This chapter assesses a selection of materials from the archive of the Tsarist censorship office in Warsaw, carefully edited by Maria Prussak in 1994 and entitled The World under Control: A Selection of Materials from the Archive of the Russian Censor in Warsaw. This selection bears out the existence of the gaps in people's knowledge of the literature dealing with Jews in the Russian part of partitioned Poland up to the First World War. While it would have been expected that material dealing with Jews existed in the sections of the tsarist censorship office records that handled Hebrew and Yiddish publications and stage productions, it is quite unexpected to find such material in the section of the censorship office which dealt with materials in Polish. The selection by Prussak, understandably fragmentary, shows that even in this section it is possible to find interesting information and observations. The chapter then considers how the Russian censors applied various methods when dealing with literature about Jews.

Keywords:   Tsarist censorship office, Warsaw, Maria Prussak, Jews, Hebrew publications, Yiddish publication, Polish publications, Russian censors
