They were the secretary of the All-Party Conference in August 1929 .
The first secretary of the Tomsk regional party committee, Yakov Mikhailovich Sverdlov, also worked at the Zeya Revolutionary Committee. In his memoirs, he wrote:
“Ya. M. Sverdlov, a young, athletic man, a miner, fifteen years old, was admitted to the Bolshevik Party after the first revolution. There were many Jews in the party at that time. Ya. M., like other members of the party, did not have a special education, but had rich practical experience. First of all, Y. Sverdlov drew attention to the fact that Tomsk at that moment was a completely exceptional phenomenon. The people, officially 90% religious, in reality were mostly religious.
In Tomsk there was a Jewish bank, a Jewish warehouse, Jewish optics, a Jewish midwifery school. In reality there were two Jewish doctors, seven or eight engineers, and altogether, they say, no less than twenty-five Jews.
On what funds did the party exist, how were membership dues paid? We were all in a state of terrible hunger. It is clear that the party was supposed to exist only on membership donations. For example, I don’t remember ever personally having to contribute party money in my life. I spent all my money on the needs of my family, on the workers, on the current needs of the revolutionary movement. I came to Tomsk after I left the Tomsk province, having passed through a dozen Siberian provinces, in order, firstly, to get acquainted with the actual situation of the Jews in this province, and, secondly, to get acquainted with the conditions of work in the party, which I found completely unsatisfactory.
During my two years of work at the Zeya Party Conference, I became acquainted with many workers in practical terms. They told me about their life and situation.
Ya.M. Sverdlov made his memorandums to the Central Committee and to the Regional Party Conference. I showed them, in particular, a note “On the food situation in the Tomsk province.” I thoroughly acquainted the delegates with the situation and the existing practice of work in Tomsk.
It was only after all this that a turning point in the work of the conference evidently occurred. The witty resolution of the conference entitled “On the state of agriculture and food production in the Tomsk province” was adopted in the Tomsk party bureau. Here they expressed their opinions and, among other things, made presentation notes on how the Tomsk province can help the starving not only in Siberia, but also in the Volga region
