Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (1918-2008), Nobel-Prize-winning novelist, historian and critic of Communist totalitarianism:

"You must understand. The leading Bolsheviks who took over Russia were not Russians. They hated Russians. They hated Christians. Driven by ethnic hatred they tortured and slaughtered millions of Russians without a shred of human remorse. The October Revolution was not what you call in America the "Russian Revolution." It was an invasion and conquest over the Russian people. More of my countrymen suffered horrific crimes at their bloodstained hands than any people or nation ever suffered in the entirety of human history. It cannot be understated. Bolshevism was the greatest human slaughter of all time. The fact that most of the world is ignorant of this reality is proof that the global media itself is in the hands of the perpetrators."

Who is Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn referring to in this quote? Anyone know?

I always thought the Bolsheviks were Russians :confused:

The Bolsheviks were 'party first', above all else such as family, country and ethnicity.
Its the same as saying the Nazis killed millions of Germans.

There is some merit in Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's statement about the Bolsheviks not being purely Russian, as also stated by Nanfeishen.

Also, a quote from a Quora answer:

The Bolsheviks were a multi-ethnic movement, and being an ethnic Russian did not give a Bolshevik leader any advantage in rising to higher leadership positions. In fact, I once watched a movie on Tsar Nicholas II when an official of his secret police, the Ochrana was showing the Tsar pictures of the leading Bolsheviks. At one point, the Tsar asked the official: “Are there any Russians?”

The explanation of Stalin’s rise to the top has little to do with his Georgian ethnicity. When the Bolsheviks took power, no one thought of Stalin as an important leader. The Party organization was a mess, and Stalin had the reputation of being a good organizer. Lenin put him in charge of the Party Central Committee which was not even regarded as a particularly influential position at the time.

While the more famous Bolshevik leaders traveled around the country doing the important work, that is, making speeches, Stalin quietly strengthened his position within the Party apparatus. He quietly brought his allies to work in the Central Committee in Moscow, and quietly sent comrades he did not trust to work in the provinces. By the time the showdown came between Stalin and the big name Bolsheviks, Stalin was firmly in charge of the Party bureaucracy.
Lenin and the other leading Bolsheviks thought they had made a revolution. They did not realize that they had instead laid the foundations of a regime resting on a totalitarian ideology and a huge ideologized bureaucracy. Stalin understood this very well, and this helps to explain how succeeded in taking over, first the Party, and then the country.

Its curious that he would come up with that theory, I was of the understanding that it was the Jews who were placed in Gulags during that period of time.
Not a theory. It were Jews on the top of apparatus of oppression. And (to comment the other post) it started from the begining with the Lenin when he arrived in the train from Germany with comrades & a hudge amount of money. Stalin became a leader later.

If you want to oppress your own nation, you have to use 100% reliable people, so you use a social margin or local minorities. Jews are ideal in this role, as they maintain their own tradition and hate all other nations.

If you have ever doubts what I wrote, google for "operation bridge" or "operacja most" in Polish. It was an airplane "bridge" created in Poland in early 1970's or even starting as early as in 1988 for transfering these rats and their families to their new homeland. Most of them were involved in repressing Russian (and all member nations) and did afraid of being prossecuted when communism started to collapse.

Very recently president Putin when enquired about this big rat escape has answered smiling: What's a problem, we can take them back...

Of course Jews would support revolution against a regime - Tsarits - that had been responsible for various pogroms, forced settlements and restrictions on movement - Pale of Settlement. How do you expect any oppressed people to react?

However, their involvement in the Bolsheviks is greatly over-exaggerated and under Stalin's reign Jews were actually purged from the party during the Great Purge. - Jewish Bolshevism.

"Overrepresentation of a group in a political movement does not prove either that the movement was "dominated" by that group or that it primarily serves that group’s interests. The idea that communist oppression was somehow Jewish in nature is belied by the record of communist regimes in countries like China, North Korea, and Cambodia, where the Jewish presence was and is minuscule.
This is historical revisionism at its finest. Solzhenitsyn wants to shift the blame away from his own people to another group, absolving his people of the suffering they inflicted on their own.

Great Purge affected many Jews, it only confirms that Jews were in majority inside the regime apparatus, not that Jews were targeted specifically for being Jews. As they were in majority, they remained in majority after the purge. The regime needed screwless perpetrators and Jews were ideal for this purpose.

BTW, Do you know how many Jews were transfered from Russia during the operation "Bridge"?

The quoted text is a pure transgression and the attempt of of shifting responsibility from Jews. Solzhenitsyn just present the plain truth of the situation in the communists Russia. These are the facts confirmed by the Great Purge statistics and many other sources. You should rather say "thank you president Puting for not bringing these offenders to the Hague for committing crimes on our nation(s).

Victors right the history, whether true or not. The Bolsheviks were funded by New York Bankers.

Karl Marx was a Jew, and communism was a Jewish invention.
Rubbish. You should read more from the Rev Ian Paisley, the Loyalists politician. Communism, like American capitalism, is a plot by the Vatican, and Margaret Thatcher was a secret Jesuit.
