"Krivitsky, You are Shmelka Ginsberg"

June 1939
Saturday Evening Post;6/24/1939, Vol. 211 Issue 52, p22
The article comments on the assertion of the Russian Communist Party's official periodical "New Masses" regarding the true identity of General Krivitsky. The publication has pointed out that the general's real name is Shmelka Ginsberg, an Austrian. The author notes that the Russian government has decided to deny the existence of Krivitsky rather than to refute his allegations. The author argues that to deny the existence of Krivitsky might embarrass any but the Russian government.
