A fascist leader in pre-war Poland, a hunter of Soviet guerillas during the war, a candidate for a speedy execution by an NKVD squad, he made a deal with Gereral Serov, Stalin's police chief, and not only saved his head but has achieved the unique position of a financial tycoon in the soviet empire."
