In this week's clip, from March 9, 1999, we hear Natan Sharansky describe his pre-Purim visit a month earlier to the offices of the old KGB and his nemesis, Yuri Andropov.
There, Andropov's successor – Vladimir Putin – showed the former Soviet dissident, then Israel's Minister of Industry and Trade – his KGB dossier - some 52 volumes of documents - including papers relating to his arrest and conviction in 1977 on charges of spying for the United States.
Sharansky delivered his remarks before a Reform Movement convention in Jerusalem.
