This assertion by Michael Mills is extremely comical, and indicates utter ignorance of Soviet realities.The Soviet authorities considered it their duty to evacuate the Jews from a dangerous situation since they were the people from which Marx had originated, and furthermore the genius of Lenin was commonly attributed to his Jewish blood.
Anyway, here's what Ilja Altman has to say on the topic:
During the war and immediately after its end there were suppostions that the Soviet government took special steps for Jewish evacuation, but no documents confirming this version have been found. Problems of evacuation were dealt with by the Council for evacuation, created on June 24, which already on June 27 selected the groups of the civilians which were to undergo immediate evacuation (members of the families of qualified workers, Soviet, Party and military workers, NKVD members and their children). The realization of these measures in practice was only partial.
Only on September 26 in the Council for evacuation under SNK USSR was created the Department for evacuation of the population. Not a single of its orders concerned the evacuation of Jewish population. Researchers fairly note that the basis of this was not antisemitism, but preference for material goods which played a role in defence to human lives. This thesis fully corresponded to the views of Stalin and his immediate circle, which led to the fact that the civilian population on the occupied territory was practically abandoned to the whims of fate.
Nevertheless, until the end of 1941 more than 10,000,000 persons were evacuated, of them
from Moldavia - 250,000,
from Estonia - more than 50,000,
from Lithuania - 42,500.
Among the 2,500,000 evacuated whose nationality could have been established until the beginning of December 1941, Jews made up 669,229 persons (26,86%).
They took the second place after Russians among the evacuees. Although most of them were from Moscow and Leningrad, from where the evacuation proceeded better than anywhere else.
One cannot fail to notice the greater percent of the evacuated Jews than their percentage in the population. Since the special measures have not been taken, the explanation lies in potential victims' being in the know about the threat. This is in no way justifies the inaction (and sometimes obstacles) of the local officials (including the Jews) just before the occupation during the evacuation of the peaceful population because of "patriotic" or other reasons.
