E.German y and Human. Rights

.

BY WARREN FREEDMAN

East Germany. a very
repressive regime, has
been restive since August.
1975 fcllowing the signing of
the Helsinki accords and
the emphasis on detente.
The result has been a grow-
in6 dissident problem be-
cause of the violation of
basic human rights.
There are about 5.000 po-
litical prisoners in East Ger-
many today. The govern-
ment denied the return
from West Germany of folk
singer Wolf Biermann. and
this started a chain of mass
protests : and dissident pro-
fessor of physics HaVemann
has recently been placed
under house arrest.
Indeed the continued vio-
lation of human rights by
the East German Govern-
ment shows that since Au-
gust, 1975. 100.000 East Ger-
mans have applied for per-
mission to leave East Ger-
many. But after the
government decided to
clamp down on dissident ap-
plications for exit visas.
less than 500 East Germans
made applications per
month.

Jewish Education
Has Lasting Value

COLLEGE STUDENTS

secondary schooling has a
"positive residual effect"
on the way adults live Jew-
ishly and on the values they
consider important in rais-
ing their families, accord-
ing to a wide-ranging sur-
vey initiated and sponsored
by the Committee- on Jew-
ish Education of the Feder-
ation of Jewish Agencies of
Greater Philadelphia
(FJA).
The pioneering survey—
the first of its kind ever at-
tempted in the United
States—concluded that, in
an overwhelming number
of cases, intensive Jewish
education does indeed in-
crease Jewish commitment
in later life.
This increased com-
mitment is reflected on
every level—personal obser-
vance, synagogue and or-
ganizational membership
and activity, ties to Israel
and personal perceptions of
the importance of Jewish
values on family life and
lifestyles.
In addition, less inter-
marriage was found among
those whose education was
intensively Jewish—and
they consider the issue to
be of greater importance.

Today emigration from
East Germany is impos-
sible. and every applicant
for an exit visa is officially
told that he will lose his job
and even go to jail if he
complains publicly. Only
pensioners and extreme
hardship cases are allowed
to leave for the West today.
The number of illegal emi-
grants from East Germany
has been increasing. In 1975
there were 6,011 illegal emi-
grants and__ in recent
months that figure has been
surpassed. The East Ger-
man government in April
1976 began extending the
physical limits of the Berlin
Wall. and there has been an
increase in the number of
indiscriminate shootings at
border crossings.
One of the most vicious
East German government
practices is to put up for
adoption the children of
those parents who flee to
the West. The empathy of
the West German govern-
ment prompted discreet ne-
gotiations with East Ger-
many so as to bring about
the reunification of 1,393
children with their families
in the past five years.
While East Germany in-
sists that the free move-
ment of persons and the
free flow of information are
not rights, but privileges to
be conferred by the East
German government, the
fact remains that the Hel-
sinki accords have given
hope to the people of East
Germany as an appeal to
their own government.

Ancient Yeshiva
Found in France

re-
NEW YORK—The
mains of what may have
been one of Europe's oldest
yeshivot have apparently
n uncovered in excava-
tions in Rouen in Northern
France.
According to the New
York Times, the discovery
and location of the struc-
ture, a large Romanesque
building dating from the
11th or 12th Centuries, had
been predicted by an Ameri-
can specialist in Hebrew
and Judeo-Arabic studies,
Prof. Norman Golb of the
University of Chicago, who
reached his conclusions
from a study of medieval
manuscripts.
When the building was
unearthed, scholars thought
it to be a synagogue, but
when they found there was
no niche for a Torah, they
supported Prof. Golb's con-
tention that it was a ye-
shiva.

`James Last Plays Stolz'
Best-Selling Record in Europe

From Vienna comes a
new record whose tunes are
certain to delight and to
capture the admiration of
music lovers.
James Last Plays Rob-
ert Stolz, - the title of the
new LP record, justly links
the names of two great mu-
sicians : one is the inter-
preter, the other the com-
poser.

-

The late Robert Stolz's
name has been perpetuated
among the great of modern
times. It is no wonder that
a young modernist who has
gained wide fame in the
music world should have de-
voted himself to produce
one of his best recordings,
that James • Last should
have added glory to the
memory of Robert Stolz.
The new record is James
Last's modern inter-
pretation of Robert Stolz's
works. The remarkable ar-
rangements from 22 of
Stolz's songs include:
"Salome" ( - Romeo"),
`Two Hearts in Waltz-

ROBERT STOLZ
time," and songs from the
"White Horse Inn."
As the recipient of 129
Golden Discs during the
past decade, James Last
came to the Stolz tradition
with a remarkable record
that is now enhanced by his
"James Last Plays Robert
Stolz. - which has become a
best seller throughout Eu-
rope and is now being in-
troduced in this country.

Ex-Nazi Jailed for Killing Jews

BONN (JTA)—A Ham-
burg judge imposed a four-
year prison sentence on Ger-
hard Maywald, a former SS
officer found guilty of com-
plicity in the murders of 320
Jews at the Jungfernhof
camp near Riga in Febru-
ary 1942.
The victims. mostly el-
derly and infirm inmates.
were selected by Maywald
for shooting, according to
the charges. An earlier in-
dictment for murder as
well as complicity was
dropped by the prosecution
after the judge ruled that
there was insufficient evi-
dence.
The case against May-
wald, now. 64,_ had been
under investigation for the

past 15 years. The judge ex-
plained the -light sentence
on grounds that the accused
was penalized during that
perior. The judge also as-
serted that Maywald was
not a Jew-hater although
his superior officer was
known to be.
However. the defendant's
not guilty plea was re-
jected. The judge said May-
wald could not claim that
he was forced to carry out
orders because he could
have asked for transfer to
another post, knowing that
staff officers at Jungfernhof
were expected to take part
in the shooting of Jews.
About 30.000 Jews were
shot there in the summer of
1941.

U.S.-- Israel
Tourism Is Up

NEW YORK—Tourism
from the United States to Is-
rael for the first six months
of 1977, is 21 percent ahead
of 1976, according to Israel
Zuriel, Israel commissioner
for tourism in North Amer-
ica..
Some 126,000 Americans
have visited Israel so far
this year, compared with
104,000 in the same period
of 1976.
"Almost 30 percent of all
tourists to Israel are Ameri-
cans." Zuriel added. "Dur-
ing the first half of the year
almost 460.000 tourists vis-
ited the country, and 1977 is
projected to be Israel's best
year ever for tourism."

Sir Zelman, 57, is vice-
chancellor of the University
of Queensland, Brisbane, a
former dean of law at the
University of Melbourne,
and has taught at Harvard
and Oxford Universities.
He replaces Sir John
Kerr whose surprise resig-
nation was announced after
serving only three years of
the designated five-year
term allotted to the head of
state.
Sir Zelman is the second
Jew, after Sir Isaac Isaacs
in the 1930s, to hold the of-
fice. Sir Zelman was Sir
Isaac's biographer.
