"" is an important addition to the literature of Jewish experience and deepens our understanding of the human condition in the twentieth century. Wolf describes his Jewish childhood and youth in pre-war Poland, his escape from the Holocaust and subsequent medical service in the Soviet Army during World War II and the following decade, his distinguished career in psychiatry in post-Stalinist Soviet Russia, and his final years in Portland, Oregon, after his departure from the Soviet Union in 1992. Wolf's narrative skill and evocative personal insights, combined with Judson Rosengrant's judicious editing and annotation and elegant translation, provide the reader with direct access to a world that has seemingly ceased to exist, yet continues to resonate and inform our own lives in powerful ways."--Page 4 of cover."@en ;
