Historian Sarah Gordon:
Gordon, Sarah (1984). Hitler, Germans and the "Jewish Question". page 23. https://books.google.com/books?id=K2pVl ... 22&f=falseThe prominence of Jews in the revolution and early Weimar Republic is indisputable, and this was a very serious contributing cause for increased anti-Semitism in post-war years. It is clear then that the stereotype of Jews as socialists and communists led many Germans to distrust the Jewish minority as a whole and to brand Jews as enemies of the German nation.
According to Encyclopaedia Judaica:
Binyamin Eliav. (2007) "Communism". Encyclopedia Judaica. 2nd ed., vol 5. pg 91. http://web.archive.org/web/201909071900 ... oh-Doz.pdfIn some countries Jews became the leading element in the legal and illegal Communist parties and in some cases were even instructed by the Communist International to change their Jewish-sounding names and pose as non-Jews, in order not to confirm right-wing propaganda that presented Communism as an alien, Jewish conspiracy.
