Jack Barsky’s life has been improbable, impossible and downright fascinating. CBS’ 60 Minutes found it so interesting that they featured the story in a double segment and re-aired it twice.
This true spy story had a very humble beginning in the most backward corner of the old East Germany. Smarts and hard work got Jack out into the world, where he started a career teaching chemistry and math at a well-known university.
Then his life took a fantastic detour – Jack was recruited by the KGB and infiltrated into the US where he spent ten years spying for the Soviet Union. He “resigned” from the KGB and was eventually discovered by the FBI. Today, Jack is a law abiding patriotic American citizen who is taking advantage of one last chance to live a normal life.
He is now taking his story and his vast experience on both sides of the iron curtain to live audiences.
