Book by Elie Wiesel
  • Ddilonyne
An inspirational story of how all Jews, whether in Russia, Israel, the United States or elsewhere are connected. This book eventually gave rise to the Soviet Jewish freedom movement 10 years later. A must read for anyone who wants to understand the condition and plight of Soviet Jewery in the 1960s.
  • Gavirgas
Very accurate biography.

Since my two visits to the Jewish Autonomous Region of Eastern Russia in 2008 I have had laid on my heart questions of why and how Stalin forced the Jewish people there and the way in which their population during my visit to the region had diminished to 2%. In Elie Wiesel's moving description of the fear surrounding a one night celebration of Simchat Torah in Moscow in 1965 and again in 1966 I was brought to tears with the youth coming together in a sea of commonality and the need to congregate. A need to worship that in the Western World pales in comparison.
  • Fog
very concise and well written .Quite amazing how he was able to meet with the various people who even though they were scared still wanted to talk
  • Uickabrod
As powerful as when I first read it.

This book, is a classic testament to the brutal persecution of Jews in the Soviet Union during the dark days of Communist opression.
With both poetic and potent eloquency Wiesel describes the atmosphere of fear and silence, that reigned among Soviet Jewry during the 1960's when this book was written. The attempts to force Jews to abandon their faith and identity, and to cut ties with their brothers and sisters in Israel, by the malignant and brutal Communist tyrants. then there was the daily disparagement of the State of Israel and the maligning of Zionism by the State Media (something we see in may countries around the world today).
Indeed even though Communist tyranny in Russia has collapsed, the crusade of hate by the Left, formulated by Soviet propagandists has only got more vicious and irascible, in recent years.
In South Africa, for example, a hard-core Stalinist Cabinet Minister, (of Jewish descent) trained and educated in the old Soviet Union, daily comes up with venomous and ruthless attacks on the Jewish State and it's supporters, and is directing a campaign of ethnic hatred against Israel and it's Jews.
But the Jews of the Soviet Union refused to forget who they were, or to give up their faith or their love for the State of Israel.
Reffering to the violent anti-Israel propaganda formulated in the Soviet Union, the author explains : "The purpose of such propaganda is to make Israel seem hateful to the general populace but to the Jews as well, to undermine the esteem in which they hold the Jewish state, and to convince them finally to relinquish an idea which has failed, a vision of redemption which has somehow been made profane..."
But this form of psychological warfare, directed against the Jewish dream, and designed to divide Jews of the diaspora from their own people in Israel, failed in Russia.
Jews all over the world need to reject it, wherever it raises it's ugly head.
As Wiesel describes 'there are Jews who will under no circumstances let themselves be severed from their people'.

This report by Elie Weisel on the Jews of Silence helped increase greatly Western interest in the Russian Jewish community. It helped rally the Jewish world in support of the emigration movement. And eventually it helped in the liberation of the Soviet Jews from their prison. Over one million were to come to Israel in the decades ahead.

It is rare that a book has so much influence. A courageous witness like Elie Weisel deserves great credit for this historical ' miracle'.
Since my 2 visits to Russia in 2008 I've wanted to know more about the Jewish exodus and specifically the Jewish Autonomous Region in Eastern Russia. Glad I found this book.
