A Hand in the Darkness: The Autobiography of a Refusenik
A Hand in the Darkness: The Autobiography of a Refusenik
Our Price: $13.99
Author: Ida Nudel
Format: Softcover

Product Code: 14773

Nudel's earliest memories are of World War II: her father fighting in the Soviet army, the notification of his death, and being uprooted from her Moscow home with her mother and sister. Her later life was that of a typical educated Soviet with little interest in politics until she acquired a radio and began to listen to the Voice of Israel broadcasts. Realizing a drive to live in Israel, Nudel and her family applied for exit visas, but she was refused. The KGB harassed her, once imprisoning her for a few weeks. Her detention increased her awareness of the Jewish political prisoners held in Soviet jails, and she began her efforts to aid them and their families. This autobiography details Nudel's work and creates a sympathy in readers for the refuseniks in the Soviet society.
