The same B'nai B'rith publication states as to Jewry in Russia:
"As for the part of Jewry which was united politically as Jewish, it grouped itself in the only mass-like Jewish party, the Bund. The Bund as well as the Zionists have been persecuted by Bolshevism from the first days of the October upheaval of 1917 to the present day ..." (Article 5, p.30)
The Jews' own authorities refute these false statements, [page 74] however, and show the active participation of the Bund in the Russian Red Revolutions, and the Red regime which followed.

Note, for example, the official New York Jewish Communal Register report concerning the Central Verband of the Bund Organizations of America, and its purpose to aid the "Jewish Socialist Bund in Russia." The same publication reveals (see Exhibit 242) Bund support of the then completed Bolshevik Red Revolution in Russia, stating:
Since the Russian Revolution in 1917, the Central Verband of the Bund has been active in collecting funds to assist the Russian Bund in its work against counterrevolution forces and against the agitation by the Black Hundred for massacre of the Jews.
Pages 1256-61 of the same Kehilla report, not reproduced here, tell how the Russian Bund in this country formed the Jewish Socialist Federation of America, and was foremost in organizing the 1915 National Workmen's Committee of radicals, representing: "a total membership of half a million Jewish workmen . representative of all radical wings." (page 1448 of same, See Exhibit 239)
A net of Bund branches was spread throughout the United States and Canada. For a number of years these branches, whose primary object was to collect funds for the Bund in Russia, were the most active and influential bodies in the Jewish radical world. Their members formed the vanguard of the Workmen s Circle and swelled the ranks of the Jewish trade unions. The activities of the branches were coordinated and supervised by a Central Verband (page 1257 same report, not reproduced here)
The falsity of the alleged "persecution" of the Bund is best described in the 1943 Universal Jewish Encyclopedia (under "Bund"):
After the revolution of March, 1917, the Bund grew rapidly It succeeded in electing 300 of its candidates to city councils and 515 to Jewish community boards The Bolshevik revolution in October of the same year led to sharp conflict of opinion within the Bund. Certain groups immediately joined the Communist Party; others formed separate Communist Bunds (Kombund) for a time, but soon after joined the Communist Party as well. The members who remained in the party decided at their 11th convention (1919) to favor a Soviet form of government A year later the majority of the party had adopted the Communist platform and shortly afterwards were ready to liquidate the Bund itself and join the Communist Party. The conflicts reduced the Bund to a fraction of its former size.
It is further stated that what was left of the Bund ceased to exist in 1920.
