1 Review

The Last Exodus is recognized as the finest study yet written of the Jewish dissident movement in the Soviet Union. The author explains how and why a Soviet Jewish underground came into existence, who has led it, what techniques it has used, and how it has grown and spread in a country where only a few years ago such defiance would have been viewed as impossible.

Very descriptive and captive history of an unimaginable era, where a people completed amazing acts of courage.
