  Doctors' plot
The Doctors' plot (Russian language: дело врачей, врачи-вредители; or врачи-убийцы) was an alleged conspiracy to eliminate the leadership of the Soviet Union.
The scenario of the "Doctors' plot" was reminiscent of the previous Stalin purges of the late 1930s, and the plan to deport the whole population based on its ethnicity resembled previous deportations (see Population transfer in the Soviet Union).
The "Doctors' plot" was another attempt to hinder growing national awareness of the Soviet Jews and break the ties beetwen the Soviet and World Jewry under false pretense of anti-Zionism.

 Stalin's Last Crime : The Plot Against the Jewish Doctors, 1948-1953 (Jonathan Brent, et al)
The Doctor's Plot was a conspiracy fabricated by Soviet security organizations purporting to show an organized effort to undermine the Soviet State by destroying its leadership via negligent or murderous medical care.
The Plot was viewed previously as an irrational and relatively (compared to the great purges, executions, and deportations of the 20s and 30s) minor aspect of Stalinist state terror.
The authors also place the Plot in the context of other important Stalinist campaigns of the period, notably the anti-Semitic actions that preceded and are to some extent coincident with the events of the Doctors' Plot.

The present article is devoted to the events that came in the wake of the January 13, 1953 publication of the TASS report on the discovery of a doctors' plot in the Kremlin, with Jews forming the majority of the plotters (1).
That was the role assigned to the "doctors' affair".
At a Minsk automobile factory, the workers were saying that the Jewish doctors, acting "at the bidding" of American and British fascists, had been deliberately murdering those they were supposed to heal, and that history knew no killing techniques as devious as those applied by the "subhuman fiends" to their patients.

 Stalin's Last Crime: The Plot Against the Jewish Doctors, 1948-1953 -- book review
Of the various purges and plots planned by him, the last perhaps was the dyelo vrachey or the Doctors’ Plot.
This preplanned conspiracy against the top Jewish doctors of the Soviet Union was aimed to “show” that Jews in the highest positions of power were spies in the USSR and were being used in a grand plan by the enemies of socialism to destroy the Soviet state.
To guide readers to understand the Doctors’ plot, the authors begin with the system of governance in the USSR where all power was vested in the state -- and Stalin, at the apex, had absolute power.

A month later, Pravda announced that the doctors were innocent and had been released from prison.
In accusing the Jewish doctors of being poisoners, Stalin was, of course, reviving a libel that was common among medieval anti-Semites.
While one would think that all Jews would have breathed an enormous sigh of relief upon Stalin's death, there was no shortage of Russian Jews who shared in the country's paroxysm of grief.

Despite the state's exoneration of the doctors immediately after Stalin's death, persistent anti-Semitism in the Soviet Union contributed to the emigration of hundreds of thousands of Jews, including many doctors, in subsequent decades
Stalin's hatred of Jews and of Jewish doctors in particular did not appear in a vacuum.
In the end, Stalin's plot failed for one reason only: he died before completing the mission.

 Patients suffer as Punjab doctors plot next move- The Times of India   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
CHANDIGARH: Patients are the worst-affected as doctors working in the government hospitals in Punjab gear up for a protracted agitation against the abolition of the non-practising allowance besides individually working out modalities of setting up private practice as the government has not budged on the NPA issue.
The total revenue saved on account of abolition of NPA may be disputed from Rs three crore to Rs 40 crore but the doctors concede that their salaries would be slashed by Rs 5,000-8,000 per month if NPA is withdrawn.
Many senior doctors who have already put in over 25 years in service are facing yet another dilemma, whether to put in papers, enjoy benefits of pension and start private practise or continue in service, set up private practise and desert the job only after their private practise booms.

 Stalin and the Jews
Along with the purges went a pogrom directed at a group of Soviet doctors, many of them Jewish, as a pretext for wholesale deportation, and yet another effort at mass murder, of the Jews.
The episode, known as "the Doctors' Plot," represented the last convulsion of Stalinism in its most extreme, pathological form.
The Doctors' Plot became his most powerful weapon in the last years of his life in pursuing this end; it starkly demonstrates that Stalin's power did not derive from the state and its institutions but from the underlying system that allowed him to manipulate them."

Brent and Naumov link Stalin's famously anti-Semitic "Doctors ' Plot," in which Jewish doctors were unjustly accused of conspiring to murder important politicians, to the ridiculous "plan of the internal blow," another alleged conspiracy of officials supposedly aiding an American plan to nuke the Kremlin itself.
The authors argue that these Stalin-engineered plots were to be used by the paranoid dictator as justification for nuclear war.
Yet although the Gulag and the terror campaign that supplied the bodies for its proliferation was most pronounced both before and during the Second World War, it was after the war that the extent of his murder and mayhem reached it horrific peak.

At the worst moment, a plot was called off because a lone bomber tried to kill Hitler himself, after which security circumstances surrounding the Fuehrer became almost impossible.
Another dictator who feared assassination was Stalin: the Jewish Doctors' Plot {NPR audio story} was the last paroxysm of his rule.
But Soviet archives suggest that though the doctors were, as history has largely judged, innocent, Stalin may indeed have been felled by poisoning arranged by Beria, as part of a vicious power struggle with the Khrushchev faction, or at a time of unity in fear of a nuclear war with the West.

These arrests were spurred by the "doctors' plot," a supposed conspiracy among Jewish doctors to kill members of the government and destroy the U.S.S.R. at the behest of the Americans.
Brent, the editorial director of Yale University Press, and Naumov, executive secretary of Russia's Presidential Commission for the Rehabilitation of Repressed Persons, trace how Stalin himself put together false evidence of the "doctors' plot," which was far more than a simple exercise in anti-Semitism and paranoid senility.
One of the reasons for his great care, the book contends, is that the popular mood had subtly shifted in the postwar era; revolutionary fervor had died down, there was a desire for legal legitimacy and, in contrast to their 1930s counterparts, top bureaucrats were loath to convict without evidence.
