In the Spring of 1958, a mysterious individual, believed to be high up in the Polish secret service, began passing Soviet secrets to the West. The man was one of the most important, yet least known or understood, spies of the Cold War.
Join bestselling author Tim Tate as he delves into the life of Michał Goleniewski and explores the pivotal role he played in identifying hundreds of KGB agents operating undercover in the West. Goleniewski’s work helped to uncover George Blake, the Krogers and the members of the Portland Spy Ring.
For the first time, Tim Tate shines a light on the dramatic true story of this complex man whose death is shrouded in mystery.
This event is sponsored by the Polish Cultural Institute.
