The 13th volume of the Archive of Jewish History includes selected chapters from the memoirs of Boris Gershun, a prominent lawyer in the early 20th century; memoirs of Anna Shoichet, whose "autobiography" covers the first half of the last century; and memoirs by Gennady and Elena Estraikh about their attempts to emigrate from the USSR beginning in the late 1970s. The attempts ended successfully in the early 1990s. The research section includes articles about one of the little-known members of the famous clan of Barons Ginzburg - Alfred, son of Horace and about Savely Zlatopolsky. Alfred Ginzburg was the manager of the Lena gold mines and made a significant contribution to the development of the Russian gold mining industry, and, of course, to the welfare of the family. The article about Savely Zlatopolsky, a member of the Executive Committee of the People's Will Party, is essentially the first study of this prominent figure of the revolutionary movement. Zlatopolsky's testimony during the investigation and letters from detention are published as an appendix to the article. The volume concludes with the publication of letters from the Stalin’s camp of the famous folklorist and musicologist Moisei Beregovsky, and a transcript of an interview with Boris Kamenko, who miraculously survived the Holocaust in the Stavropol region. All other members of his family were shot by the Nazis. The materials published in this volume are derived from archives in Moscow, St. Petersburg, and New York, as well as from family archives.
