A Lasting Wound: How Jews Played a Leading Role in the Murders of Tsar Nicholas II and His Family

A Lasting Wound: How Jews Played a Leading Role in the Murders of Tsar Nicholas II and His Family, The author was a British journalist who entered Ekaterinburg, shortly after the murders of the Royal family, after the city had been taken from the Bolsheviks by the forces of the Siberian government. (p. 165). The work is based largely on sworn statements by eyewitnesses (See below).


This classic work is timely for a number of reasons. A century is now passing since the events. This work clarifies a number of issues, notably the role of the Jews. But why bring up the Jews? To this day, Russians (e. g., Alexander Solzhenitsyn) commonly think of Communism as originally a foreign (Jewish) development. There is also the matter of collective responsibility. Thus, Jews commonly say that Poles need to “come to terms with past” over Kielce and Jedwabne (regardless of what actually happened), even though relatively few Poles were involved. By the same standard, Jews need to “come to terms with the past” over the leading role of Jews in the murders of the Russian Royal family, and millions of others, even though relatively few Jews were involved.


Let us first consider the chain of command in the squad that guarded the Romanovs. Author Robert Wilton includes a Russian-language document (Plate VIII), which is translated into English (p. 154). (I can read Russian, and can vouch for the veracity of the translation). It consists of an order, from Jacob Sverdlov [Yankel Solomon], for Filipp Goloshchekinn [Isay Goloshchyokin], appointing Jacob Yurovsky [Yakov Yurovsky] as head of the squad, and the replacement of the soldiers within the squad (More on this later).

This work includes the sworn depositions of eyewitnesses to the murders at Ekaterinburg, and I mention only one. Pavel Medvedev testified that Jacob Yurovsky was fully in charge of the murderous squad, that the Russian soldiers within his crew had been replaced by Letts [actually, Magyarized Germans (p. 125)], and that Yurovsky personally fired some shots point-blank to finish-off the wounded Alexis. (p. 290).

There was a second wave of murders, of members of the Romanov family, at Perm and, still later, at Petrograd. (pp. 119-on). This proves that the destruction of the Romanovs was a systematic and premeditated act, and not something caused by undisciplined or overzealous revolutionaries, or by the local vagaries of the war between the Reds and the Whites.


Nowadays, we hear that, although Jews were strongly overrepresented among revolutionaries at the time of the Russian Revolution, they were always outnumbered by, and subordinate to, leading Russian Communists. Author Robert Wilton upends this exculpatory narrative. The following are direct quotes:

Sverdlov [Solomon] was the uncrowned Tsar of the Soviets. His authority was for more than a year really higher than that of Lenin or even Trotzky [Trotsky: Bronshteyn]. He dominated the Tsik [Central Executive Committee], and his creatures ruled the Chrezvychaika [Inquisition]. (p. 27, 119).

The Germans knew what they were doing when they sent Lenin’s pack of Jews into Russia. They chose them as agents of destruction. Why? Because the Jews were not Russians and to them the destruction of Russia was all in the way of business, revolutionary or financial. The whole record of Bolshevism in Russia is indelibly impressed with the stamp of alien invasion. The murder of the Tsar, deliberately planned by the Jew Sverdlov (who came to Russia as a paid agent of Germany) and carried out by the Jews Goloshchekin, Syromolotov, Safarov, Viokov, and Yurovsky, is the act not of the Russian people, but of this hostile invader. The Jewish domination in Russia is supported by certain Russians: the ‘burgess” Ulianov, alias Lenin [who, BTW, we now know to be part Jewish], the ‘noble’ Chicherin, the ‘dissenter’ Bonch-Bruevich. They are all mere screens and dummies behind which the Sverdlovs and the thousand and one Jews of Sovdepia continue their work of destruction; having wrecked and plundered Russia by appealing to the ignorance of the working folk, they are now using their dupes to set up a new tyranny worse than any that the world has known…When the Jew Kenegisser assassinated the Jew Uritsky, the Soviets ordained a Terror throughout the land. Rivers of Russian blood had to wipe away the stain caused by a Jew who dared to oppose the Jewish rulers of unhappy Russia. (p. 148).

---End of direct quotes----

Nowadays, we sometimes hear the exculpatory argument that Jewish Communists were "not really Jews". They most certainly were. [See the first comment under this review.]
