about

Born 1902 in Warsaw and a law student in Warsaw and Paris, author Jerzy Gliksman became active in the Bund’s youth organization and in its political party in 1917, eventually becoming a member of the Bund’s Central Committee. He was voted in as one of the Bund’s councilmen in Warsaw during the elections for city council. His brother Viktor, also a Bundist, was arrested and executed by the Soviet authorities and, in 1939 and 1940, Gliksman was also arrested and imprisoned by the Soviet authorities. In 1943, following the Warsaw ghetto uprising and the suicide of Shmuel Arthur Zygelbojm, Gliksman initiated a large demonstration on behalf of the millions of Jews who had already been murdered. He emigrated to the United States in 1946, where he died in 1958.

This fascinating book, one of the first of its kind, tells of the awful, inhuman Gulag system in the USSR which was widely unknown beyond the “Iron Curtain”.
