Summary "From Exodus to Freedom: A History of the Soviet Jewry Movement tells of one of the most impressive struggles for freedom in modern history - the exodus of one and a half million Jews who left the Soviet Union from 1987 to 1992, during the time of the collapse of the Soviet empire. This well-documented account of this remarkable movement, the strategies of the Israeli and American Jewish establishment, as well as the Union of Councils for Soviet Jews, shows the power of ordinary citizens to promote human rights and freedom anywhere in the world."--BOOK JACKET.
