Buber pleads for Khrushchev to stop punishing those convicted of economic crimes with the death sentence. He says that the number of Jews on the list for the death sentence is staggering and out of proportion to the number of Soviet citizens who commit crimes and especially economic offences. He fears that anti-Semitism will be the byproduct of this and hopes that the case of Jacob Frankel will not be repeated.

Buber asks BR to write to Khrushchev in similar terms to the cable he quotes.
