Andrei Sinyavsky worked for the Soviet Academy of Science’s Institute of World Literature and was also the leading literary critic for "Novyj Mir". He was renowned for his stimulating and anti-conformist essays on 20th century Russian poetry and literature. In the late Fifties, under the pseudonym Abram Terz, he began writing stories, short novels and fiercely satirical essays on the state of affairs in the Soviet Union, smuggling them out of the country for publication abroad. In 1966 he was discovered and tried in an infamous show trial along with his friend and "literary accomplice" Yuli Daniel. He was sentenced to 7 years’ hard labour in a maximum security camp. In 1973 he was allowed to leave the country and he settled in Paris, where he taught for many years at the Sorbonne. His books include: A Voice from the Chorus, Goodnight!, Ivan the Fool.

Righteous Encyclopedia - Gulag

Those who chose to oppose Soviet totalitarianism did not risk their lives to save other human beings, but to save first of all themselves and their own dignity, not to become an active part of the machinery of evil.
