(Archive of the Jewish Aliya Movement in the USSR)

The Russian language site contains fascinating articles, photographs, interviews, and recollections of Zionists and refusniks from the USSR who, in spite of the difficulties and struggles, eventually immigrated to Israel. The section, “Prisoners of Zion, covers the timeframe 1941-1986, offering short biographies of the Jewish individuals from throughout the USSR who were often arrested, imprisoned, or exiled for their beliefs.
