AT THE END OF WORLD WAR II, 3 million Jews were trapped inside the 
Soviet Union. They lived a paradox ­ unwanted by a repressive 
Stalinist state yet forbidden to leave. When They Come for Us, We'll 
Be Gone: The Epic Struggle to Save Soviet Jewry is the astonishing 
and inspiring story of their rescue. Author Gal Beckerman will talk 
about the Soviet Jewry movement as a story of redemption, both for 
the Soviet Jews and for the Americans who fought for their freedom. 
He will discuss the struggle's long-term impact on both American and 
Soviet Jews.

GAL BECKERMAN is a reporter at the Forward. He was a longtime editor 
and staff writer at the Columbia Journalism Review and also has 
written for The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe 
and The Wall Street Journal, among other publications. He was a 
fellow at the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in Berlin and the 
recipient of a Pulitzer Traveling Fellowship from the Columbia 
Graduate School of Journalism. When They Come for Us, We'll Be Gone 
(Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2010) is his first book.
