Retired Soviet Jewish General Says He'll Die if Emigration Is Denied

PARIS — An assistant to
Sen. Vance Hartke (D., Ind.)
reported, following a meeting
with a retired Jewish general
in the Soviet Union, that the
latter still is being held in
Minsk and harassed by the
police despite official prom-
ises of a permit to emigrate
to Israel last May.
Gen. Yofim Davidovich met
with Leon Charney during
Charney's recent trip to the
Soviet Union to discuss trade
problems coming before the
Senate.
Charney made a special
trip to Minsk to check on the
Davidovich case, in which
Sen. Hartke had intervened
personally earlier this year.
Gen. Davidovich, Col. Levy

Ostreicher, Col. Noam 01-
shansky and a number of
other Minsk Jews had written
letters to Soviet authorities
asking for permission to emi-
grate. As a result, the three
heavily decorated World War
II heroes were accused of
creating "anti-state litera-
ture" and put on trial.

THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Sen. Hartke intervened, and
the petitioners were told they
would be allowed to leave.
One of them, poet Jasha Kip-
nes, did receive his papers
and now is in Israel.
Gen. Davidovich told Char-
ney that he was taken by the
police almost every day for
long interrogation and then
released at night. As a re-
sult, he reportedly developed
heart disease. He told Char-
ney, "If not Israel, then I
should die."

NYC Aide to Hire
More Jewish Police

NEW YORK (JTA)—Louis
Weiser, president of the
Council of Jewish Organiza-
tions in Civil Service of New
York, has been appointed as
a consultant to assist the
police department in its
recently - launched program
to increase the number of
Jewish members on the
force.
Police Commissioner Don-
ald Cawley, in announcing
the appointment, said Weiser
would serve in that capacity
on a parttime basis for the
next two years.
Weiser is a past president
of the Shomrim Society of
New York, the socio-religious
organization of Jewish police
officers. In the society's
volunteer effort, 18 police-
men and two policewomen,
members of the society, have
been speaking at meetings
at synagogues and youth
groups, in an off-duty educa-
tional effort.

tary towers in the city of

Charney also met with the
head of the Soviet passport
and visa service with regard
to the cases of some 650 per-
sons, many with dual U.S.-
Soviet citizenship, who have
been seeking to join relatives
in the U.S. Their names were
presented to Soviet authori-
ties 14 years ago when then
Vice President Nixon visited
Moscow.
Davidovich, Ostreicher, 01-
shansky and Solomon Goldin
informed the minister of the
interior of the Soviet Byelo-
Russian Republic that they
would demonstrate every
day, displaying placards and
the yellow Star of David until
they get exit visas. Ostreicher
is a Red Army hero, holder
of many decorations, who
had his pension canceled
when he applied for an exit
visa.
The National Conference on
Soviet Jewry reported that
the four Jews detained by
Soviet police last weekend at
the Babi Yar memorial cere-
mony were: Ida Nudel of
Moscow, Viktoria Poltinnikov
of Novosibirsk, Igor Gold-
farb of Kiev and Helen Sir-
tenko of Moscow.
The NCSJ also reported
that 10 Jews were arrested
in Moscow while demonstrat-
ing in front of the Tass news
agency building.
On the eve of Yom Kippur
13 Jewish leaders issued a
letter to "put on public rec-
ord" their appreciation for
all that Prof. Andrei Sakha-
rov "has done for Soviet Jews
within the framework of his
truly heroic struggle for hu-
man rights in the USSR."
The statement recalled that
the Soviet scientist many
times "put his own safety on
the line" by supporting the
Jackson amendment and par-
ticipating in vigils.
In Tel Aviv 35-year-old ac-
tivist Arkady Shpilberg said

on his arrival that Jewish
prisoners in Soviet prisons
and labor camps place high
hopes in the Jackson Amend-
ment and international action
on their behalf.
Shpilberg, who was recent-
ly released after completing
a three-year prison sentence,
was reunited with his wife
Margaret and his daughters,
Ruth and Yocheved, at Lod
Airport Oct. 1.
He said there were times
when it seemed that the
Jewish public was becoming
resigned to the fact that Jew-
ish prisoners of conscience
must remain in prison. This
is the time, he said, to in-
tensify the struggle for their
release.
He said the treatment of
Jewish prisoners has dete-
riorated of late. Anyone who
complains against the prison
administration is thrown into
solitary confinement, he said.
Shpilberg arrived with 145
other Soviet-Jewish emigres,
all of whom passed through
the Schoenau transit center
near Vienna.
Two leading Jewish ac-
tivists in Moscow, both phy-
sicists, were among the group
of 90 Soviet Jewish immi-
grants who arrived from
Vienna Oct. 2 on a plane
with Premier Golda Meir.
The two were Dr. Vladi-
mir Roginsky, who had been
arrested three times in the
Soviet Union for his activ-
ism, and Boris Einbinder,
who had been arrested once.
Dr. Roginsky said that
after the El Al plane was
airborne, "Golda came in
from the first class compart-
ment and greeted us in Yid-
dish. We told her we speak
Hebrew and immediately she
changed to Hebrew."
Mrs. Nina Katzir, wife of
Israeli President Ephraim
Katzir, greeted the newcom-
ers with flowers and told the

Their arrival was made
possible by the parole pro-
visions of the U.S. Immigra-
tion Act.

grants.

two physicists that she would
see to it that they continue
their scientific work.
Einbinder, 33, arrived with
his wife and 2-year-old son,
and Roginsky, 34, came with
his wife.
Fifteen Soviet Jews from
Odessa arrived at O'Hare
Field Oct. 1 to make their
homes in Chicago under the
aegis of agencies sponsored
by the Jewish United Fund
of Metropolitan Chicago.
