Elie Wiesel’s groundbreaking report from inside the Soviet Union: The book that ignited the firestorm in the West over three million Jews who were forbidden to live Jewish lives in the USSR and forbidden to leave it.

“While all religions survive precariously in the Soviet Union, Judaism struggles against singular oppression . . . Wiesel does not portray a self-pitying Soviet Jewry. Rather, he stresses the indomitable strength of their belief. His most moving images focus on the students, who by all laws of logic should have spiritually vanished into the mainstream of Mother Russia long ago.” —The Christian Science Monitor
