comment What explanations have been given as to why the Jews were not killed in Italy?
@Felix Goldberg I do not know about any connotations, but Wikipedia says: "The group initially praised Mussolini for his anti-communism and fascist principles, leading it to adopt the black uniform shirt of Italian fascism for a short period." en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Betar In shot, they considered themselves Jewish black shirts, sharing views with Italian fascist black-shirt organizations.

The camp you are referring to was controlled by the SS, not by Italian government.

@Jim Thio even more: Italy was concerned about Germany's treatment of the Jews and suggested Red Cross inspections into German camps.

@Jim Thio Italy declared war against Germany in 1943 after Mussolini was disposed.

comment Why was Stalin so opposed to genetics?
@Felix Goldberg to start off, you do not know whether they poisoned him. This is a quote from Zbarsky memoirs: "..В 1940 году он [Кольцов] неожиданно умер - считается, что от инфаркта, но я хорошо помню, как говорили, что он отравился ветчиной. Весьма вероятно, что смерть его была не случайной". "I remember that people said that he was poisioned by ham" Of course in the Western propaganda it became "Zbarsky discovered that he was poisioned by NKVD"

comment How did the Chinese Self-Criticism work in practice?
@MichaelF in that case you possibly looking for something non-existent, nobody ever is required to confess something they did not do except when the interrogators consciously persecute a non-guilty under pretext that he or she hides his guilt.

How mathematical logic is related to self-criticism? Garbage.

Poisioning by NKVD is not likely at all for many reasons. One of them is that Stalin did not hardly support the "Lysenko line" at the time (at least before 1948 many anti-Lysenkoists still remained in their positions), also NKVD could much more easy arrest him, why to poison?
