Death Sentence for Georgian Jews la
Called 'Anti-Semitic' by Soviet Jews

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Death sentences imposed
earlier this month by a Uk-
rainian court in Donetsk on
four Georgian Jews was
ti
clearly an act of anti-
Semitism, a spokesman for
the "Shomer Achi Anochi"
(I Am My Brother's Keeper)
said in Jerusalem.
- The four condemned men
were among 56 persons,
non-Jews and Jews, who
worked in a textile factory
near Baku on the Caspian
Sea. They were tried on a
/Mies of "economic crimes,"
NI/Eluding a charge of hav-
ing stolen government
property.
Lea Slovin, a Russian
immigrant lawyer, told a
press conference in
Jerusalem that this was not
merely an "economic
crimes" trial but one aimed
directly at Jews. Non-Jews
in the trial who were ac-
cused of the same charge re-
ceived sentences of 10 or 15
years.
In New York the Stu-
dent Struggle for Soviet
Jewry and the Union of
Councils for Soviet Jews
reported that Sender
Levenson, a 30-year-old
prisoner of conscience
who was serving a six-
year term, has been re-
leased from a labor camp
after half his sentence
was completed.
Meanwhile, Soviet dissi-
dent leader Andrei
Sakharov said recently he
does not believe Western
nations should boycott the
1980 Moscow Olympics to
protest alleged human
rights violations in his na-
tion. He suggested that each
national team "adopt one
political prisoner" to help
publicize the situation.
In a related development,
Moscow attacked Sen. Ed-
ward-Kennedy last week for
hinting that his recent trip
to the Soviet Union could
help 18 Soviet families emi-

Differences
Ironed Out

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Prof. Raanan Weitz and
Matityahu Drobless, the
co-chairmen of the World
Zionist Organization's- set-
tlement department, have
reached an agreement on
the division of authority be-
tween them and will coop-
rate despite their political
ifferences.
The differences became
apparent last month when
Weitz published proposals
favoring the eventual estab-
lishment of a Palestinian
state alongside Israel.
Drobless, a member of
Likud, took strong excep-
tion.

cial Communist Party daily
Pravda did not name Ken-
nedy, but Western dip-
lomats said there was no
question it was aimed di-
rectly at him.
On his return from his
visit to the Soviet Union,
Kennedy said that 18
families previously de-
nied permission to emi-
grate would have their
petitions reviewed.
Pravda suggested that
the Senator was attempt-
ing to "pose as a cham-
pion of human rights."
It also was learned that
exiled Soviet Jewish dissi-
dent Dr. Joseph Begun was
tried. in Moscow recently.
His wife, Dr. Alla Drugova,
reported that despite his
failing health and bouts of
unconsciousness, Dr. Begun
was refused a recess from
the trial.
Soviet dissident Vladimir
Bukovsky, a recent inmate
of the Vladimir Prison,
called the Soviet Union's
most notorious, described
the conditions of the prison,
where dissident Anatoly
Shcharansky is interned.
There are no screens or
windows in the cells and
sometimes they house more
than three personS. There
are no toilets, only buckets
or holes, and the stench
comes back into the cell.
Food is pushed in to the
prisoners, and often is only
Watery soup or stale bread
and potatoes. The cells are
damp and there is no heat-

wooden boards. No reading
or writing materials are
given to the prisoners, and
medicines are lacking.
