This article was printed in the "Holocaust and Genocide Studies" Volume 12, Number 2, Fall 1998 and is available online from the pay site of the Oxford Journal http://hgs.oxfordjournals.org/content/12/2/308.abstract.

I was not allowed to copy the original article here, however, a translation to Russian is available in full. Following is the abstract:

This article examines the Jewish experience during the Soviet occupation of Estonia. While the Soviets eliminated certain legal and social restrictions on the Jews, the latter suffered at least as much as other nationalities from Soviet repression. Nevertheless, many Estonians' perception of a special relationship between the Jews and the Soviet regime induced some Estonians to regard Nazi genocide with indifference or sympathy, and others to collaborate in the elimination of Estonia's Jews.
