About the Author
Gustaw Herling-Grudzinski was born in 1919 in Kielce, Poland. In 1940, he was captured by the Russians and spent two years in a Soviet labor camp. After WWII, he founded the Polish magazine "Kulture", which virtually sustained Polish culture during Communist rule. He settled finally in Naples, where he died in 2000.



Bertrand Russell (1872-1970) was born in England and educated at Trinity College, Cambridge. His long career established him as one of the most influential philosophers, mathematicians, and social reformers of the twentieth century.
