Freedom in the Face of Tyranny: A Conversation with Natan Sharansky and Gil Troy

The story of Soviet Jewry is one the great tales of exodus and redemption in our time. Israeli politician, author, and human rights activist Natan Sharansky and award-winning American presidential historian Gil Troy join JRB editor Abe Socher to discuss their new book, Never Alone: Prison, Politics, and My People. We discussed a Seder in Russia, the Kotel controversy, and more from Sharansky’s years as a refusenik, his political battles, and his urgent critique of contemporary American Jewish life.
