UNESCO Accused of Distributing
False Information on Soviet Jews

cius D. Battle, Assistant Secre-
tary of State for Educational and
Cultural Affairs, has charged the
United Nations Educational,
Scientific and Cultural Organiza-
tion with distributing a booklet
misrepresenting the status of
Jews in the Soviet Union, and
cited false statements in the
UNESCO publication. Battle's
testimony was revealed by the
publication of hearings by the
Senate Foreign Relations Com-
mittee's Subcommittee on Inter-
national Organization Affairs.
Attacking the accuracy of the
booklet, "Equality of Rights Be-
tween Races and Nationalities
in the USSR," the State Depart-
ment official pointed out that it
had been distributed to many
American libraries by UNESCO.
He cited the UNESCO publica-
tion's assertion on the "rights
and liberties" of Jews and em-

phasized that only recently, the
Soviet regime banned the baking
of Passover matzohs in Moscow.
The UNESCO booklet said that
"account has to be taken of a
natural process which has great-
ly developed during the last 20
years, the voluntary assimilation
of. the Jewish population." But
the fact is, said Battle, "in the
USSR census of 1959, 2,268,000
registered as Jews." He stressed
that "the idea of assimilation is
in conflict with the requirement
that each Jew must be so desig-
nated in the internal passport."
He pointed out that although
UNESCO states that "the vast
majority of Jews of the new gen-
eration have freely adopted the
language and culture of other
peoples of the USSR,' the fact
is that since the second World
War no Soviet schools have
taught Yiddish. In 1933, he said,
there were 800 such schools,
with more than 120,000 students.

Ben-Gurion Regrets Israel Can't
Afford to Take Part in N.Y. Fair

NEW YORK, (JTA)—Israel's
Prime Minister David Ben-
Gurion explained, in a letter to
New York Mayor Robert F.
Wagner, that Israel had decid-
ed definitely against partici-
pating in the Ney York World's
Fair, because of a lack of money
due to the burdens of defense
expenditures, immigrant a b -
sorption and education.
The explaination was made
in a letter replying to one pre-
viously sent to Ben-Gurion by
Wagner. The Mayor had urged
the Israeli Premier to reconsid-
er a previous decision to omit

France Catches
Nazi Sentenced to
Death in Absentia

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire

MARSEILLES—Jean Barbier,
one of France's last unarrested
Nazi war criminals, who was
seized here on Sunday on charges
of murdering Jews, has been re-
leased on bail, police reported
Tuesday. They declined to give
any details.
Barbier had been sentenced to
death in absentia after France
was liberated. Among the
charges was the murder of three
Jewish children in one family
whom he threw into the Iser
River from a bridge only a few
days before the Allies liberated
Grenoble. He also was charged
with personally shooting 12 Jews
he had found hiding in the city.
Although a Frenchman, Bar-
bier had been a member of the
German Gestapo. He disappeared
with the retreating Germans, but
it was later learned he returned
to Grenoble about 10 years ago
under an assumed name and had
lived there since. Had he man-
aged to escape arrest for two
more years he would have been
free under the French statute of
limitations for such crimes.

French Minister Will
Discuss Middle East
With Rusk in Capitol

PARIS—The Middle East situ-
ation probably will be on the
agenda when French Foreign
Minister Maurice Couve De Mur-
ville meets with Secretary of
State Dean Rusk in Washington
on May 25, a French Foreign
Minister spokesman said here
It was generally believed that
the French Foreign Minister
would express his satisfaction
over President Kennedy's declar-
ation of support for Israel's se-
curity at his press conference
last week. The French diplomat
also was expected to seek to im-
press on U. S. officials he will
meet the need to maintain at all
costs "peace and calm" in the
Middle East.

participation in the 1964 Fair.
In his response, Ben-Gurion re-
ferred to the current heavy fis-
cal demands on his government,
and said he found it "regret-
table" that Israel could not par-
ticipate. Ben-Gurion pointed out
that the funds involved would
have amounted to $3,000,000.
He stated:
"I am also told that we can-
not conceivably reduce the esti-
mate for our pavilion without
injuring the level of its presen-
tation of our country and we
took the decision rather not to
have a pavilion at all than to
have an inadequate one. We in-
vestigated other areas of finan-
cing and these, too, were not
desirable or practicable. I must
repeat, regretfully—and it is in-
deed regrettable, for New York
occupies a special place for
many of us and for myself per-
sonally—that we shall have to
forego the benefits of partici-
pating in the World's Fair."
