Late in 1963 a booklet published in Kiev in the Soviet Ukraine sparked a world-wide furore . Entitled "Judaism with out Embellishment" and written in Ukrainian by T.K. Kichko, the booklet became the centre of a debate on anti-Semitism in the USSR. The debate spread to most communist parties including the Communist Party of Australia, where it culminated in a small booklet endorsed in June 1965 by the Political Committee (now called the National Executive) of the CPA.
