Admin History/Bio
Lev Elbert was a construction engineer from Kiev. He and his wife Inna, a cardiologist, were active in promoting the Hebrew language in Kiev and were also fluent in English. His case garnered international attention when he went on a hunger strike and threatened suicide over his treatment during incarceration in Siberia in 1983, on draft evasion charges. Charges of drug smuggling were fabricated by prison authorities against Lev while he was in prison and he was subsequently held in isolation with violent inmates. In 1988 he emigrated to Israel with his family where he eventually became director of the Department of Construction of Power Stations for the Israel Electric Company.
