This chapter examines the political persecution of a prominent New York doctor, Edward Barsky, during his encounter with McCarthyism. Because of his refusal to surrender to the House Committee on Un-American Activities the records of the Joint Anti-Fascist Refugee Committee, which chaired and which grew out of his experiences in the Spanish civil war, Barsky was jailed and, subsequently, lost his licence to practice medicine.
