by Krausz, Peter, ed
Tel Aviv: Israel Women for Ida Nudel. Near Fine. 1981 (c.1980). 2nd printing. Wraps. [minor handling wear, a couple of stress lines in rear cover next to spine]. (B&W photographs) A translated condensation of interviews conducted by Tal Hammel (who began the activity as a high school project in Israel in 1980), which ultimately came to serve as "a moving record of oral contemporary history which documented the incredible contribution made by Ida Nudel to the renascent Jewish national movement in the Soviet Union." Repeatedly denied an exit visa throughout the 1970s and thus unable to join her family in Israel, Ida Nudel became known as the "Guardian Angel" of Soviet Jewish prisoners of conscience and their families; she was herself sent into exile in Siberia in 1978. (Her then-current address is given at the end of the book's introduction; in this copy, it has been altered by hand to a Moscow address.) She was released from her Siberian exile in 1982, and a subsequent international campaign (involving Jane Fonda, Liv Ullman, and others) resulted in her being granted her long-sought exit visa. Arriving in Israel in October 1987, she was greeted as a heroine by high government officials, and later published a best-selling autobiography. . (Inventory #: 15992)
