«Extra tickets» still have to get it, and for that Sharansky with friends has developed a system of «interception». «We were blocked all the way to Moscow from metro, bus stops and pedestrian crossings: it gave confidence that every «extra ticket» will fall into the hands it to us,» he says.

When Lyubimov was expelled from the USSR, Sharansky was among those who helped the Director to settle in Israel, where he was in 1986, after participating in the movement of Jewish refuseniks, court and ten years in Soviet prisons.

«After human rights, prisons and the victory of the liberation, I had the opportunity to help Yuri Lyubimov in Israel, I was glad to somehow thank him. With Teddy the Cripple, the legendary mayor of Jerusalem, we were able to provide homeless at the time the family Lyubimova a modest but Jerusalem apartment,» he said.

«It helped him through a difficult period of transition, and not being distracted by domestic issues, continue to think and create,» wrote Sharansky, who in his current position he oversees Jewish immigration, and Diaspora relations with Israel.

In Israel Lyubimov has lived for several years, being engaged in teaching and working as a guest Director with the main theatre «Habima».

«Meeting times in later years and George and his devoted wife Kate in Jerusalem and Moscow, I could not help admiring his creative energy and independent character. The last time we met in my office in Jerusalem in just a few months before his death,» — says Sharansky.

«And again he surprised and impressed me: it seemed that neither years nor test was not able to change something in it, but on the contrary, only strengthened his charisma, perseverance, and freedom of thought» — he wrote.

The memory of the last meeting of Anatoly Sharansky left the with Lyubimov in the background hanging in his office a large portrait of Soviet academician and human rights activist Andrei Sakharov.
