Andrea Graziosi writes:
Moshe (Misha) Lewin, one of the most powerful, original, and complex students of the USSR, died on August 14 in Paris, where he retired 3 years ago. He was born in Vilnius in 1921, and told part of the fascinating and tragic history of his life in an interview re-published in Visions of History (New York, Pantheon Books, 1983).
His many friends and élèves will remind him. Personally, I mourn the death of the person that made it possible for me to seriously study Soviet history, and will for ever remember his generosity and his often extraordinarily wise advices.
