Unbroken Spirit: A Heroic Story of Faith, Courage, and Survival
(Gefen Publishing, 2012)

Yosef Mendelevich, born in Latvia in 1947, was a leader of the Russian Jewish revival in the 1960s. Arrested in 1970 for attempting to hijack a Russian airplane to escape, he served 11 years in the Soviet gulag for his Jewish activism. Unbroken Spirit is the inspirational story of one man’s resistance against tyranny, and his daily struggle to retain his Jewishness and his humanity in a system built to extinguish both. Mendelevich lives in Israel.
