Soviet Jewish Activist's Trial Awaitin

NEW YORK (JTA) —
The trial of Vladimir
Sverdlin, a Leningrad
Jewish activist charge
with possession of am-
munition in his home, is
scheduled to open this
week, the Student Strug-
gle for Soviet Jewry and
the Union of Councils for
Soviet Jewry reported.
They said Sverdlin, a
construction engineer
who has been out of work
since applying for an exit
visa, may also be charged
with "parasitism."

The organizations said
that two appeals to
"world public opinion"
have been signed by
Leningrad Jews who
characterized the trial as
the "latest in a chain of
persecutions" aimed at
stifling Jewish culture in
the USSR. Sverdlin is the
founder of the Shalom
Club, an informal group,
which meets each Satur-
day to discuss Jewish cul-
ture.

Jacobson added that, in

his cable to Narkiss ; he
had said that the women
ha,d been hired because of
their knowledge of En-
glish and Russian to fill
out the required forms
based on "our desire to
cooperate with the
Jewish Agency so that
the dropouts do not re-
main indefinitely in Vie-
nna."
Jacobson said this was
done in accordance with a
request from the Jewish
Agency, which he said
was made in 1968, that
HIAS act to move the
dropouts from Vienna to
Rome within 72 hours.
To do that, Jacobson
said, there is an "in-
dispensable minimum of
paper work" on forms for
Austrian and Italian offi-
cials and the two girls
were hired to fill out those
forms.
Jacobson - said that one
of the typists is emigrat-
ing on Jan. 10 to the
United States to rejoin
her family here and that
the second typist, who
was hired,last Dec. 27, will
, leave on Feb. 4 to join a
'brother in Sweden.
Meanwhile, a new unit-
has been mobilized at
HIAS world headquar-
ters to guide recently ar-
rived immigrants from
the Soviet Union in the
preparation of "Letters of
Invitation" to relatives
still in Russia. Soviet
Jews who wish to join
family in the U.S.,
Canada and elsewhere in
the free world could then
apply directly for the ap-
propriate visa.
During each of the past
two years the Soviet gov-
ernment has issued some
600 to 700 exit visas for
Soviet Jews based upon
letters of invitation from
the U.S.
The new "Letter of Invi-
tation Unit" at HIAS is
prepared to\ provide tech-
nical assistance to all local
Jewish family agencies
throughout the U.S. on the
proper preparation and

-

importance of these let-
ters. •
The procedure for pre-
paring and processing
letters of invitation, with
the ultimate goal an exit
visa for a Soviet Jewish
family, is complex. The
Soviet system of emigra-
tion is based on this invi-
tation for family reunion
letter (vysov) which is
presented by a prospec-
tive emigrant to local
Soviet authorities (ovir).
This differs from the pat-
tern in other countries
where a prospective
emigrant can apply on his
or her own initiative for a
passport and exit visa.
The ovir may take three
to six months to reach a
decision on a letter of in-
vitation arriving from the
U.S. The format for these
letters has been pre-
scribed by the USSR, and
HIAS is cautioning all
cooperating agencies
that it must be followed
precisely to insure the
possibility of a favorable.

response.
In order to keep posted
on the flow of, letters of
invitation to the Soviet -
Union (and the results)
all cooperating agencies
have been requested to
send HIAS a Zerox copy
of each letter they help
process.
