Catechism of the Jew in the USSR.
Published in Tel Aviv in 1958.
The Catechism (drill, teaching) for many years was passed around in Russia in SAMIZDAT form without ever being published in the official press. Without making any actual changes in the original Russian text it was polished in translation, rearranged and supplied with headings by a Russian Goy. Its purpose was to make the alleged Jewish brilliance more readily visible for the Goyim of the world.
JEWS! Love one another, help one another. Help one another even if you hate one another!
A. World seen through the prism of the Gods promise.
Our God willed us to own the world and we own it. Our task consists of retaining it in our hands. Refract all the events through the prism of our interests and scrutinize each event from the point of view of the benefits or damage it can bring to the Jews!
B. Relative Status of Jews and Goyim.
1. 3. Everything that they know and capable of we are capable and know of too. All that we know and feel they should not know and feel. All that they have is their limit. All that we have is our means for gaining more. All that they have today is ours being in their temporary possession. To take from them what God promised to us that is our task.
C. Economics of the Struggle with the Goyim.
1. 4. Never reduce your pressure. The more rigid is the Goyim resistance the more significant are our expenditures and all the more higher our profit and our savings should be. Our profit today should cover the possible loses in the future pogroms which occur from time to time in every country. Let Goyim pay today for that part of their own which they somewhere would take back.
1. 5. We must always be ready to escape from the rage and hatred of the Goyim, to escape to that country where they would accept us on the account of our revitalizing for their economy capitals.
1. 6. A periodic change of countries of residence in search of a more benevolent environment for existence is a part of our strategy. In this is the symbol of the eternal Jew Agasfer the inexhaustible optimist and eternal wanderer.
1. 7. But we shall leave, if necessary, being not poor and sick but healthy and prosperous. Money are our feet.
1. 8. We move our center of gravity to that place where beforehand we transferred our money, our capital.
1. 9. After being strengthened materially by collecting our tax in the countries of our dispersion, from time to time we gather in the country of our ancestors to harden our spirit, our forces, our symbols and our faith in unity. We gather in order to disperse again. And so it be forever.
D. Importance of Unity.
1) Unity as a vehicle of power.
1. 10. Our power is in unity, this is the pledge of our successes, our salvation and prospering. Many peoples perished in Diaspora because they neither had a clear cut program for actions nor the feeling of an elbow. We, however, thanks to the feeling of collectivism, passed through the centuries and the peoples, preserved ourselves, increased in numbers, and grew stronger.
2) Power in the sake of power.
1. 11. Unity that is the goal and also the means for reaching it. That is the salt of the matter, to that we must strive. All the rest is derivative and it will naturally come by itself. Help one another, don't be afraid to become known as nationalists, do not be afraid of protectionism this is our main tool.
3) Jewish unity and internationalism.
1. 12. Our nationalism is international and for that reason it is eternal. The door there is opened for the Jews of all nationalities, of all faiths, and of all parties. Only that internationalism is true which has blood ties with the Jewry. Anything else is a provocation and deceit. Bring in more people kindred to us in blood for only they would secure for us the desirable environment.
E. Continuance of the Generations.
1. 13. Prepare the Jewish youth to receive the baton of the generations. Let every generation of the nonJews to bump into our hardened in depth defenses. Every time an older generation is passing off the scene an another even more powerful cohort of timely prepared and tempered young Jews should stand up in their place as a substitution. It is necessary to promote our young beforehand into the positions of leadership as early as possible demonstrating their coming of age and brilliance. Let it be that they are not on a par with it for a while. They will ripen up while in their position. That one who has the power is always right. We have to pass to our children more than we received from our fathers. They, after preserving and multiplying the received, will pass it on, in their turn, to their posterity. In the continuance of the generations is our power, our immortality and stability.
F. Mastery of Your Own Life.
1) Do not live by a blind chance.
1. 14. The world is cruel and there is no place there for philanthropy. Every nation is a smith of its happiness. It is not our business to care about the Russian national cadres. If they do not think of themselves why should we think of them? Do not take Russians and Arabs, who live contemplating and relying on a chance, as an example. Do not expect favors from the nature our task is to take them from her.
2) Harden your character.
1. 15. Be leaders in everything, always strive to be the first! Train a leading character in yourself every hour and every minute using for that even small things of everyday life. Never yield in anything, try your best not to yield even in small things, be it a seat in the public transportation or a line in a store.
3) National cadres.
1. 16. Form out national cadres. The cadres is the Holiest of the Holiest. The cadres decide everything. The cadres of today is our tomorrow. Every laboratory, every chair, every institute should be made into a smith shop of our national cadres.
4) Collective as a ramrod.
1. 17. Create your own collectives and with these collectives push out the nonJews. Remember that all high paid, influential, and profitable positions, they all, are our national income.
5) Give to Goyim what they deserve.
1. 18. The Goyim should work under our guidance and be useful to us. The one who is of no use to us should be expelled. There are no public interests outside of our interests! Those who are not with us are against us! An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth! So we were taught by Moses and so our ancestors lived. So we would live. Vengeance is a Holy feeling, it brings up the character and affirm the Human Being. Banish from yourself the feeling of humbleness and humility towards those who hurt you. Leave the slogans of Christian mercy, humility, selfabasement and selfdenial to stupid Goyim they deserve just that.
6) Promote double standard.
1. 19. Preach and plant the Christian virtues among the Goyim but in your soul you stay hard and uncompromising. Never make peace with our enemies. If you forgive them a small mischief today tomorrow they will inflict a larger damage. Do not get used to mischiefs and knock out the desire to cause them to you from others.
7) Disarm the Goyim.
1. 20. Remember that every nonJew who grew up to our level, can occupy a position which could have been occupied by one of ours. We create collectives for preventing Goyim from hindering our way of life. Let Goyim try to create their own collectives. They would hardly succeed in it for they would start quarreling between themselves before they had enough time for accomplishing anything, and we will help them in it.
8) Downgrade the Goyim.
1. 21. Take the power in your hands in any collective and make use of it to our advantage. It is we who should be in charge of the administrative and creative part of the production process. Let Goyim provide for us the crude material and technical base for our creativity. Let them take care of the cleanliness of the working quarters and secure the fruits of our labor. Let them be no higher than a security guard and a cleaning lady.
G. Phenomena of Fascism.
1. 22. And the last advice. Be always on the watch out, the phenomenon of
Spanish Inquisition and German fascism should not repeat themselves. Put out in
embryo any attempts to contrapose us against the society. Destroy the
antiJewish tendencies at the very beginning whatever form should they appear.
Fascism is not an accidental phenomena. It appears everywhere where we
underestimate the strife of the local people for mastering over their land.
Fascism is dormant and is ripening in all peoples. Fortunately for us the
different peoples come to it at different times.
1. 23. Inform one another about everything which can be to our advantage or disadvantage. Information This is the Holiest of the Holiest. Money, Cadres, and Information are the three wales on which our wellbeing stands.
1. 24. The sacred obligation, a duty of every Jew, is to inform another Jew about the intentions of the Goyim. Today you helped me and tomorrow I would help you in that is our power.
2. 25. Our ideology is opposite to that of the Goyim in principle. They say: It is better to make less but better. We say: It is better to have more and of better quality. They say: It is better to be poor but healthy, than to be rich but sick. We say: It is better to be healthy and rich than poor and sick. They say: To pay back is as pleasant as to accept, we say: To pay back may be pleasant, but to accept is also useful. They say: Do it according to law this is your duty. We say: Do it against the law and I will reward you for that. They say: To win or to die. Our motto: Victory in the sake of life but life in the sake of victory. (What is the victory for if there is no life? The bitterness of defeat can be suffered through everything will come to those who know how to wait).
A. Selflimitation of Goyim.
1) The reason for selflimitation.
2. 26. They are limited in their capacities and due to that they set limits to everything. We, however, say: The capacities of a HUMAN BEING are boundless because he conducts himself according to the circumstances!.
2) The effects of selflimitation.
2. 27. Remember at all times about the limits which the Goyim set for themselves because their thought process coarsened within those boundaries. They are not capable of crossing them. In this is their misfortune and in this is our advantage. Talk and act as their morality does not allow it for them, as their understanding does not permit them to do. Do what they deem impossible and improbable. They would not believe in that you are capable for the words and actions for which they themselves are not capable.
B. The two Categories of Goyim.
1) Judge the Goyim by their traits of character rather than by their abilities or deeds.
2. 28. Pay special attention to the defiant and stubborn, to those who refuse to bend their heads facing our superiority, who refuse to work for us and who counter our practice and politics. Sooner or later from such people the antiSemites would evolve. Do not allow the small caliber antiSemites to mature into the big men of pogrom! Let them fade out while in embryo together with their stubborn idea of national dignity. Highlight them, compromise them under any pretext and on any occasion, organize against them employing all available means. While they are alone they cannot hold out against our collectivism and against our pressure. Let them thousand times be right in their trivia whatnots they are guilty all the same for hindering us.
2) Different treatment for each of the categories.
2. 29. Only that one receives the right for privileges and quiet life who humbly follows us and goes together with us. That one who wants to go his own independent ways is potentially dangerous for us and must be deprived of any support and means for existence.
III. Suppression of the Goyim.
A. Exploiting deceit blindness of the Goyim ideology.
1) Creation of false images in the minds of Goyim. 3. 30. It is not important what you say it is important how you say it. Your selfconfidence will be perceived as a conviction, your ambition as loftiness of mind, the manner to teach and to correct as superiority.
2) Paralyzing the Goyim mental facility.
3. 31. Talk and act with aplomb, energetically and aggressively, discouragingly and bewilderingly. Create more noise and balderdash, more rigmarole and scientifically looking pseudoscientific gibberish. Create theories, hypotheses, directions, schools of thoughts, methods real and imaginary, the more extravagant the better! Let it not confuse you that nobody needs them, let it not confuse you that they will be forgotten tomorrow. The new day will come. The new theories will come. In this the power of our spirit expresses itself, in this is its selfassertion, in this is our superiority. Let the Goyim pay our promissory notes. Let them be pondering in search of rational grains in our ideas, let them search and find there something which is not there at all. Tomorrow we will give a new food for their primitive brains.
3) The Goyim eggheads.
3. 32. If some egghead would attempt to unveil you, the rest of them would not listen to him and denounce him because by unveiling you he indicted their stupidity and the mob does not forgive it.
4) Creation of a makebelieve world in the Goyim minds.
3. 33. Hold in your hands all the means of propaganda and information: press, radio, television, cinema. It is necessary to infiltrate still further the apparatus of the party and state control. Form the public opinion around any question taking to account our national interests. A problem can be made out of any trifle thing and any problem can be reduced to a trifle. Not a single societal process could be left to itself. If it does not bring us advantages, let it go on the breaks or direct it against our enemies the Goyim. Any new undertaking should be directed by us to lead it into the right direction.
B. Psychological Warfare Against the Goyim.
1) Attracting attention to yourself and deceiving.
3. 34. Twist their brains, wind up their nerves! Suppress the will of those who contradict you. Compromise those who stand out and scream, set the vanity of the mob against the skeptics. In the discussions and disputes use the rhetorical tricks bordering on indecency. Request the unbeliever and doubter to give you his family name, his place of work, the position he occupies. As a rule it shocks and scares them and they retreat. Demand the answers and upon receiving them keep stating, paying no attention to the matter: It is not so, it is entirely wrong.
2) Use of terror tactics.
3. 35. Spread compromising rumors against those diehards and create for them doubtful reputation. At the end, even those who support them would begin to fear, those who know them all too well and have an excellent opinion about them. Deprive them of the links and contacts, deprive them of the possibility to work effectively, put in doubt the rational of keeping them employed and in the current positions. Isolate them, set the crowd against them, deprive them of the influential positions in the society, provoke them into conflicts. Debase them, ignore them, hurt them by the injustice of rewards and punishments, and when they protest accuse them of nonsubordination, disobedience, inability to go along with people and crankiness.
3) Slander as a weapon.
3. 36. Appeal to public and administration, drag them in front of the Party Committee, to police, if possible to court.
3. 37. If you are older accuse them of disrespect to elders. If they are of the same age accuse them of violating the fundamentals of brotherhood and, make sure of it, of internationalism. The experience of many generations testifies for the efficiency of those feats. So all, the so called, exploiters act motivated by the necessity to hold peoples in obedience. To accuse is the most important! Let the accused justify their acts! The one who does it is already half guilty!
4) Using of the State power.
3.38. If the opportunity presents itself, contrast their behavior against the political platform, write reports and anonymous letters about them, accuse them of antisocial behavior and of economic sabotage. Provoke them to the rebellion against the state power, and then destroy them by means of that power.
5) Misleading of the Goyim.
3. 39. Let Goyim persuade one another to use prudence, temperance and flexibility towards us. Let them hold back our pressure cautiously. We, however, should act decisively and fast always confronting them with an accomplished fact. Let them conduct after that the long and fruitless discussions against our methods they have no weapons. Let them accomplish one deed by a willful decision. While they conceive this deed, reach an accord on carrying it out and accomplish it we would accomplish ten more important deeds. Let their resistance stimulate us rather than slow down. Their counteraction is necessary for maintaining our fighting spirit and the state of readiness but is of no other importance for us.
C. Chaos as a Weapon.
3. 40. It should be either our order or full organizational disorder. There, where they want to do without us, the chaos must reign! Act in such a manner as to maintain the disorder until the worn out Goyim, in desperation, ask us to take power in our hands and secure for them a quiet life.
D. Keeping the Goyim Unaware.
3. 41. Buy out, snatch and destroy but do not allow republishing of the materials which unveil our tactics and strategy and show Jews in a bad light. The Goyim peoples should not remember and know the factual causes of Jewish pogroms and prosecutions. In those questions they should be aware of it only through our interpretation.
IV. The Russian Goyim.
A. Description of the Russian National Traits.
4. 42. Russians are not capable of deep thinking, of making analysis of the matters and of profound generalizations. They are like pigs who live with their snouts dug into the ground and not suspecting that there is a sky above. They perceive all the events very superficially and all too concrete. They do not see the facts as the succession of events, they do not see connections between them and they are not capable of thinking, generalizing, and making abstractions. For them every event is just an event no matter how often it occurs.
4. 43. Russians are stubborn but they are not steadfast enough in pursuit of their goals. They are lazy, that is why they are always in a hurry. They try to solve all their problems at once. They sacrifice a little for the great task of a decisive victory. But such victory either do not come at all or, if winning, they find themselves with a broken pot. We profess the tactics of small victories, though we are not against the big ones. A small victory is also a victory!
4. 44. Russians neither know how to direct nor how to obey. Russians are genetic saboteurs. Russians are envious. Russians hate their cobrothers when they stand out from the gray mass. Make it possible for them to tear up those who are sticking out and they would tear them up to shreds with pleasure.
4. 45. Russians do not know how to beg and consider it selfabasing, but at the same time they are anyway already abased and poor. We say: Any abasement is benevolent if it brings profit. In the sake of reaching the goal it is proper to abase yourself for it can be done also with dignity. There are no immoral deeds if they contribute to assertion and prosperity of our people. The goal makes the means Holy.
4. 46. Russians are stupid and crude. Their stupidity and crudity they call honesty, decency and living out their principles. Their inability to adjust and to change their behavior responding to the situation, absence of flexibility of the mind, they call to be yourself or living up to the principles. The Goyim are stupid and crude to such an extent that they do not even know how to lie. Their primitiveness and stupidity they again call honesty and decency, though by their nature they are deceitful and dishonorable. The inherent for them primitiveness in the ancient times they called Barbarism, in the middle ages Knighthood (Intrepidity, Chivalrousness, Gallantry) and later Gentleman attitude. They committed suicides over their empty principles. Let them continue to do that.
B. Jews as the Arbitrators.
4. 47. Be always the arbitrators, take the posture of peacemakers, defend the unfortunates against whom the crowd has gathered but only so much as to make yourself known as kind and objective. A little bit of selfmastery and you will take over the place of the one who has just been torn apart. When two Russians are fighting the Jew wins. Stir and heat up in Russians hatred towards one another. Always do it under the cover of benevolence, unnoticeable and subtly. Let them fight between themselves for you will always become their arbiter. Russians know neither how to live nor how to set their goals. We set the ephemeral goals for them and they try to solve them.
C. Using of Russian Compassion.
4. 48. Play on the compassion of Russians. Portray yourself as poor and wretched, call for pity and sympathy to yourself, spread rumors about the people who is an eternal sufferer, prosecuted in the past and discriminated at present. The tactics of a downtrodden Jew was tested by millennia! Let the Russians have less than we do, they all the same will help us to have more. Russians love to be gooddoers and benefactors for an every pauper longs to be a benefactor because it elevates. They have all the more greatness of soul the less is a possibility of its realization. Take from them what they can give to you: From the scabby sheep at least a flock of wool!.
D. Harassment of Russians.
1) Accusation of antisemitism.
4.49. Accuse of antiSemitism those who attempt to unveil you. Stick the antiSemitic tags upon them and you will see with which pleasure the rest of them would uphold that version. Generally all Russians are antiSemites but as soon as you stick that tag upon one of them he becomes defenseless for all the rest of them throw him to us as a sacrifice and destroy him with their own hands. But we will brand the next victim.
2) Polite effrontery is our motto.
4. 50. If a Russian would attempt to show himself and to attract attention, create at this moment all the more loud noises, shuffle your feet, keep standing up and sitting down, squeak with chairs, laugh, talk, tittletattle, cough and clear your nose, interrupt with addresses, conversations, jokes and so on. Create for the Russians great many small inconveniences which they would not be able to recognize at once. Put your objects on their belongings, step on their feet, breath in their faces, talk provocatively loud. Let then constantly feel your elbow on their side. Russians could not withstand that for long. Avoiding scandals they leave, leaving their place for you...They consider it especially impressing if they slam the door and leave. Let them have such a possibility! Polite effrontery is our motto.
E. Expulsion of Russians from the Creative Process.
1. Internationalism against Russians.
4. 51. As an exclusion to the rule the Goyim of nonRussian decent may be allowed to participate in a creative process. Never allow it to the Russians! This would always be a reproach for us. Do not be afraid to become a notorious nationalists. The illusion of internationalism will be maintained for us by presence of the persons of a mixed nationality with an admixture of the Jewish blood or, at worst, by the representatives of the national minorities. If you have a vacancy hire only a Jew.
2) The best allies of the Jews against the Russians.
4. 52. If you cannot do that, liquidate the position. If you can do neither of that take an Asian. If he is not available take a Polak, Ukrainian or, at the worst, a WhiteRussian those have their own accounts with the Russians to settle. After working on them a bit they will become your allies. They all are antiSemites only in their native land. In Russia it is more to their advantage to be internationalists. By this they would secure for themselves a necessary living space. Use that way.
F. Damaging Russian Historical Past.
4.53. Do not destroy openly the monuments of the ancient Russia but do not restore them either. The years pass and they will deteriorate naturally on their own. Hooligans and the lovers of the antiquity will tear them apart brick by brick. Pretend that you do not notice it being busy with solving the big tasks of the peoples economy. The people without history is as a child without his parents. He could be shaped into anything that may be necessary, to inoculate him with our world view, with our way of thinking.
G. Destruction of the Nations.
4. 54. Using that method the whole nations can be defaced; at first they loose their memory and traditions and than we form them into our image and likeness.
H. Special Treatment of the Influential Russians.
1) Keep them isolated and under constant watch.
4. 55. Hold under the indefatigable control every step of the influential and promising Russians. Do not let them withdraw and unite. Do not let them have any close and direct links between themselves. Their contacts should be with us and through us. That spells the information, that spells the influence. Do not let them discuss any questions without us. Everywhere where two Russians appear there should be at least one Jew. Be ever and everywhere present.
2) Make their children Jewish.
4. 56. If you fail in blocking and drying up the young and promising Russians make them controllable. Attract them into your companies, create around them a tight ring of Jewish surrounding, deprive them of contacts and acquaintances besides you. Compel them to marry Jewish women and only then give them the green light. Do not fear. Their children will be ours anyway. Whatever nationality the prancing young bull is of the calf will be ours.
3) Forsaking the Civil Rights in the sake of children.
4. 57. By helping such Russians you make a deposit into the assets of our Jewish community. From now on their salary is our national income. In the sake of their children they would loose their civil rights, feelings and mind. And anyway they would not be able to be antiSemitic. Cohabitation with a Jewish woman is one of the methods of attracting the talented Russians into the sphere of our influence and interests.
4) Working horse for Jews.
4. 58. Take beautiful and healthy Russian women as wives and let them bring us a healthy posterity, let them improve our species. So, for each promising Russian there should be a Jewish girlfriend or a friend. If every Russian will pull with himself though one Jew all of us will be set.
5) Buy Russia for trinkets and the brew.
4. 59. Give them bribes, give them gifts, give them cognac and vodka or, even better, give them the governmental alcohol for technical purposes, instead, for drinking. For those trinkets and the brew they would sell everything including their Russia.
