In the 1930s under the name of Antonio Gonsales, Lieutenant of republican fleet, Gurevich participated in the Spanish civil war as a volunteer; at the same time he was conducting intelligence work. Then under the name of Vincente Sierra he appeared in Bruxelles. Before the WWII and during the war Gurevich worked in Europe under the pseudonym of Kent, the paper expands.
 
In March 1940, Kent reported to Moscow on preparations of Germany to attack the Soviet Union. Then he personally adjusted contacts with a high-ranking German officer and anti-fascist Shulze-Boysen that enabled the Soviet military intelligence to receive important information on a regular basis, Moy rayon notes.

Gurevich has been mentioned as a member of the underground anti-fascist organization Red Chapel, however, he denied that such an organization existed. According to Gurevich, it was the code name of a network of anti-fascist groups in Germany, Belgium, France, Switzerland providing intelligence for the Soviets. In November, 1942, Gurevich was arrested in Marseilles. Online paper Forum.msk writes that even there he managed to recruit several German counterspies, including adviser Panviz. After the end of the WWII, in June, 1945, Gurevich delivered these persons to Moscow together with important papers of the German Reich Main Security Office (RHSA), according to Vladimir Peshchersky, a KGB Colonel and a former foreign intelligence agent, cited by Moy rayon.

In the prison of the People's Commissariat of Interior (NKVD) in 1947, he was sentenced to 20 years for treason. In 1955, after Stalin’s death, Gurevich was released but not rehabilitated. In 1958 he was detained again and spent two more years in a labour camp. Only in 1991 Anatoly Gurevich was rehabilitated.
