Prisoner Alleges Deplorable Conditions for Observant Jews

An article in the May
issue of Fortune News, a
monthly newspaper for ex-
convicts, describes alleged
"Anti-Semitism in Federal
Prisons."

The article was written
by Marshall Zeidman, a
federal prisoner at the
Chicago Metropolitan Cor-
rectional Center.

Zeidman writes, inter
alia:
"I was originally in-
carcerated at the
Chicago MCC, where I
was introduced to the

U.S. Bureau of Prisons'
'kosher food program'.
At the time our meals
consisted of two eggs,
two hot dogs and about
four oz. of tuna per man
per day, which we pre-
pared ourselves.
"We ate at odd hours,
often being compelled to
wait as long as an hour and
a half for a staff member to
show up to let us into our
cooking area. And you can
tire quickly of eggs, tuna,
hot dogs, eggs, hot dogs,
tuna — day after day.
"Complaints to the food

service administrator pro-
duced a statement that he
just didn't given a damn —
until I threatened to talk to
friends on the Chicago
newspapers.
"Shortly afterwards we
began receiving kosher
chicken, hamburger meat
and bread. And I was
quickly shipped out to the
alleged camp at the Medical
Center for Federal Prison-
ers, at Springfield, Missouri
— where the real fun be-
gan!"
Zeidman alleges that

Harry Truman's Aid to Israel Founding
Hebrew University Symposium Topic

JERUSALEM — Presi-
dent Harry S Truman's con-
tribution to the establish-
ment of the state of Israel
was marked at the Hebrew
University of Jerusalem by
an international sym-
posium on "President Harry
S Truman — the Man, the
Statesman and his Role in
the Creation of Israel" and
the opening of a permanent
multi-media exhibition re-
lating to the Truman era.
The symposium on the
late -33rd President of the
United States at the univer-
sity's Truman Research In-
stitute opened on May 8,
which would have been
Harry Truman's 94th
birthday.
Chaired by university
President Avraham Har-
man, the opening ceremony
included greetings from
Deputy Prime Minister
Prof. Yigael Yadin, U.S.
Ambassador to Israel
Samuel Lewis and the
Chairman of the Truman
Institute's Board of Over-
seers Nathaniel L. Golds-
tein of New York.
In a keynote speech,
former Foreign Minister
Yigal Anon described the
foundations of United
States-Israel relations
and explored various di-
mensions of future rela-
tions as well as the role of
Israel in world politics.

Speakers included Prof.
Frank Freidel of Harvard
Universtiy; Prof. Richard
Kirkendall of Indiana Uni-
versity; Prof. Allan Weins-
tein of Smith College;
Clayton Fritchey, a former
member of the Truman ad-
ministration; Judge Mur-
ray I. Gurfein, presently a
member of the U.S. Court of
Appeals; Dr. Benedict K.
Zobrist, director of the
Harry S Truman Library;
journalist and author
Robert Donovan; Prof. Gab-
riel Cohen of Tel Aviv Uni-

tive of the Provisional Gov-
ernment of Israel to the U.S.
and former Hebrew Univer-
sity piesident; Dr. Shlomo

The permanent exhibi-
tion relating to the Truman

Cite DropsieChief

era, housed on the top floor
of the Truman Institute on
Mount Scopus is particu-
larly geared to young Is-
raelis who are unaware of
Harry Truman's involve-
ment in the establishment
of Israel, and for visitors
from the U.S. Jerusalem is
the only city in the world,
apart from Truman's
hometown of Independence,
Mo., to have a permanent
exhibition on him.
About 250 items, includ-
ing political cartoons, let-
ters and other memorabilia,
depict Harry Truman's
career from his time as a
haberdasher in Missouri
through his presidency and
emphasize his recognition
of Israel on the day it de-
clared its independence.
Part of the exhibition is
an audiovisual show which
includes a film biography
and a movie on Truman's
involvement with Israel en-
titled "At War With the Ex-
perts."

and prison adminis-
trators at the Springfield
facility deliberately
harassed him, repeated
anti-Semitic remarks,
stole his food or deliber-
ately contaminated it
with pork, locked him in
a walk-in freezer and in a
refrigerator and
threatened him.
He said in the article that
a civil rights suit is pending
against one of the adminis-
trators at the facility be-
cause of the abuse Zeidman
suffered.
Zeidman's complaints
were ignored, he wrote, and
led to his transfer to other
federal facilities with
equally bad results. At one
point he describes a
'punishment" bus trip
through the South instead
of a direct transfer back to
Chicago.
