Doctor's plot

The doctor's plot was an anti-Semitic campaign orchestrated by then-Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin where he implicated Jewish doctors in a conspiracy to assassinate various Soviet leaders, causing several Jews to be persecuted either through arrests or being shot on sight. Ironically, the doctor's plot and the elimination of most if not all of Moscow's best doctors is what precipitated Stalin's later death via a brain hemorrhage on March 5, 1953. The plot was ultimately undone by Nikita Khrushchev.

Despite it being a very clear form of anti-Semitism being conducted by the USSR, it is very rarely discussed in various historical circles especially among the left, largely due to the left falsely conflating anti-Semitism as a feature of right-wing politics due to the Nazis and their Holocaust (which were themselves falsely conflated with right-wing politics).
