Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Genrikh Samoilovich Lyushkov (1900 - August 19, 1945) was an officer in the Soviet secret police and its highest-ranking defector. Lyushkov was born in Odessa, the son of a Jewish tailor. Beginning in November 1920 he joined the Cheka of Odessa which was known for its ruthlessness. He served in what eventually became the NKVD in various parts of the Soviet Union, and also carried out an industrial espionage assignment in Germany in the 1930s involving the Junkers aviation company, which brought him Stalin's favor. His final posting was as NKVD boss of the Russian Far East on July 31, 1937.show more
