The Human Rights Movement in the Soviet Union: Its Sense and Its Meaning

About Pavel Litvinov

Pavel Litvinov is a Soviet intellectual, scientist, and dissident leader who was forced out of the Soviet Union for his activism in support of human rights and political prisoners. In 1974, he moved to the U.S. where he joined fellow dissident Valery Chalidze in publishing A Chronicle of Human Rights in the USSR, documenting political repression in that country. He is the grandson of Maxim Litvinov, Stalin’s foreign minister during the 1930s and Ambassador to the United States.
