Gareth Jones

a.k.a. Gareth Richard Vaughan Jones

Author Code: EGRJ

Born: Aug. 13, 1905 - Bary, Wales

Died: Aug. 12, 1935 - Manchuko, Mongolia

Educated at University College of Wales, Jones graduated in 1926 with a first-class honours. He then studied at the University of Strasbourg and at Trinity College, Cambridge where he graduated in 1929 with a first in French, German and Russian. While at Cambridge, he was active as the assistant secretary in the Cambridge University League of Nations Union. Following graduation, he taught language briefly at Cambridge. In January 1930, he was hired as a Foreign Affairs Advisor to former prime minister David Lloyd George. His position involved preparing notes and briefings Lloyd George could use in debates, speeches and also included some travel abroad. In his own right, Jones had been submitting articles to newspapers and journals since the end of 1929. In the beginning of 1933, Jones was in Germany covering the Nazi Party's accession to power. He was also invited to accompany Hitler and Goebbels to Frankfurt and witnessed Hitler's tumultuous reception there. Jones had also been to Russia in 1930 and again in 1931 for a month. In 1933, he travelled to the Soviet Union and was successful in slipping into the Ukraine and keeping a diary of the starvation he witnessed there. He published his findings, but Walter Duranty published a denial, 'Russians Hungry, But Not Starving' which won him a Pulitzer Prize. Nevertheless Jones' description proved true. In late 1934, he left Britain for an around-the-world fact-finding tour. First visiting Japan, then China and entered Inner Mongolia. He was subsequently kidnapped in Manchuko by bandits and executed. Many sources feel that his death was engineered by the Soviet NKVD. An excellent film documenting his life was made in 2019 as simply 'Mr. Jones'. His works include The Snobbery of Soviet Russia (1930), The Two Russias (1930), My Russian Diary (1930), The Real Russia (1931), Russia's Starvation (1935), There Is No Bread (1935) and Reds Let Peasants Starve (1935).
