Actor With Kanainska Troup Defects
S.: Protests Anti-Semitism in Poland



NEW YORK—(JTA)—The young-
e-t member of Ida Kam inska's
Jewish State Theater of Poland.
which recently completed a suc-
cessful tour of the United States.
is seeking political asylum here
after defecting because he does not
want to live in a country where his
relatives were murdered and
where he is treated as a second-
class citizen.
lienryk Grynberg, 31. gave these
reasons at a press conference, for
not returning to Poland with the
Yiddish troupe when it left New
York Dec. 19 after an eight-week

engagement. Grynberg and his
non-Jewish wife, the Polish actress
Krystyna Walczak, are now in Bev-
erly Hills, Calif., where they are
staying with Grynberg's mother,
Mrs. Sophie Towarzek, who immi-
grated to the United States eight
years ago. He said that he planned
to report to U.S. immigration of-
ficials promptly.

The young actor said that his
father, his younger brother, two

uncles and five aunts were
slaughtered by the Nazis in Po-
land during World War II. He
and his mother survived by hid-

ing in the forests. His visit to the
United States was his fifth trip
abroad with the Kaminska troupe
since he joined it in 1959. He had
always returned to Poland from
the previous trips and said that
he would have done so now, had
he not been a Jew, in order to
fight with other intellectuals
against the repressions of the
Communist regime. But, if you
are labeled a Jew, he said, it is
difficult to do anything in Po-

set 112 in Mandatory days, and by
a tour of the Golan Heights and of
the now outposts set up by the
movement in that region. The con-
ventiim of 1927 did not by any
means mark the birth of the kib-
utz movement as a whole. The
Kibutz Ilametthad trend com-
menced its work of halutzic settle-
ment lone before 1927; the con-
vention of 40 years ago serving
merely to sum up halutzic activities
which began with the founding of
the fit-4 kevutza at Sejera over 60
years auo. continuing with the es-.
tablisliment of Kevutzat Kinneret,.
which some years ago marked the,
jubilee of its establishment and
subsenuently with the founding of
Ein Harod.
The Kibutz Ilameuhad mem-
bers came over with the second
aliya and established the settle-
ments of Degania and Kinneret,
Ayelet Ilashachar and Kfar Giladi;
members of the third aliya who es-
tablished Ein Harod Tel Yosef and
Ramat Rachel, to mention but a
few: members of the fourth and
fifth aliyot who founded Afikim,
Ashded Ya'acov and Hanita, and
members of the second generation
of lir.ttitzie youth to whose credit
one may ascribe the establishment
of EM Gadi. Yotvata and Grofit in
the far south, as well as halutzic
youth from English-speaking coun-
tries. from South America and
West ern Europe.

Kibutz Hameuhad settlements
cultivate an area of 146,000 acres
of Which 43.000 are under irriga-
tion. including 6.600 acres under
citrus. 8.000 acres under other
plantations, 16,600 acres under fish-
ponds. 13.300 acres under cotton
and 7.300 acres under vegetables.
Their livestock accounts for 15.000
