Telling the tale of Pauker's adolescence in an more and more anti-Semitic surroundings, her dedication to a progressive profession, and her upward push within the Romanian Communist flow, Levy makes no try to whitewash Pauker's lifestyles and activities, yet really explores each contour of the complex character he came upon expressed in lots of newly available archival documents.
