(p.1) Introduction
Ana Pauker

Robert Levy

University of California Press

This introductory chapter explains the coverage of this book, which is about the life and career of Ana Pauker, Romania's foreign minister from 1947 to 1952. It explains that while Pauker has become a mythic figure symbolizing the perceived predominance of Jews in Romanian Communism, she is largely absent from Jewish historiography. This study is based on the premise that Pauker's story and that of Jewish Communists is an important part not only of Communist and Romanian history but of contemporary Jewish history.

Keywords:   Ana Pauker, foreign minister, Romania, Jews, mythic figure, Romanian Communism, Jewish historiography, Jewish Communists
