This chapter focuses on the return of Ana Pauker's brother Zalman Rabinsohn to Romania in 1949, which it suggests is another puzzle in the story of Jewish emigration and the Zionist question. It explains Rabinsohn's motivations for returning to Romania and discusses his political views and influence on Pauker's decision to block an anti-Zionist show trial. The chapter highlights Rabinsohn's statement that Pauker had already formulated her position on the issues of Jewish emigration and the Zionist question even before he returned to Romania.
