"The Doctors' Case": drama and its characters

49
One of the most controversial processes of the middle of the last century can be attributed to the famous "case of doctors." Unusual in its essence, initially fairly open, overgrown with myths and legends from the first days of its existence, the work of doctors today is a model historical conspiracy theology, which, one way or another, is interfaced with the death of Stalin. The strangeness of this case, according to a number of criteria, resembles the strangeness, no less, of the Egyptian pyramids: the more details arise about the retrospective of the case of doctors, the more mysteries this case presents. Neither historians, nor representatives of the medical corps, nor the descendants of the participants in those high-profile processes of the early fifties of the 60th century, not only do not have a single opinion on the case of doctors, but even the other way round: personal judgments and even the handling of undeniable facts lead to the appearance of diametrically opposed final views events that happened more than XNUMX years ago. The main question is: was Stalin the initiator of this high-profile process, or was his person used by people standing at that time next to the Father of Nations.


"The Doctors' Case": drama and its characters


So, most historians tend to connect the beginning of the epic with doctors with the death of Andrei Zhdanov (the closest ally of Stalin, one of the main characters in the party as a whole and the Politburo in particular) - 31 on August 1948 of the year. This death, as it turned out after the autopsy, occurred as a result of myocardial infarction. It would seem that nothing strange and conspiracy theological, because Zhdanov suffered for a long time from ailments of the cardiovascular system, if not one but ... The fact is that after a heart attack that happened in Andrei Zhdanov during a vacation in Valdai, the doctors from the health department The Kremlin (Lechsanupr), headed by Professor V.N. Vinogradov, did not diagnose myocardial infarction with Zhdanov, but recorded something streamlined in the style of heart failure against the background of other negative processes in the body. At the same time, Professor Vinogradov and other doctors noted the presence of the so-called myomalytic foci, which are an indirect confirmation of a possible heart attack. This understatement, or rather the ambiguity of the approach, gave rise to a high-profile case, as a result of which hundreds of fates were crumpled and trampled.

A few days after the survey, representatives of Lechsanupra Zhdanov passed away. In order to urgently help law enforcement agencies to find those responsible for Zhdanov’s death (and there was no talk of those responsible for such a case at that time), or rather, to divert a possible whistling over his head, a letter with the details of an incorrect diagnosis and the wrong treatment. Zhdanova sent Lydia Timashuk to the competent authorities. Timashuk, a cardiologist, said in her letter that after taking the electrocardiogram A. Zhdanov, she personally found out that he had all the signs of myocardial infarction, but the doctors did not take her considerations into account, telling her about her ignorance .

The letter reached intricate paths to Stalin himself, but in a strange way this story did not initially receive any progress. The reason that Stalin put a resolution “to the archive” on Timashuk’s letter may be that the death of Zhdanov, who in recent years had walked too briskly along the party ladder, was quite on hand to the Father of Nations himself. Moreover, Zhdanov was far from being in favor of other members of the Politburo, and many accused him and his entourage that he was going to cut off a weighty piece of power, transferring the hotbed of influence of the party’s policy of the Republic to Leningrad. Was it true, or is it just court intrigue - a mystery. However, having buried Zhdanov with honors, dealing with medical errors and incorrect diagnoses was hesitated.

The actual design of the "doctors' case" from anonymous letters and denunciations in the real process of the century happened a few years later. One of the reasons is the unexpected interest of the Soviet counterintelligence in the activities of the so-called JAC (Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee). The interest itself has identified itself after the Jewish state of Israel, which arose in the Middle East, supported by the Soviet leadership, after several years of receiving help from the USSR in the struggle for independence, did not decide to take a course towards socialist (communist) development. Historians saw in the desire to shake up Jewish organizations on the territory of the Soviet Union Stalin’s personal offense against the Israeli leadership that had fallen into tattle. Whether this resentment was connected with the wave, let's say, the work on the EAC or was not - today is not so important. It is important that, under the representatives of this very EAC, they began to dig deep in order to discover possible ties with foreign intelligence services.

One of those under whom the digging began to lead, was Dr. Jacob Etinger - the personal physician of Lawrence Beria. Etinger was interrogated, as they say, with passion. During one of these interrogations, the physician was asked to confess that he worked for several foreign intelligence services at once under the auspices of the non-profit organization “Joint”, whose headquarters were based in the United States. The fridge camera did its job, and Etinger "confessed" that he worked for Western intelligence services, and "confessed" that his tasks included improper treatment and a conscious reduction in the life of prominent party leaders of the USSR. Zhdanov’s death resurfaced, as well as the deaths of other party leaders. Etinger's “confession” took place in 1950, but it did not make the mechanism move. The reason is in the death of Etinger himself, who died during the investigation.

Mikhail Ryumin, who, like Lydia Timashuk several years earlier, decided to “shed light” on the situation, gave a powerful impetus to the matter. Ryumin, who served as chief of the investigative unit for particularly important cases in the MGB of the USSR, reported "to the very top" that Minister of State Security Viktor Abakumov, who supervised Dr. Etinger’s interrogations, did not make public after the death of the interrogator that Etinger) with a group of doctors "deliberately killed" prominent political figures of the Land of the Soviets. Like, he knew, but did not inform, thereby covering up the activities of foreign intelligence services in the USSR. It was after the denunciation of Ryumin that the “mill” turned in millstones. At the same time, there is a version that Ryumin decided not to bring Abakumov himself, and that there were higher figures behind him who wanted to settle accounts with his closest Stalinist entourage, using Ryumin as a tool.

In July, 1951, Abakumov lost his post, and after Stalin's death was executed. The shooting of Abakumov in 1954 was indirectly proved by the fact that the fall of the Minister of State Security was beneficial to those who were ready to sign up as Stalin's successors in the event of his death. Ryumin, after his revelation about the failure of the Ministry of State Security, rose to the deputy minister, making a lightning jerk up. It was to him that Stalin ordered the development of the case of "killer doctors", for which Mikhail Ryumin readily took it.

Caps flew with the majority of heads of representatives of Lechsanupra. Lydia Timashuk's letter from 1948 of the year was attached to the case (Timashuk, by the way, received the Order of Lenin for her vigilance, which was safely deprived of her after Stalin’s death), the "testimony" of Jacob Etinger about his and his colleagues , documents on the medical errors of Professor Vinogradov and other doctors. Vinogradov himself and other prominent doctors recognized their mistakes made during the treatment of Zhdanov, but not all declared themselves to be accomplices of foreign intelligence services who received assignments for "improper treatment" from abroad.

Mikhail Ryumin decided to go ahead and show Stalin that the doctors of Lechsanupra were not just representatives of espionage structures, but also double agents, and even triple agents. The deputy minister has compiled an entire register of “spies”, whose activities in the USSR were conducted almost from the moment Stalin came to power. At the same time, a special segment of the "enemies of the people", according to Rumin's materials, corresponded to persons of Jewish nationality, who were quite a few among prominent medical workers. Evidence of the existence of a spy network was based on the documented testimony of the doctors themselves, who were ready to confirm everything, simply not enduring "special measures" during interrogations.

The whole power of the “doctors' case”, as a result of which, in a short time, the entire top of Lechsanupra was in the dungeons, was cultivated through the main information mouthpiece of that time - the Pravda newspaper. Soviet citizens "learned" about doctors who brutally tortured party leaders, how spy doctors tried to restrict the head of state in his activities to govern the country, about how the Jewish international network took root in the USSR and tries to paralyze the control system of the Soviet state . Indignation and simultaneous fear of people in white coats literally paralyzed Soviet society. In each medica, especially impressionable and “alert” citizens were ready to see an agent of British intelligence ...

Stalin himself was rooted in the conviction that all the doctors around him, along with representatives of the security forces, were agents of foreign special services. From a psychological point of view, there is a situation when the need to promote a certain idea to the masses so captures the mind of a person that he himself begins to grasp any data that could even remotely help him to strengthen his conclusions.

Here are some headlines from the Pravda newspaper, a sample of the beginning of 1953 of the year.

"Vile spies and murderers under the guise of professors, doctors"

"The case of killer doctors"

"For treason - shooting!"

"Dog - a dog's death!"

Meanwhile, the persecution of doctors led to the fact that the head of state himself was left virtually unprotected. All the luminaries of domestic medicine from Lechsanupra fell into a far from unbiased investigation, and people who had never had access to such a high-ranking patient, were not obliged to take care of Stalin’s health, were not familiar with the history of his illness, with the nuances of the previous stages of treatment. This gives reason to ask the question: wasn’t it profitable to unwind a ridiculous story with spy doctors to those who wanted to get rid of Stalin as soon as possible? ..
Quite possible. And if we consider that Stalin himself was sure that there was a spy net around his person, hitting the web of his own conspiracy, the game was worth the candle for her entertainers. On the other hand, the very idea of ​​using the case of doctors to approximate Stalin’s death could have appeared by chance, and, as they say, in the process. Whatever it was, but in March 1953, Stalin really had no one to help from among the eminent medical workers, and it would be up to everyone to decide whether to consider this as a common coincidence or as a continuation of conspiracy.

Within a month after the death of the Father of Nations, all the persecuted doctors in the high-profile case were released at the same time as the decision of the Presidium of the Central Committee of the CPSU to falsify the case of “pest doctors” was made. Thus, the blame for the "killer doctors" and the slandering of the name of prominent scientists was assigned exclusively to Stalin himself. Like, he and only he turned on the mechanism of the Moloch, and other representatives of the political Olympus could only aki the lamb of God watch the leader's anger ... And so that the direct participants of those events would not say too much, an additional purge was carried out. Under the hot hand of the post-Stalinist Seven-Boyars, the very same Colonel Ryumin, who “denounced” Minister Abakumov, also fell. As a result, both Abakumov and Ryumin were shot ... The doctors themselves were fully rehabilitated, making it clear that the main villain of this story is Stalin and only Stalin, and since Stalin is no more, then the ends with his death are in the water. It is done…

PS It is noteworthy that the full rehabilitation of doctors could take place even before Stalin's death (early March 1953), so S. Ignatiev (Minister of State Security) received in January 1953, data from the group of Nikolay Mesyatsev (assistant chief of the investigative unit), saying that all the evidence in this case was fabricated and obtained as a result of interrogations with addiction. Mikhail Ryumin was named among the main persons engaged in obvious fraud at the time. It is noteworthy that since February 1953, the newspaper Pravda has ceased to publish “incriminating” materials about “doctors-spies”, which can only say one thing: Stalin’s lack of guilt of doctors could well have realized shortly before his death, as well as realized his own spying, only for himself it was too late.

    It is sometimes thought that the modern riffraff shamer Stalin because they look miserable against the backdrop of his greatness, and at least artificially trample it in order to seem more magnificent themselves. And at the same time they forget such a proverb: "Any donkey can kick a dead lion."

    But tries generally post such articles, or lack of today's life, in which there are enough stories, abruptly "the case of doctors."
    Today, thousands of such cases involving the anti-Russian activities of various "joins" can be made legally legal. Yes, they just don’t start something. And this is a much more serious problem for Russia than the sucking-in of the “doctors’ case ”from the last century.

      The article clearly voiced the idea that Stalin was misled by a certain group of people with the intent to deprive him of qualified medical care in old age.
      WHERE IS LIBERASTY ??? or maybe you already see it in every foreigner and Jew, or in people not obsessing Jews and the West ??

      If it doesn’t, it’s not for Sudoplatov or Eitingon. Even Orlov, forced to flee to the United States, did not appropriate any state money and did not turn over any of our scouts. The generation of heroes is gone, alas, irrevocably.
      In this story, the Khrushchev clique dealt with Abakumov, who headed the SMERSH throughout the Patriotic War.

    Everything is simpler - the majority does not think much, but simply repeats the superficially "justified" memorized cliches.
    But the employers of those who create and “justify” these cliches pursue the goal of discrediting not so much Stalin as the ideas of communism.

    Stalin is the personification of the communist idea, the idea of ​​a just society, and it is precisely this that is dangerous for children professing the ideology of neoliberalism, which is a form of fascism.

    Of course, we must deal with our history, especially considering that 25-30 years old, instead of the history of the USSR, they were engaged in hysteria, history textbooks were written for grants, for example, Soros, who is a zombie without a fatherland, much more convenient than Russian citizens who are proud of their country, and about Khrushchev’s darling, documents they don’t confirm that he’s white and fluffy, as for traitors like Suvorov, it’s also a question, especially his petty greedy accomplices, who overwhelmed our counters with his writing, the least slander, what is his stool asking for, is it time to answer?

    There is no smoke without fire. They are trying to tear Russia-USSR-Russia from ancient times, and the better they live in Russia, the more furious, brazen and sophisticated these attempts are. I do not think that during the time of Stalin these "public" organizations were engaged in more useful activities in our country than now. Under the guise of these organizations, "work" is underway to destabilize the state.
    One of the reasons can be called suddenly the interest shown by Soviet counterintelligence in the activities of the so-called JAC (Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee).

    It is very unfortunate that UNEXPECTED interest was shown. What he did in the USSR after the war, this
    the so-called JAC (Jewish Antifascist Committee)
    . Well, they would "work" in Israel ...
    And now you need to be whiter alert, so as not to sprinkle ashes on his head.

    You did not think that the author may have a different point of view that is different from yours. Therefore, it is not fair to classify a person as a so-called to the "liberals." Whether you want it or not, but the events described in the article took place, you can’t get anywhere. And the fact that millions of citizens have been repressed is a fact! I agree that not only Stalin is responsible for this. All the top leaders of the USSR of that time had their hands to the elbow in blood. But the main responsibility for this lies with Stalin, as the head of state. And, as the head of state, he is responsible for his subordinates! Indeed, Stalin is a great statesman, his contribution to the development of the country is enormous. Never, under any rulers in our country, such lawlessness and atrocities were committed against their citizens.

          The Queen was arrested - on the 7th part of the 58th article, which (as amended in 1938) is formulated as follows:

          "58-7. Undermining state industry, transport, trade, money circulation or the credit system, as well as cooperation committed for counter-revolutionary purposes by appropriate use of state institutions and enterprises, or counteracting their normal activities, as well as using state institutions and enterprises or counteracting their activities, committed in interests of former owners or interested capitalist organizations entail -
          social protection measures specified in Articles 58-2 of this Code. ” (“The social protection measures specified in Article 58-2” are “the execution and confiscation of all property, with the assumption, under extenuating circumstances, of reduction to imprisonment with strict isolation for a term of not less than five years with the confiscation of all property”.) Contrary to the orders of the Director of the Institute I.T. Kleimenova, Korolev secretly from him begins to engage not in powder rockets (or, in modern terminology, solid-fuel rockets), but in liquid-fuel rockets. From the point of view of the approaching war, getting short-range rockets into service was much more important than flying in Space. Korolev saw further, but closer to the requests of that time was Kleimenov. Therefore, Kleimenov was right.

              Firstly, my name is not Andrei Yanuaryevich Vyshinsky, I am not familiar with the materials of the criminal case, and I have no legal education.

              Secondly, remember the example of von Braun, who, at the height of the war, also began to satisfy his own ambitions. And only the intercession of Albert Speer saved him from the concentration camp.
              In a formidable environment, there is NO place for idle curiosity. If the Israeli developers of the Iron Dome had, instead of developing a means of counteracting shelling, they would have, for example, set up a bathyscaphe. Wasting resources, precious time and finances - they would sit on the Israeli quiche, and as I understand it, LONG sit.

          And "higher" is how much - 4.1 million, of which 800 thousand were sentenced to the highest degree?
          And this is for 33 years, despite the fact that in these statistics there are convicted not only for counter-revolutionary crimes, but also for "other especially dangerous".
          No matter how much speculation on this topic, no one has been able to document these speculations in the meantime, despite the fact that reporting in the USSR was at a very high level.

          1. Korolev S.P. in 1938 convicted of wrecking. A pest is good, it hurt so much that it sent the first artificial satellite and Gagarin into space.
          He sent satellites into space after "suggestion", and was convicted in accordance with the legislation in force at that time.

          The loss is irreplaceable, but the story is muddy - what is the combination played out by Lysenko. The case seems to have been fabricated, but to whom it was needed and why at the moment it is unclear.

    the author completely rejects the geopolitical plane and forgets the demands of the state that the USSR recognized as the first in the world geopolitical arena - Israel. if we look at this story in this plane, namely, in what illegal claims Israel declared to the Soviet Union, then the case of pest doctors is just the first Chinese warning, followed by a “case of sabotage engineers” or “case of dentists-plavers”. What did Israel demand from the Soviets? and he demanded no less than the landing of the contingent of the Red Army troops to protect the young state from the "evil Arab neighbors" and in this case, the relations of the USSR with the Islamic world would be spoiled forever.
    that is what Stalin warned against, both Medvedev and Putin are successfully performing. The author plays a stupid liberalist and revisionist.

    "the case of pest doctors" It had a clearly tinted background with ethnic roots and a large Middle Eastern preference.

    My mother-in-law, the kingdom of heaven to her, at this time studied in St. Petersburg on a pediatric. They have half a year of students disappeared. And so many teachers are gone.
    In those days, the mass of people was repressed not because Comrade Stalin was so bloodthirsty. But because it was by such methods that the political struggle was waged. And in this struggle the whole environment of the interfering figures was cleared. In this situation, it must be understood that the Zionist organizations really fought against the USSR. I emphasize that the USSR fought against Zionism, and not against the Jews. To quickly and effectively eliminate the influence of such organizations could only be energetic actions. But the formed centers of power tried to take advantage of the situation, waiting for the right moment to dump Stalin. As a result, revenge went under the comb of "all Jews." But with the honor of our special services, the Soviet Holocaust planned by the West did not happen. And the number of repressed was clearly not enough for the charges. Well, perhaps they quarreled with Israel for decades.

          Dmitry, the whole thing is that even on a single site, "Military Review" there are enough visitors who are simply not familiar with many historical events due to various circumstances, including the described events. Therefore, my article in no way pretends to be referred to as a kind of extremely in-depth study (after all, no in-depth study can fit within one article). One of her uncomplicated goals: to try to interest modern young people (and there are quite a few such representatives) with episodes of national history, to attract people to read literature, watch documentaries and everything in this spirit. If you managed to interest at least one reader, it means that the modest goal is achieved, if no one means, you need to work on yourself ...

        I will ask you only one question - how is Putin different from the same bulk? and I’ll answer this question myself - in principle, nothing but one moment, one is legalized by the authorities, the second is not there yet, and therefore it is eager to legalize itself in all possible ways, in America they call it self-made men. What does power represent in our time? the interests of oligocratic transnational corporations, for which the interests of the people are indifferent, they need the resources and leverage of government. all the tales of democracy are believed only by the pioneers of capitalism, this is the difference between their approach - the capitalist world, and ours - Russian transculture, where Russians as a people have always been a cement and guarantee of fair relations. politics has always been built on the friendship of peoples and minority interests were brought for the sake of the majority, now the picture is completely opposite when the totalitarian scheme is superimposed on the majority, for the interests of a handful of oligocrats. bulk does not know why he is going into politics? Of course he knows, like Putin knows what he is doing. the majority is betrayed - the minority rules. liberals are supporters of the regime and they are publishing all kinds of rubbish as if no one understands what this is done for. this is done in order to divide and rule

And the old Jewish doctor spat and performed three operations ... even though I now wear thick glasses, but still see my eyes ... For the second time, a doctor, a Jewish doctor, helped me out with emergency light after the accident ... fought for life until the last. It turned out not in vain.

    By the way, the list of arrested few Jews. In November, professors V. N. Vinogradov, V. Kh. Vasilenko, M. S. Vovsi, B. B. Kogan were arrested. And in December - professors A. M. Grinshtein, A. I. Feldman, Ya. S. Temkin. Jewish doctors appear only at the very end ... Professor Vinogradov during interrogation, he showed the following: “On July 5, 1948, the electrocardiograms taken by the doctor KARPAY were not typical for myocardial infarction, in connection with which I, EGOROV, VASILENKO, MAYOROV and KARPAY, discussions among themselves, decided not to diagnose myocardial infarction.
    They forgot about the cause of Zhdanov’s death ... FOR 4 years
    His death was remembered after a letter from the senior investigator of the investigative unit of the Ministry of State Security of the USSR on especially important cases of Lieutenant Colonel M. Ryumin, transferred to Stalin on July 2, 1951, G. Malenkov. The letter contained a whole bunch of serious allegations against Minister of State Security V. Abakumov. One of them was that he banned Ryumin, who was conducting the case of the former consultant of the Kremlin’s Medical and Sanitary Directorate (LSUK), professor-therapist J. Etinger, who was arrested on November 18, 1950, to investigate the terrorist activity of the latter, who admitted that he had helped with harmful treatment 1945, the death of the Secretary of the Central Committee of the CPSU (B.) A. Scherbakov.
    On December 4, 1952, Stalin submitted for consideration by the Presidium of the Central Committee the question "On the situation in the MGB and on wrecking in the medical field." Abakumov “indulging doctors-pests” and N. S. Vlasik, head of the Main Directorate of Security of the USSR Ministry of State Security, were arrested (they were arrested on December 16, 1952). The Minister of Health of the USSR, E. I. Smirnov, also paid - he was dismissed.
    On January 13, 1953, an article was published in Pravda stating that Zhdanov had died as a result of improper treatment. However, instead of identifying the true culprits of the death of Zhdanov, professors Egorov and Vinogradov, for some reason doctors of Jewish nationality, Vovsi, Kogan, Feldman, Etinger, Greenstein and others who had Zhdanov’s death, were named in the article (not without the knowledge of the MGB) very insignificant attitude.
    A number of prominent Jews (including Ehrenburg) signed a collective appeal calling for the punishment of the arrested doctors. But on February 2, a brief litter appeared on the collective letter of the Jews: “archive,” meaning that Stalin had stopped the case. Both the hard and soft versions of this letter were not published, - it was Stalin who did not allow this to be done.
    Stalin LEFT without doctors and without Vlasik devoted to him ...

    Yes, it seems that way. Given that Stalin soon died precisely because of illness, officially for medical reasons, this is the only logical explanation for the "case of doctors." They remove the devoted body, remove the professional doctors and you can poison the object and write off it for a stroke. I have not seen a single photo or film fragment with a sick emaciated leader, it should have been preserved and would have been pulled out long ago, published. Health was in good condition. The Trotskyists still got the General Secretary. Otherwise, why would doctors and Jews be pressed. Used Israel as a good occasion-moment, a planned operation.

    In essence, the “Kremlin doctors’ case ”was the final one in a series of government events held as part of what began in 1948. the fight against cosmopolitanism and worship of the West. There are enough materials on this subject. Given the specifics of our forum, of particular interest are those excited in 1949-1950.

    Paranoia at the end of life was likely to some extent. From such a life it can very easily happen. Underground, the death of his wife, exile, Civil, war with the Trotskyists, again the death of his wife, War. On this paranoia he was caught in part. Partly the repressive mechanism worked, which, as you launch, it chopped up a bunch of people. Beria was head on a nuclear project, and those whom he left safe, slammed the whole thing. Then, however, he slammed the plot against himself. Aged or something, relaxed or tired, it is not clear. Perhaps, really, tired of these endless wars, struggles, I wanted to finally engage in creation.
    And, it seems, it was like that, they perished with the words "Long live Comrade Stalin." In the film "Defender of Sedov" the NKVD-shnik is surprised, like the enemies are disguising themselves to the very end, you shoot him, and he shouts "Long live Comrade Stalin!"

    Of these several million deaths in the camps over 20 years, roughly, half or so are criminals. Of the remaining political, some, possibly a significant part, sat in the case: there were enough pests. Therefore, if we talk about the innocent victims, which at all times were, including now, we need to talk about several hundred thousand. "Millions" is at least 2 million, 2 million in my opinion does not work.
    These Zinoviev, Raddeks were not white fluffy. They were all revolutionary terrorists, knights of the cloak and dagger of their time, and Kirov, and Kotovsky, etc., on their conscience. Apart from the block, there was no way to get along with them.

    Stalin at one time as a communist, atheist, materialist was, as it were, a big admirer of Darwin. Genetics in the 30s. called eugenics - a term now rightly equated to racism. Hitler was also a Darwinist, you see. In the name “My struggle”, “struggle” is from the term “struggle for survival” from the theory of natural selection. Fascism was a scientific experiment, which is now hushed up by atheists, evolutionists. When Stalin realized this after the war, he dispersed all the geneticists.
