National Conference on So-
viet Jewry learned that
Wolf Chudnovsky, a Kiev re-
fusnik, was violently beaten
on July 29, the second time
within a onel-week period.
Chudnovsky is the father
of Grigory Chudnovsky,
who has been suffering
from myasthenia gravis, a
muscle-wasting and possi-
bly fatal disorder, for the
last 14 of his 25 years.
Since their application to
emigrate to Israel eight
months ago the family has
been subjected to severe
harassment. The NCSJ is
coordinating a major cam-
paign on behalf of the Chud-
novsky family.
Meanwhile, Senator Jack-
son sent a personal cable to
Leonid Brezhnev calling on
him on humanitarian
grounds to permit the Chud-
novsky family to emigrate
to Israel.
On July 23 Andrei Sakha-
rov said the 70-year-old par-
ents of this bedridden
mathematician, who have
applied to emigrate to Is-
rael, were beaten up on a
Kiev street.

According to Seymour D.
Reich, chairman of ADL's
fact finding committee, the
study—"International Zion-

by the Science Publishing
House—is "a modern echo
of the anti-Semitic forgery,

"What distinguishes this
new calumny from previous
Soviet works of the genre,"
Reich said, "is the free use
of the word 'Jew,' rather'
than 'Zionism,' in both the

Tass news agency. 'Zion-
