out success recently to con-
vince President Augusto Pin-
ochet Ugarte that the film

should not be banned in

Two days before the meet-

ing with the president, the
World Wide Delivery
government Secretary, Col.
Pedro Ewing Hodar, wrote
to Sinay "to inform you and
assure you categorically that
said measure has nothing at
all to do with the world-wide
Jewish community, nor much
less with the resident com-
munity with which the gov-
ernment maintains and
wishes to continue to main-
tain the most cordial rela-
tions."
Hodar's letter added: "The
prohibition of the picture
("Fiddler") obeys the fact
that it was considered to con-
tain a message clearly fav-
orable to the Marxist tenden-
cies, of which the Jewish
people as well as our coun-
try have been the victims."
According to Sinay, Ugarte
said he did not deny the ar-
tistic merit of the film but
did not consider it favorable
to the Jewish tradition be-
cause one of the hero's
daughters married a person
of a different faith and an-
other married a student with
revolutionary ideas who did
not accept the traditional
marriage bonds.
Ugarte took exception to a
sequence in which he said
the intervention of the mili-
tary forces was magnified
with the clubbing of young
students who carried red
banners.
He said that this might not
be important in other cir-
cumstances, but considering
the present situation in Chile,
"the junta cannot accept any
factor of dissension," Sinay
reported.
Sinay said that neverthe-
less, he and Rabbi Kreiman
stressed that it would be

very difficult to correct im-
pressions abroad that the
ban on "Fiddler" did not
have an anti-Semitic basis
and that this view would
only create a false image of
events in Chile.
They also pointed out to
the President that "Fiddler"
has been banned in the Sov-
iet Union but exhibited with
great success in countries
like Spain and Brazil. The
latter two governments are
vehemently anti-Marxist.

It also was reported that
the rabbi of the Chilean Jew-
ish community, Dr. Angel
Kreimart, says he acted
solely in an ecumenical and
humanitarian spirit when he
signed a petition, with cler-
gymen of other faiths, asking
the ruling military junta to
grant amnesty to political
prisoners, among them four
persons of Jewish origin who
were not identified.
Rabbi Kreiman, stressed ,
that the Jewish community
had no problems or quarrels
with the regime.
The petition drew sharp
attacks from official quart-
ers after it was published in
newspapers here. It was
signed by the Cardinal of
Chile, Raul Silva Henriques,
and the . Lutheran Bishop,
Hellmuth Frenz, in addition
to Rabbi Kreiman.
The rabbi stated that his
membership on the Commit-
tee for Peace in Chile and
his signature on the clem-
ency petition had no other
reason but to act in accord
with the other religious
bodies.
