Tsentrizdat was established in 1924 to consolidate East and West publishing divisions into one entity. With a focus on literature, political, scientific and educational information in the national languages of the USSR, it had offices throughout the Soviet republics and autonomous regions. Tsentrizdat was dissolved in 1931 when the USSR centralized its printing and publishing industries.
OZET was The Society for the Land Settlement of Working Jews in the USSR, (A.K.A. Jewish Toilers on the Land), and it was created in 1925. Its chief responsibility was to aid in the settlement of Jewish citizens on agriculture lands in the Soviet Union. While OZET was primarily an independent organization, it was linked to the government-formed KOMZET, the commission tasked with settling Jewish citizens. Not all settlers in the OZET/KOMZET program were Soviet citizens, however.
