About The Book

These are the memoirs of Mykola Rudenko, poet, founder and leader of the Ukrainian Helsinki Group. His memoirs are interesting both from a historical viewpoint, as his life spans almost the entire Soviet period of Ukrainian history, and from a psychological angle, as the memoirs are a frank confession of one who became enamored of communist ideology as a youth but gradually rejected conformism and changed paths when it became apparent that reality was out of step with ideology. This led Rudenko, a former secretary of the party committee steering the Writers' Union of Ukraine, to enter the circle of dissidents and human–rights activists and eventually to suffer incarceration in Soviet concentration camps.
