Ippolit Iosifovich Lyutostansky
The Jews and Ritual Murders of Christian Babies
A theological and legal study
Contrary to the universally held and politically correct opinion, Jewish ritual murders are not an “anti-Semitic prejudice” or an “evil blood libel” which originated in the dark Middle Ages, but are quite real and have existed for about 1,000 years. Nor is it true that confessions to such murders were always extorted under torture. The fact is that the reality of Jewish ritual murders, perpetrated by religious fanatics from the sect of the Hasidim, has been repeatedly proven in modern trials using modern rules of evidence, as it happened so many times in the Russian Empire in the 19th and early 20th century, before this country succumbed to Judeo-Bolshevik tyranny in 1917.
Quite a rich literature on this subject, dating back to the pre-Bolshevik period, exists in the Russian language. Two very important studies, The Murder of Andrei Yushchinsky by G. G. Zamyslovsky (1917) and A Memorandum on Ritual Murders by V.I. Dal (1844), were recently translated into English by JRBooksOnline and are available through Lulu.com.
The present short book was written by I.I. Lyutostansky in 1911 following the ritual murder of Andrei Yushchinsky, a 13-year old boy, in Kiev. Brief information on this and other ritual murder cases – which occurred both in Russia and abroad – is presented here.
Ippolit Iosifovich Lyutostansky (1835-1915) was an authoritative expert on the Jewish question, who gained fame due to his two major studies, On the Use of Christian Blood by the Jews and The Talmud and the Jews, which consisted of many volumes and went through numerous editions. He was highly praised for his works and received many commendations from high-ranking persons in Russia, including Emperor Alexander III and Empress Maria Feodorovna, a brave woman later murdered by the vindictive Jewish Bolsheviks, together with her husband, Emperor Nicholas II, and all their children.
Nicholas II was particularly hated by the Jews for his role in the famous Beilis trial. Mendel Beilis was a Jew accused of murdering Andrei Yushchinsky, a 13-year-old boy, in March 1911 in Kiev. His trial took place in the autumn of 1913 and attracted wide attention both in the Russian Empire and abroad. Eventually, Beilis was acquitted by the jury, but the same verdict also said that the murder was a ritual one and was committed at a Jewish brick factory. Now, it is quite obvious that this trial could not have happened without Nicholas II’s will and involvement. Furthermore, the same Tsar, who wanted the evidence about Yushchinsky’s murder to be preserved, reportedly commissioned G.G. Zamyslovsky to write the above-mentioned book. In 1918, Nicolas II would die a martyr’s death, together with his entire family. Many decades later, they would be canonized by the Russian Orthodox Church, and since then they have been revered as martyrs.
After the Bolsheviks seized power in 1917, they destroyed all the copies of Lyutostansky’s books they could lay their hands on, as well as those written by other authors, including Dal and Zamyslovsky. Also, they reportedly hunted down and shot not only those who had read Lyutostansky’s books, but even those who had merely heard of them.
This brochure will become a valuable addition to the library of anyone interested in the Jewish question in general and Jewish ritual murders in particular. It is hoped by the editors that more books by this author will be published in English in the foreseeable future.
