Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on previously unexamined and unknown aspects of Pinḥas Rutenberg's life and activities. The name of Vladimir L'vovich Burtsev, a renowned 'hunter of provocateurs' - a public and political figure, historian and publisher, journalist and literary figure - is known only to those who are familiar with the Russian emigration. A new stage in the relations between Burtsev and Rutenberg came with the outbreak of the Arab riots in Palestine. European circles, including Communist ones saw the Arab acts as an expression of spontaneous liberation activity that was related to nationalist extremism and to the language of Comintern slogans. In the mid-1930s and subsequently, the relations between Rutenberg and Burtsev assumed a new content and character. This was primarily related to the fact that Rutenberg suddenly 'warmed' to the Soviet Union, as indicated by his remark to Burtsev that 'now is not an appropriate time to fight with the Bolshevik government'.
