About this Item

[6], 267, [3] p.; 24 cm. Notes. First published in 1976 under title: Un procès "ordinaire" en U.R.S.S. From Wikipedia: "Stern was born in a Jewish family in a small Ukrainian town of Zhmerynka. In 1944 he received his doctor degree, and in 1947 organized in Chernovtsy the first endocrinological center in Ukraine. In 1952 he moved to Vinnitsa. In 1974, after his sons, Viktor (born 1941) and August (born 1945), applied for asylum in Israel, Stern was questioned at the Vinnitsa visa office and his flat was searched. Two weeks later he was arrested and in December sentenced to eight years of hard labor in Kharkiv. In 1976, August published a transcript of his father's trial, which was the first time the transcript of a dissident trial was leaked to the public The transcript revealed various inconsistencies, implying that the case was fabricated. In 1977, an international tribunal was organized in Stern's defense in Amsterdam. Stern was released a week before the opening of the tribunal." Very good in good dust jacket.

About this title


This transcript is the first tape recording of a Soviet trial ever to be smuggled out of Russia. It is one of the great documents of man's struggle against the violation of human rights. The fierce courtroom drama unfolds the story of a great Jewish doctor's implacable refusal to submit to the immense forces that the Soviet State marshalled against him. The contrast of personalities and interests. the basic decency of the judge who nevertheless has to submit to the government, the growing personal bravery of Dr. Stern in his heroic accusation of the very men accusing him, the brilliance of the defense, the villainy of the prosecution, the stubbornness of the peasants: all this is recreated in a book whose message is now being heard throughout the world.
