plot critique

The Doctors' plot (Russian: дело врачей, "doctors' case", врачи-вредители, "doctors-saboteurs" or врачи-убийцы, "doctors-killers") was an episode of antisemitism in the Soviet Union under Joseph Stalin's regime. In 1952–1953, a group of prominent Moscow doctors (predominantly Jews) were accused of conspiring to assassinate Soviet leaders. This was later accompanied by publications of anti-Semitic character in the media, which talked about the threats of Zionism and condemned people with Jewish names. Many doctors, officials and others, both Jews and non-Jews, were promptly dismissed from their jobs and arrested. A few weeks after the death of Stalin, the new Soviet leadership stated a lack of evidence and the case was dropped. Soon after, the case was declared to have been fabricated.
