Pierre Goldman, (Lyon, June 22, 1944 – September 20, 1979 in Paris) was a French left-wing intellectual who was convicted of several robberies and mysteriously assassinated. It has been suspected that the Grupos Antiterroristas de Liberación (GAL) death squad was involved in his murder. His half-brother Jean-Jacques Goldman is a popular French singer.
Pierre Goldman was born near the end of World War II, the illegitimate son of Alter Mojze Goldman and Janine Sochaczewska, who were active in the FTP-MOI Resistancemovement. After the liberation of France, his parents separated, and his father, in concert with a group of former FTP-MOI members, kidnapped him. Thereafter, he had only sporadic contacts with his mother, who returned to Poland. Foto Tomb of Pierre Goldman Coyau / Wikimedia Commons / CC-BY-SA-3.0

Pierre Goldman : l’assassinat
Pierre Goldman a été condamné pour meurtre, puis acquitté. Par la suite, le 20 septembre 1979, trois inconnus lui ont tiré dessus à bout portant, en plein Paris. Quelques jours plus tard, 15 000 personnes affluaient au Père-Lachaise. Parmi elles, ceux qui, avec lui, avaient rêvé de révolution durant les années 60 : Serge July, Régis Debray, Marc Kravetz, Alain Krivine, Bernard Kouchner, et bien d’autres personnalités. Né le 22 juin 1944, étudiant révolutionnaire à la Sorbonne, guérillero au Venezuela, écrivain en prison, Pierre Goldman avait, pour ceux qui l’ont connu ou simplement côtoyé, une personnalité hors du commun. Ses assassins n’ont jamais été retrouvés. Retour sur une affaire qui, en son temps, défraya la chronique.

The Jews in Poland-Lithuania and Russia: 1350 to the Present Day
YIVO Institute for Jewish Research
Antony Polonsky, Brandeis University
For centuries, Poland and Russia formed the heartland of the Jewish world. Until World War II, this area was home to over forty percent of world Jewry: nearly three and a half million Jews lived in Poland, and nearly three million more lived in the Soviet Union. Although the majority of American and European Jews originate from Eastern Europe, the history of this life and civilization is not well known, or has been reduced to a story of persecution and martyrdom. In his masterful three-volume history, ‘The Jews in Poland and Russia: 1350 to the Present Day’, Polonsky avoids sentimentalism and mythologizing, and provides a comprehensive and detailed account of this great civilization. From the towns and shtetls where Jews lived, to the emergence of Hasidism and the Haskalah movement, to the rise of Jewish urbanization, and Polish-Jewish relations during World War II, Polonsky’s book dispels myths about this culture, while demonstrating the importance of Poland and Russia as a great center of Jewish life.
