Translation by Paul Goldberg

Anatoly Marchenko was a working class Soviet dissident, who died for his beliefs at the hands of the Soviet state. Born to a provincial railway worker's family in Siberia, Marchenko experienced a brutish upbringing. Driven by a passionate desire to expose the seamy underside of Soviet society, he became a human-rights activist, and began his epic battle with the Soviet authorities.
