About the Author

Maria Joffe was the widow of Adolf Joffe, a leading Bolshevik and early Soviet diplomat. Her husband, a close friend of Leon Trotsky and a member of the Left Opposition, committed suicide in 1927 in protest over Trotsky's expulsion from the Communist Party.

Maria Joffe, a journalist, had joined the Bolshevik Party in 1917 and married Adolf in 1918. They had one son together. At a party meeting in 1929 she objected to Trotsky's expulsion from the Soviet Union. She was then arrested and sent to a prison camp in Siberia — where she survived 29 years of imprisonment — from 1929 to 1957. Her son was murdered in the camps at age 17. During the Thaw that took place under the leadership of Nikita Khrushchev, when the Communist Party made certain revelations about Stalin's crimes and the extermination of the leaders of the Bolshevik Party, Maria Joffe was partly rehabilitated. She moved to Israel in 1975. Her memoirs of her arrest and imprisonment, One Long Night: A Tale of Truth, were published in English by New Park Publications in 1978.
