Boris Rozin was the undisputed authority on laws relating to the Far North.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. He was a candidate of legal sciences, the author of scientific articles on the workers’ labor’s legal regulation in the Far North.

Rozin was an indisputable authority in legislation terms related to the Far North. The instruction on the procedure for providing social guarantees and compensations to working northerners, of which he was a co-author, was a reference book for all personnel officers, economists, employees of labor and wage departments in the Norilsk industrial region and other country’s northern territories.

Boris Rozin was the All-Russian Society of Book Lovers’ Norilsk branch’s chairman for 15 years, the Polar Drama Theater’s artistic council’s member and the Knowledge society presidium’s member. Rozin was a man of great erudition and a wonderful sense of humor. He was the most welcome guest at the Combine’s young specialists’ council’s creative evenings.

The Combine’s former director Alexei Loginov said about him:

“An exceptional role was played by the Combine’s chief lawyer Boris Rozin during the camps’ liquidation and the transition to civilian staff. This is truly a lawyer by the grace of God. A man of sparkling humor, sociable, friendly, sometimes caustic, he was constantly surrounded by people. His apartment was the Norilsk cultural life’s center”.

Journalist Anatoly Lvov wrote on the chief lawyer’s 60th anniversary in 1981:

“He has been living in one northern city for thirty years. If we calculate, modestly, that every day ten Norilsk people meet with him only at work, it will turn out to be 75 thousand, with whom he stayed face to face, confidant in their affairs and even destinies”.
