January 13, 1953 begins the plot of white coats.
That morning, the Russians discovered in the official newspaper of the Soviet Communist Party an article entitled: “Under the mask of university doctors, killer and vicious spies.”
He tells how several doctors allegedly poisoned Communist Party cadres, including Andrei Zhdanov, potential dolphin of Stalin, who died in 1948.
Among the alleged murderers are Stalin’s personal physician as well as the General and Chief Medical Officer of the Soviet Army.
The Jews, ideal culprits.
Six of the nine indicted doctors are Jewish.
The newspaper, under the orders of the regime, cries out for a global conspiracy.
After all, according to him, Zionist Jews would have become sympathizers, even spies of the United States after the creation of Israel.
Quickly, dozens and then hundreds of arrests took place. They are mostly Jews, pharmacists or doctors.
The death of Stalin puts an end to the affair.
But then on March 5, 1953, Stalin died, and with him, the plot of white coats.
A month later, the Soviet authorities, through Pravda, exonerate the doctors.
All of this had been organized by Stalin himself.
But why did the “” little father of the people “orchestrate this plot?
We don’t know exactly.
On December 1, 1952, he told the Party’s Politburo: “Every Zionist is an agent of the American intelligence service. Jewish nationalists believe their nation has been saved by the United States, where they can get rich there, bourgeois. They think they owe the Americans a debt. But among my doctors, there are many Zionists. “
Well. First of all, the aging dictator became more and more paranoid.
And then, this plot would have allowed him to replace certain personalities of power and therefore, to retain control over the State.
Finally, some historians hypothesize that Stalin was preparing for a vast Jewish purge, like the one that had been organized under Nazi Germany.
Of the first nine doctors arrested, only seven were able to return home. The other two probably died in prison or during interrogation.
This affair shook the media around the world. Several personalities, like Albert Einstein or Winston Churchill, mobilized in favor of doctors, but in vain.
