Soviet Jewry Issue
I.ONDON (JTA) — The two lead-
ing Soviet newspapers have taken
issue with critics of Russia's treat-
ment of its Jewish citizens.
Grigori Plotkin, writing in the
Communist Party organ Pravda,
claims that anti-Semitism was
eliminated in the Soviet Union 52
years ago in the October Revolu-
Izvestia, the government news-
paper, said that Soviet policy per-
mitted Jews to reunite with rela-
tive's abroad although it virtually
ruled out emigration by other Jews
or Soviet citizens generally.
The articles in both news-
papers replied to charges made
by Israel and by Jews in other
countries that the Kremlin de-
liberately suppresses Jewish cul-
tural and religious life in the
USSR in violation of the Soviet

When the Holocaust -was in
full swing, Graebe was a direc-
tor of a German construction
company. In this capacity, he
saw to it that Jewish employes
escaped arrest by the N a zi S.
Once, when 50 Jews from his
district were under arrest,
Graebe convinced the Gestapo
to release them from the huts
in which Jews being sent to
death camps were housed. Gra-
ebe was the only German to
testify at the Nuremberg trials.
Now a resident of San Fran-
cisco, he continues to hunt down
Nazis still at large.
Shortly after the Nazis occupied
France, Dr. Hautval, then a young
psychiatrist, was arrested for
traveling without proper docu-
ments and sent to a French prison.
After protesting the treatment of
Jewish prisoners there, she was
transferred to Auschwitz.
Four times at Auschwitz, Dr.
Hautval was ordered to conduct
"medical" experiments on Jewish
inmates. Four times she refused.
In an attempt to persuade her,
a Nazi doctor asked: "Don't you
know that there are people differ-
ent from us?" Dr. Hautval replied:
"Yes I do, and you are the first

clared: "No one of us will leave

When the Nazis occupied Hol-
land, Dr. Sandberg, then director
of Amsterdam's City Museum,
helped print thousands of forgad
identification cards and distribute
them to Jews who could then pass
as Aryans. Despite the excellent
forgeries, he and his colleagues
realized that the cards could still
be checked against the files in the
Nazi Registry Office. They there-
fore formed a small band and, in
a daring raid, blew up the office
and destroyed the files. Of the 22
