his daughter, Kaplan was
again arrested.
The Swedish note also
contained more direct and
detailed evidence about
Wallenberg, a University of
Michigan graduate. Al-
though it relates to an ear-
lier period than Kaplan's
stay at the Butyrka in 1975,
it further -demolishes the
Soviets' claim that Wallen-
berg died in 1947. It came
from Abraham Kalinski,
who arrived in Israel in
1976. A former Polish offi-
cer, he had been arrested in
Moscow in 1944 and spent
15 years in Soviet prisons
and camps.
Kalinski's testimony says
Wallenberg was interned in
the Verchneuralsk Prison
in the Vhelyabinsk region
from the end of the 1940s
until 1953; from 1953 to
1955, he was in Alexan-
drovski Central Prison in
the Irkutsk region; in 1955
he was transferred to the
Vladimir Prison, where he
stayed- until the 1960s "in
cell 23, corpus two."
Exactly three weeks la-
ter, the Soviet Embassy
handed the Swedish
Foreign Ministry its reply
containing only three para-
graphs. It recalled the orig-
inal statement about Wal-
lenberg's death (issuqd 22
years ago by Andrei
Gromyko, the present
Soviet Foreign Minister)
and added:
"This conclusion was
definitely confirmed by
the findings of an exam-
ination of the informa-
tion supplied by the
Swedish government in
its request of Jan. 3, this
year. The assertions that
Raoul Wallenberg was in
the Soviet Union as re-
cently as 1975 are not in
accordance with the
facts."

A world-wide campaign is
taking issue with that
statement, led by Dr. and
Mrs. Thomas Lantos of
Alexandria, Va.
On March 18, the
Swedish newspaper Dagen s
Nyheter published a story
claiming that the U.S. as-
sisted Wallenberg's efforts
to rescue Hungarian Jews -
and that the U.S. offered to
intervene with the Russians
after the war but Sweden
turned down the U.S. offer.
According to Sven Strom-
berg, a correspondent for
Swedish Radio in London,
former U.S. Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger was
asked in 1973 by Wallen-
berg's mother to intervene
in the case. Stromberg says
Kissinger turned down the
request because he was
angered by Swedish criti-
cism of the U.S. war in Vie-

Israel Winner
in Song Contest

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Israel won for the second
consecutive year the
Eurovision song contest.
The winning song was "Hal-
lelujah," sung by 26-year-
old Gali Atari, who was ac-
companied by the Milk and
Honey group.
The Israeli song, with 125
points, beat out the Spanish
entry with 111 points and
the French which received
106. This means that Israel
has the right to host next
year's Eurovision contest.
However, it is :not clear
whether Israel will do so
since this year's contest cost
Israel Television about $1
million, a heavy drain on
the station's tight budget.
