Goldman, Pierre. DIM MEMORIES OF A POLISH JEW BORN IN FRANCE. New York: Viking, (1977.) Hardcover First Edition

First US printing. Goldman was born in France in 1944, near the end of World War II, of politically-radical parents who were active in the French underground. However, when his mother was expelled to Poland, the boy became a displaced person and petty criminal. At 25 he was arrested for a double-murder he did not commit but was convicted; he wrote his autobiography in prison, and the book created a sensation in France, where it was known as 'the Goldman Affair' and it won a retrial which exonerated him of the murder charges, although he still had to serve time for armed robbery. More than just an account of a miscarriage of justice, this is a picture of the contradictions of justice. Translated by Joan Pinkham. 230 pp. Very near fine in a like dustjacket (remainder line.) .ISBN # 0-670-272736
