were in the Reform temple
and an overflow crowd of
several hundred stood out-
side in cold weather listen-
ing to loudspeakers for the
animal ceremony sponsored
by the Warsaw Ghetto
Resistance Organization
(WAGRO). The ceremony- in
New York was one of many
being held by Jewish com-
munities throughout the
country, including an ob-
servance at Cong. Bnai
Moshe in Oak Park.

Benjamin Meed, presi-
dent of WAGRO, set the
theme for the ceremony
which also marked the
30th anniversary of the lib-
' eration of the concentra-
tion camps by American
and allied troops, when he
noted that 30 years ago the
world allowed the Holo-
caust to happen and it is
possible that it would hap-
pen again.

Mayor Abraham Beame
and Gov. Hugh Carey issued
proclamations declaring the
day "Warsaw Ghetto Com-
memoration Day" in New
York.

Mothers Protest Sentence
of Sons by Moscow Court

NEW YORK (JTA) — Itta
Nashpitz and Batya Tsi-
tlionok, the mothers of
Mark Nashpitz and Boris
Tsitlionok, conducted a
three-day hunger strike this
week in front of the Isaiah
Wall opposite the United
Nations headquarters to
protest against the five-year
exile sentence imposed
March 31 on their sons by a
Moscow district-court.
The two mothers were
joined in their strike by
August Stern, the son of Dr.
Mikhail Stern. The three are
conducting their hunger
strike--also in a dramatic
plea for support of op-
pressed Jews in the Soviet
Union.
The two women will par-
ticipate in the Russian Je-
wry solidarity rally
Wednesday evening at the
Detroit Jewish Community

Flags in Israel'
Recall Holocaust

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Rare
flags that recall anguished
memories of Jewish com-
munities destroyed by the
Nazis are on display this
week with other memorabi-
lia at the new Maccabi
Museum.
The include the flag of the
Dusseldorf Maccabi Club
which a Jewish youth res-
cued from burning when
Nazis threw it into flames
on the notorious "Crystal
Night" 37 years ago.
The Dusseldorf flag is
flanked by the flag of the
Czechoslovakian Maccabi
which was saved when the
Nazis marched -into Prague
in 1939.
The exhibit includes a
flag of the Maccabi Club in
Sofia, Bulgaria; a special
medal given to Maccabi
gymnasts by Theodor Herzl
at the 1903 Zionist Congizess
in Basel; and documents
from Maccabi clubs in for-
mer Jewish communities in
Harbin, Manchuria, Shan-
ghai, Cairo, Tripoli, Damas-
cus, Warsaw, Vilna and
Odessa. The new museum,-
named for the veteran Mac-
cabi leader Pierre Gildes-
game, will serve as a re-
search center for Jewish
sports history.

Center (see story on page

18).
Meanwhile, the Na-
tional Conference on So-
viet Jewry reported that
an appeal was filed in
Moscow for Nashpitz and
Tsitlionok. There was no
immediate information as
to when the appeal will be
heard.

At the same time, Bronx
Borough- President Robert
Abrams proclaimed Sunday
as "Solidarity Sunday" for
Soviet Jews in the Bronx
and urged residents to join
the march and rally.
Eight Minsk Jewish activ-
ists went on a three-day
hunger strike to protest the
exile sentence given Nash-
pitz and Tsitlionok.
Similar hunger strikes
are being conducted by Jews
in Moscow, Leningrad,
Odessa, Kiev, Vilna, Kishi-
nev and other cities. Some
100 Jews are believed to be
involved in the hunger
strikes.

Milwaukee Rabbi
Has World 'Record
for Rope Skipping

MILWAUKEE (JTA) —
Milwaukee Rabbi Francis
Barry Silberg claimed the
world record last week- for
continuous rope skipping as
recorded by the Guinness
Book of Wo-rld Records.



He jumped 35,000 rope
revolutions in four hours
and 10, minutes-to surpass a
previous record. To prepare
himself for the feat, Silber,
32, ran 10 to 15 miles daily
and jumped rope whever
rabbinic duties allowed the
time. He is _the associate
rabbi at Cong. Emanu-El
B'ne Jeshurun.
Completing his jumping,
Silberg still had enough en-
ergy to do five pushups. Set-
ting world records are not
new. to the rabbi. On Aug.
12, 1968, he ran the snake
path route up Masada in 16
minutes, 20 seconds, beat-
ing even the best Israeli par-
atroopers who use the run
for_training.

Soviet Trade Boss
Cuts British Visit

G(Iti

LONDON (JTA) — Alex-
ander Shelepin, the Soviet
trade union boss, Politburo
member and former head of
the KGB (secret police) left
Britain last week almost'
surreptitiously by way of
Glasgow, cutting what was
to have been a four-day visit
to two days and leaving the
general impression of a
fiasco, especially on the part
of the leaders of the Trade
Union Congress who had
invited him here.
At his only press confer-
ence, Shelepin blamed
"Zionists" mainly for the
widespread demonstrations
against him.
Although British Jewry
was opposed to the visit of
the man they hold largely
responsible for the anguish
of many Soviet Jews seeking
exit visas, the biggest dem-
onstrations against Shele-
pin were staged by Ukraini-
ans, Lithuanians and other
Soviet ethnic minorities in
Britain.
