THE COMPLETE UNABRIDGED ENGLISH VERSION OF “200 YEARS TOGETHER” BY SOLZHENITSYN:
The new and old versions are posted here for Anons to compare.
From the book:
The White-Russian powers reported: “The presence of jews in the villages acts with harm upon the economic and moral condition of the rural population, because the jews… encourage drunkenness among the local population.” “In the stance taken by the powers -that-be, it was indicated among other things that the jews led the peasants astray with drunkenness, idleness and poverty, that they had given them vodka on credit etc. *reception of pledges for vodka+.” But “the brandy operations were an attractive source of income” for both the Polish landowners and the jewish commissioners.
So, the jews fucked up the Russians with the alcohol. Nice to know.
