About Walter Ciszek
Rev. Vladimir (Walter) Ciszek, S.J. (November 4, 1904–December 8, 1984) was a Polish-American Jesuit priest known for his missionary work in the Soviet Union between 1939 and 1963. Fifteen of these years were spent in confinement and hard labor in the Gulag, including five in Moscow’s infamous Lubyanka prison. He was released and returned to the United States in 1963, after which he wrote two books, including the memoir With God in Russia, and served as a spiritual director.
