Slánský, Rudolf

(1901–52)
   Czech Communist politician. Slánský was secretary-general of the Czech Communist Party after World War II. He was of Jewish origin but had no other connection with Judaism or the Jewish community. In 1952 he was the central figure in a great Stalinist show trial in which he was accused of Trotskyist-Titoist-Zionist heresies and plots. He was found guilty and executed. Simultaneously, hundreds of Czech Jews were arrested and two visiting Israelis were sentenced to long terms of prison, but were later released.
