Chronicles the thirty-year international movement to free Soviet Jews. What started as a small grassroots movement bold enough to take on a Cold War superpower blossomed into an international human rights crusade that engaged the disempowered and world leaders alike. Activists on both sides of the Iron Curtain--many of whom survived punishment in Soviet Gulag labor camps--tell their stories.
