Soviets Publish Slurs

NEW YORK (JTA) —
"Zionist Falsehoods,"
printed by the Novosti Press
Agency in Moscow and re-
cently optained by the Na-
tional Conference on Soviet
Jewry, claims that second-
ary students in Israel are
taught that "Jews are enti-
tled to slaves."
Printed in English for
export just over a year ago,
the book accuses Jews of
being taught that "they are
the elite of the human race
and were specially created
to pay homage to the Crea-
tor. Because of this they
deserve to have slaves and
these must be non-Jews be-
cause a Jewish slave would
not devote himself entirely
to God."
The book, written by B.
Bakanov, is divided into four
chapters: "Zionism Yester-
day and Today," "The Call
of the Promised Land,"
"The True Face of Israel,"
and "The Deceived Open
their Eyes."
Reminscent of the most
notorious anti-Semitic liter-
ature of the Nazi era, the
book pretends to show that
Zionists have always wel-
comed anti-Semitism,
"because it is this that has
always justified their exist-
ence." The book continues,
"It was fascism that
brought death and suffering
to millions of people, that
enabled the Zionists to
make a 'selection' of settlers
to the future Israeli state."
The book says that Zionists
put a high emphasis on anti-
Semitism so that Jews will
recognize "that all non-Jews
should be treated as anti-
Semites."

Meanwhile the Soviet
Union continues to har-
rass Soviet Jews by
"losing" the mail sent to
them from abroad, even
through by treaty ar-
rangement each letter
costs the government re-
sponsible $15.76. It was
reported that Josef Gurv-
ich, a 1974 Soviet emigre

Gerda W. Klein, Buffalo;
William M. Landau, New
York; Elmer Louis, Roches-
ter; Phyllis Malamud, New
York; Dr. John Slawson,
New York; Isidore Sobeloff,
Los Angeles; Livid Starr,
New York; Dorothy Stein-
berg, New York; Elie Wie-
sel, New York; Jerold C.
Hoffberger, Baltimore, CJF
president, ex-officio.

The International Postal
Convention signed in Ot-
towa in 1957 by the Soviet
Union, provides that an in-
demnity be paid for each
lost registered letter. This
indemnity is supposed to be
paid in six months time
from the day following the
day of inquiry by the postal
administration, if in this
time the letter is not found.
Gurvich charges that his
letters were "systematically
lost, even though he sent
them registered and with
return receipts requested."
He received no letters and
no return receipts.
He went on to claim that
an emigrant from Moscow
collected the indemnity for
over 400 of his registered
letters before his relatives
and friends in the U.S.S.R.
began to receive mail.
