'''Gleb Alexandrovich Rahr''' (Russian: Глеб Александрович Рар) ([[October 3]], 1922-[[March 3]], 2006) was an exiled Russian journalist who dedicated his life to the Orthodox Church. He is a survivor of Nazi concentration camps, and his account of Pascha at Dachau in 1945 is one of the few to be recounted of this momentous occasion. He was active in trying to bring the Gospel into Soviet Russia, as well as informing the rest of the world of the plight of the Orthodox Church within the Soviet Union. As conditions for the Church slowly started to improve in his homeland, he was at the forefront of the effort to reunite the [[Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia]] (ROCOR) with the [[Church of Russia|Moscow Patriarchate]].
