NEW YORK (JTA) — "Shock
and chagrin" at the decision by
the West German Bundestag, upon
the recommendation of the cabi-
net, to defer indemnification pay-
ments to Nazi victims over the
next two years, was voiced by
Jacques Torczyner, president of
the Zionist Organization of Ameri-
ca, in a telegram sent to Dr.
Heinrich Knappstein, West Ger-
man ambassador in Washington.
The Zionist leader termed this
action as "a flagrant violation of
Germany's moral obligations to
the survivors of the Nazi horror
who have been counting upon this
indemnification for their con-
tinued survival." He pointed out
that the recent developments "are
very disturbing, occurring as they

A gala performance in Moscow of the
Shostokovitch Thirteenth Symphony, in-
cluding a choral rendering the Yevtu-
shenko poem Baba Yar, was in contrast
to two years ago, when both the sym-
phony and the poem were virulently
denounced and withdrawn from the
Soviet repertoire. This is seen as sug-
gesting the possibility of .a reversal of
the Soviet policy of silence about the
Jewish victims of the Nazil holocaust,
were it not for the notable failure of
Soviet authorities to break this silence
even in the inscriptions on monuments
to Nazi victims. Such a monument, de-
signed by a Soviet Jewish sculptor, was
erected only recently at Rodina, near
Smolensk, but while it was dedicated at
the old Jewish cemetery in the area,
and Soviet propaganda has made much
of the Jewishness of the sculptor, the
inscription on it makes no mention what-
ever of Jewish martyrdom, and it bears
no Yiddish or Hebrew language, as do
similar monuments on Auschwitz, War-
saw and elsewhere outside Russia. At
Ponar in Lithuania, the Yiddish inscrip-
tion on a memorial was torn down by
vandals more than ten years ago and
never has been restored. In the Ukraine,
Lithuania and Moldavia, where popular
anti-Semitism has been more virulent,
this official silence about the tragedy
of the Jews can only serve to suggest
official toleration of the popular bigotry.
The report of the American Jewish Con-
ference on Soviet Jewry concludes that
Soviet propaganda about Soviet respect
for Jewish martyrdom under the Nazis
is largely a myth.

demnation of anti-Semitism" by no less
