A discussion with the chairman of the Jewish Agency, ex-minister, and former prisoner of Zion.
Natan Sharansky is one of Israel's most celebrated public figures. He first rose to worldwide attention as a campaigner for human rights and Jewish emigration in the dark days of the Soviet Union. Imprisoned on fabricated spying charges, he survived a hunger strike and years in Soviet prison and labor camps until he was finally released in a prisoner exchange in 1986, events he recorded in his bestselling memoir "Fear No Evil." Since arriving in Israel, he has served as a government minister and is now chairman of the Jewish Agency. He will be signing copies of his books, available for purchase on the night.
