Khrushchev responds to BR's letter concerning the treatment of Jews in the Soviet Union.

Khrushchev states that the idea of anti-Semitism being behind the persecution of Jews in the Soviet Union is "a crude falsehood".

Khrushchev further comments that the constitution of the U.S.S.R. "proclaims equality of all citizens", and "... declares that any advocacy of racial or national exclusiveness or hatred and contempt, are punishable by law."

Also present is a copy of the letter, TL(TC), and a three-page English translation, TL(TC).
