"During the past month-and-
a-half, I received many dozens of
injections of all types of vitamins,
my heart became much better
thanks to medicine. But what was
specially important was the food
— I gained almost 10 kilos (22
pounds). So the packaging is
much better now."
The first hint that something
unusual was afoot came at 11 on
Monday morning last week — the
day before his release — when
Anatoly Shcharansky was sitting
in his cell reading a work by the
German writer Schiller.
- "I was suddenly taken from the
cell. All my prison clothes were
removed and they gave me civi-
lian clothes. I understood then
that something extraordinary
was being prepared. Then I was
taken to the airport accompanied
by four KGB men and we flew
from Perm (where his labor camp
was sited) to Moscow.
"Then, when we took off from
Moscow I understood that some-
thing very pleasant was in store:
Judging from the sun, I could tell
that our direction was west."
"After about two hours, I con-
cluded we must be near the Soviet
border and I demanded to know
what was happening.
"Finally, one of the KGB men
announced that he had the
authority to declare that the Sup-
reme Soviet of the Soviet Union
had deprived me of my Soviet citi-
zenship for my very bad behavior
— for 'behavior undermining the
honor of Soviet citizenship' — and
that as an American spy I was
being expelled from the Soviet
"I made a statement in re-
sponse. Firstly, I said that I was
deeply satisfied that 13 years
after asking to be deprived of
Soviet citizenship, my demand
was being met. Secondly, I re-
peated that my activities as a
Jewish activist had nothing to do
with espionage or any other
crimes of which I was accused."
Still, the KGB guards refused to
tell him where they were heading,
but soon after the plane landed, he
noticed a sign that indicated they
were in East Germany.
"That was a little disappointing
because I realized I would not be
seeing Avital immediately. When
the the plane stopped, one of the
KGB men said, 'We have a last
request to you. Over there is a car.
Please go directly to it because we
