About the Event

Spanning  nearly three decades, Hidden Heroes gives an insider's view of the  modern-day exodus of Soviet Jews from the Soviet Union, a period of  Jewish history that has rarely been told and is in danger of being  forgotten. This deeply personal narrative explores the grassroots Soviet  Jewish emigration movement through the eyes of one of its indefatigable  leaders, focusing on the actions of heroic refuseniks in the Soviet  Union as well as courageous individuals in the West - described by Natan  Sharansky as the "army of students and housewives" who waged the battle  to free Soviet Jews. From Russia, Ukraine, and Lithuania to the distant  republics of Central Asia, refuseniks come to life, discovering their  identity, protesting on the streets, defending themselves in courtrooms,  defying jailers in their prison cells, and struggling to survive in  Siberian labor camps. This engrossing memoir tells the story of the  resistance and moral courage of men and women inside the Soviet Union  and of those in the West who relentlessly crusaded on their behalf.

About the author:
