Memoir of Salomon Leder

Grant for the KARTA Center Foundation for publishing the memoir of the Lviv attorney Salomon Leder

The KARTA Center Foundation is working with the Jewish Historical Institute to publish the little-known memoir of the Lviv attorney Salomon Leder, which he wrote while in Israel in 1959–60. The memoir, which covers the period 1939–49, deals with the Soviet occupation of Lviv, the author’s arrest and imprisonment by the Soviets, his role in creating the Anders’ Army in the Soviet Union during World War II, his exile to a labor camp, his fight for repatriation to Poland, and his emigration to Israel.
