Example text

The outbreak of World War II caused an ideological breakthrough in his life. In September 1939 he found himself under Soviet occupation. While trying to cross the border into Romania, he was arrested by the NKVD but was released. He returned to German-occupied Warsaw, and then he went to Wilno (Vilnius), which was under Lithuanian rule. In January 1940 he came back to Warsaw and joined a leftist youth organization, Hashomer Hatzair (Young Guard), derived from a revolutionary wing of the Poale Zion Left.

In 1940–49 he was a member of the Supreme Council of the Estonian SSR, and in 1940–46, a member of the Supreme Council of the USSR. With the wave of purges that affected the Estonian party in 1950, Andresen was accused of “bourgeois nationalism” and deported to Siberia. After his return he withdrew from political life and worked as a teacher. He published biographies of Friedebert Tuglas (1968) and Paul Kuusberg (1976). He also translated works by Maksxim Gorky, Ilya Ehrenburg, and Arnold Zweig, as well as Das Kapital, by Karl Marx, and the Communist Manifesto.
