest specialists in our country, specialising in the field of the ‘psychophysics’ of vision. His work was related to the development of the original technology that involved the recording of eye movements as electrical impulses (recorded through special ‘sucker’ devices affixed to the skin). The same technique was used to record an image that was immobile relative to the retina. This allowed him to make a number of discoveries concerning the ’empty field’ (or perceptual ‘blind spot’) and its properties. The results obtained in studying the patterns of eye movement, as well as studying the properties of the ’empty field’, were essential for understanding the mechanisms of the organ of vision.

The work of Alfred Yarbus regarding the precise recording of eye movements, and perceptual experiments involving a still image relative to the retina, gained wide popularity within the Soviet Union and abroad. The sound scientifc findings obtained are summarized in the monograph ‘The Role of Eye Movements in the Process of Vision’ (Nauka, 1965), which has already been re-published four times abroad (under the title ‘Eye movements and vision’).

Since 1975, Alfred Yarbus was occupied with the scientific analysis of the perceptual construction of space and colour within the human mind (as detected through the eye). He was the first to confirm that the human retina possesses a ‘blind-spot’ in its sensory aparatus, whereby the human mind ‘fills-in’ the gap in missing data by ‘adding’ information not present in the original perception. During one of his most famous experiments, Alfred Yarbus asked numerous participants to look at the Russion oil painting ‘An Unexpected Visitor’ (painted by Ilya Repin in 1884), recording what each said they saw:

PZ 401-039-740

Participants recalled completely different aspects of this picture – including details that were not present. No one ‘perceived’ the entire picture correctly or within its proper context. Instead, the mind carefully selected ‘small’ areas relevant to the observer at the point in time the painting was looked at. This meant that each participant ‘perceived’ only that which their minds thought was important to them at the time of observation – filtering-out all other informtion. Some ‘beliefs’ were so strong at the point of observation, that the minds concerned ‘projected’ images and colours that did not exist in the original painting. The subjects were asked to look at this picture in a number of different ways, including a) examining the painting freely, b) estimating the material circumstances of the family, c) assessing the ages of the characters, d) determining the activities of the family prior to the visitor’s arrival, e) recalling the clothes of the characters, and f) surmising how long the visitor had been away from the family. Alfred Yarbus was able to ‘track’ how the various participants used their eye-movements (in different patterns of interrogation) to seek-out and acquire different types of information. Belief affected perception, and the mind fabricated information when blind-spots were present.

Его работа была связана с разработкой оригинальной методики “присосок”, использованной для регистрации движения глаз.  Эта же методика использована для создания изображения, неподвижного относительно сетчатки. Она позволила сделать ряд открытий, касающихся “пустого поля” и его свойств. Результаты, полученные при изучении закономерностей движения глаз, а также при исследовании свойств “пустого поля”, имеют существенное значение для понимания механизмов работы органа зрения.

Работы А.Л.Ярбуса как по регистрации движений глаз, так и по опытам с изображением, неподвижным относительно сетчатки, приобрели широкую известность в пределах Советского Союза и за рубежом. Полученные материалы суммированы в монографии “Роль движений глаз в процессе зрения” (Изд.”Наука”, 1965 г.), которая уже 4 раза переиздавалась за рубежом (“Eye movements and vision”).

С 1975 г. А.Л.Ярбус занимался построением пространства цветовых ощущений, в котором существуют “цвета” (излучений и окрасок) и “антицвета”, удобно описываемые средствами векторной алгебры. Особое внимание в работе было уделено так называемым “слепым” участкам сетчатки (на периферии глаза), влияющим на ощущения, получаемые со “зрячих” участков.

Only Communists Truly Oppose Racism!


Soviet poster – Смерть немецко-фашистским разбойникам! (1944 год) – Death to the German fascist robbers! (1944)!

Fascism, racism and White supremacy have their roots in capitalism. As long as capitalism functions unquestioned – racism will continue to exist from one generation to the next. Liberals pass laws designed to curb the more obvious and extreme manifestations of racism – but do nothing about the capitalism from which the roots of racism emerge. The capitalist division of labour is the basis of racism, because it is the basis of selfish competitiveness (designed to maximise profit). Competing as individuals and competing as groups is why racism exists. Trotskyites make a fuss about confronting the outer aspects of racism – but remain silent and impotent in the face of the rampant capitalism that generates capitalism. To be a ‘true’ anti-fascist and anti-racist is to be simultaneously an anti-capitalist. Your flag will be ‘Red’ and your country will be the ‘future’. All other anti-racist protests are just more bourgeois noise of little, or no consequence.

The Rightwing Polish


The Nazi Germans used ‘Sonder Kommando’ Units in their death camps. Usually, these ‘Units’ were comprised of collaborating Polish Jews and they assisted in every part of the extermination process – from arrival to the dead bodies being burnt. Churchill had encouraged a rightwing Polish government in exile in London – which was not concerned about the deportation from Poland of Jews, gays or the disabled – but took exception to Germans running their country! The real Polish government, however, was Socialist and living in exile in the USSR – assisting in the raising and training of Polish volunteer military units to assist the Red Army’s fight against Nazi Germany. However, when the Polish Jews rose-up in the Warsaw Ghetto in 1943 – Churchill (and the rightwing Polish government in London) refused to support them, because it was felt that Jews were not Polish, and prone to holding leftwing viewpoints. Churchill let the Jewish uprising be destroyed by the Nazi Germans – but he did work on a new plan that involved the ethnic Poles rising-up in Warsaw (a year later), in an attempt to quickly get the rightwing Polish government in London back into power in Poland BEFORE the Soviet Red Army arrived on the scene! Churchill viewed this gambit as a means to prevent a Socialist government in Poland. This plan failed when the Nazi Germans quickly put-down this new threat before the Soviets could fight their way into the city. As matters transpired, it was the Soviet Red Army that eventually fought its way into Warsaw – freed the Jews, freed the Polish people in general, and installed a Socialist Polish government. However, racism has always been a problem in Poland – particularly anti-Semitism, but also anti-Slavic (i.e. ‘anti-Russian’) prejudice. This situation led to a permanent rightwing resistance to ‘Socialism’ that exists in Poland to this day (alongside the usual racist attitudes). Today, the modern Polish State plays-down the Jewish Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of 1943, but eulogises the Warsaw Uprising of 1944 – whilst simultaneously demonising their eventual liberators – the Soviet Red Army!

Richard Sorge (Рихард Зорге) [1895-1944] Hero of the Soviet Union


On the morning of the 18th October, 1941, Japanese counter-intelligence initiated a number of arrests in Tokyo that smashed a Soviet sky-ring. The Soviet Red Army had humiliated the Japanese Imperial Army a number of times in 1938 and 1939 in battles that occurred in and around the Mongolia-Manchuria border areas. Following the Japanese surrender to the Soviets, the Government of Japan was reluctant to get directly involved in another war with the USSR. However, following the Nazi German invasion of the USSR during June, 1941, the Soviet High Command were not sure whether Japan would attack the USSR from the East. This knowledge was important, particularly as Nazi German forces were sweeping through the USSR from the West, and even reaching the outskirts of Moscow by early October, 1941.


The Soviet High Command was evacuating Moscow when the Soviet Leader – Joseph Stalin – took the decision to personally stay and over-see the defence of Russia’s capital city. Enter Soviet spy master Richard Sorge (Рихард Зорге) whose dedication to the Soviet Union, and selfless service to the cause of Communism, quite literally ‘saved’ the Soviet Union from the disaster of a complete Nazi German victory, through the vital intelligence he provided. Richard Sorge successfully worked as an undercover Nazi German journalist in Hitler’s Germany (supplying an endless stream of intelligence to the USSR), before securing transfer (as an apparent Nazi German journalist) to Tokyo, Japan in 1940. He is famous for confirming (from Japanese sources) Hitler’s definite plan to invade the USSR (although not the exact date), but his most outstanding contribution is that information secured at great personal cost (as it was guaranteed to blow his cover), when he found out that Imperial Japan, despite appearing to be preparing to invade the Eastern Soviet Union, in fact had no intention whatsoever to initiate this plan. Primarily because the Japanese High Command was preparing to attack the USA (and other extensive targets throughout Asia), and needed to preserve and focus all its available military forces for these operations. Once Joseph Stalin received Richard Sorge’s report (knowing as he did the quality of this Soviet spy’s information), he was free to move the vast (and fresh) Soviet Armies stationed toward the East of the USSR, so as to converge on Moscow, and drive the Nazi German forces out off the outskirts of that city!


This early victory became the glimmer of light that would eventually turn into the full Soviet counter-offensive that saw the Nazi German Army driven out of the USSR, and the Nazi German regime thoroughly destroyed in Berlin by the Red Army! Richard Sorge, meanwhile, was tried in Japan for being a Soviet spy, and sentenced to Death by hanging. His grave still exists in Japan today, and is treated with respect. All the way through his trial, Richard Sorge maintained his cover story and continued to speak fluent German. Eventually, whilst stood on the trap-door of the gallows, and following the hood and noose being placed over his head – Richard Sorge shouted in Russian ‘Long Live the Soviet Union!’

Berlin 1945: Soviet Officer with Hitler’s Head! (С отбитой головой статуи Гитлера, Берлин, 1945 год.)


In English language sources, this picture is invariably reported as being a Red Army soldier holding a bust of the Nazi German Leader – Adolf Hitler. This is essentially correct, although this man is not a ‘soldier’ but rather an ‘officer’ in the Soviet Red Army – probably a (Junior) Lieutenant – although one Russian speaker thought he could be a ‘Major’! In fact, Russian language sources describe the object he is holding as a ‘broken’ head from a Hitler statue!
