Download Ana Pauker: The Rise and Fall of a Jewish Communist by Robert Levy PDF

By Robert Levy

Ana Pauker, while she is remembered in any respect, is considered the puppet of Soviet communism in Romania, blindly implementing the main brutal and repressive Stalinist regime. Robert Levy's new biography alterations the image dramatically, revealing a girl of exceptional energy, ruled by means of clash and contradiction way over by means of dogmatism. Telling the tale of Pauker's adolescence in an more and more anti-Semitic atmosphere, her dedication to a innovative occupation, and her upward thrust within the Romanian Communist circulation, Levy makes no try and whitewash Pauker's lifestyles and activities, yet really explores each contour of the complex personality he discovered expressed in lots of newly available archival records.
