"On January 13, 1953, the official press agency Tass announced the arrest of a group of 'killer doctors' who were systematically doing away with prominent public figures in the Soviet Union. Nine doctors, six of them Jews, were cited, and in the next few weeks many more were carted off to the dread prisons of Lubyanka and Lefortovo. Among them was Yakov Lvovich Rapoport, a distinguished pathologist; this book is a firsthand memoir of his imprisonment, revealling not only the suffering caused by a fabricated 'plot' but also the devastating climate of antisemitism and the appalling disarray of medicine and science in the Stalinist era."
