Congressmen, Jewish Groups Protest Soviet
Restrictions on Packages for Oppressed Jews

NEW YORK (JTA) — The
Greater New York Confer-
ence on Soviet Jewry as-
sailed the "harsh new re-
strictions the Soviet Union
put into effect on the size
and value of parcels which
may be sent into the USSR."
The GNYCSJ will conduct
an intensive drive to pres-
sure the Soviets to rescind
these restrictions.
Hoenlein,
Malcolm
GNYCSJ executive director,
pointed out that the new
regulations will raise the as-
sessed value of some items
sent into the Soviet. Union
by eight or 10 times their
normal value. This will have
the effect of raising the im-
port duty, already at 70 per-
cent of assessed amount. In
addition, limits will be
placed on the quantity and
types of goods which may be
sent.

held a press conference
Monday on the steps of
New York City's Main
Post Office to protest new
Soviet restrictions.
Rep. James Scheuer (D-
N.Y.) said that the action
was a viol a tion of the Hel-
sinki agreement. He and
other Congressmen said
they would seek legislative
action. Richard Rosenbaum,
Republican State Chair-
man, said the New York
Republican Committee has
asked Secretary of State
Henry A. Kissinger and
Treasurer Secretary Wil-
liam Simon to intervene.
A similar protest against
the new Soviet tax on par-
cels was held in San Fran-
cisco last week by the Ad
Hoc Humanitarian Com-
mittee, which maintained a
one-hour vigil outside of the
Soviet Consulate.
Meanwhile, a group of
"refuseniks" associated
with an unofficial Moscow
scientific seminar and who
are under pressure from the
KGB Dave issued a call for
strengthened American
scientific efforts on behalf
of their Sovi'dt Jewish col-
leagues.

According to the Stu-
dent Struggle for Soviet
Jewry, 50 scientists from
12 cities in the USSR, who
have been dismissed from
their jobs for applying to
leave for Israel, regularly
attempt to reach the semi-
nar, held weekly at the
apartment of 44-year-old
physicist Prof. Mark Az-
bel.
In a related development,
the SSSJ said that a simul-
taneous hunger strike was
held at the Western Wall in
Jerusalem by former Kiev-
ites and in the Ukrainian
capital by young activist
Peter Kriksunov on behalf
of Yakov Vinarov, a student
sentenced to three years for
refusing a punitive Soviet
army draft as punishment
for applying to leave. Imme-
diately after the hunger
strike Kriksunov received an
exit visa.
In Leningrad, 26 year-old
Vladimir Sverdlin was at-
tacked by a group of KGB
wants who sought to take
his internal passport. S-ver-
dlin fought back, kept his
passport, but was jailed for
several days.
The SSSJ has learned
from the Detroit Committee
for Soviet Jewry that Sver-
dlovsk activist Isaac Zlotver,
already ill with high blood
pressure and a heart condi-
tion, has been hospitlized
with a bladder tumor. Iso-
lated because of. their Zion-
ist activities, his wife Dina
stays with him alihost con-
tinually, fearing for his life.
In Jerusalem it was re-
ported that Andrei Sak-
harov, the Soviet Nobel
Laureate and a prominent
dissident and critic of the
Soviet regime, will be
awarded an honorary doc-
torate by the Hebrew Uni-
versity at its annual con-
vocation next month.
Leon Dulzin, treasurer of
the Jewish Agency, has re-
ported that 60 percent of the

,\/

As an act of open defiance, top Soviet Jewish activ-
ists march through the streets of Minsk carrying the tal
it-covered open bier of martyred Col. Yefim Davidovich,
hounded to death by .the KGB for his eloquent denuncia-
tions of official anti-Semitism. Hundreds of Jews, some
displaying Davidovich's numerous war medals, followed
the coffin to the cemetery.

Jews presently leaving the
Soviet Union are going to
countries other than Israel
and if this rate of "neshira"
(drop : out) continued, the
future of Russian-Jewish
emigration to Israel would
be in jeopardy.

Dulzin said that of the
130,000 Soviet Jews who em-
igrated in recent years, 12,-
000 went to countries other
than Israel and 8,000 who
came to Israel subsequently
left for other countries.
Meanwhile, two Israeli
scientitists from the Agri-
cultural Research Institute
at Beth Dagon have been
invited to attend a scientific
workshop at Samarkand, in
Soviet Central Asia, later
this month.
In London, the recent
Passover celebration in
the Moscow apartment of
Prof _ . Alexander Lerner
was seen on British televi-
sion Monday evening.

It is part of a. color film
taken secretly in the Soviet
capital dealing with the
struggle for emigration by
Jews and Volga Germans.

Urge Israel Role
in Nazi War Trials

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Tuvia
Friedman, head of the Nazi
Documentation Center in
Haifa, said last week that
either the Israeli govern-
ment or the Jewish Agency
should have an official ob-
server at all Nazi war
crimes trials.

He said the absence of
such observers is inter-
preted as a lack of interest
by the victims of the Nazis
and may be the reason for
light sentences or acquittals
in German and Austrian
courts.

Friedman was comment-
ing on the acquittal in Ham-
burg of Karl Streibel, a for-
mer death camp com-
mandant, and five former
guards who were accused of
being responsible for the
death of a million Jews.

Felix Aronovich of Len-
ingrad has received sev-
eral Soviet exit refusals,
according to the Student
Struggle for Soviet Jewry.
His wife Alla was recently
given a visa to join his
mother and brother who
have already reached free-
dom, but the 45 year-old
mechcnical engineer won-
ders if he will ever see his
child, who is expected
shortly.
