The Israeli dancer pictured above depicts an as-
pect of the Bible in dance, the topic of an international
forum held in Jerusalem in August.

sagt is specific, geared to
the Israeli nation's history,
destiny, past and present."
This is the opinion of Giora
Manor, program director of
the First International
Seminar on the Bible in
Dance which was held in
Jerusalem in August.
The seminar is sponsored
by the Israel Center of the
International Theater In-
stitute (ITI), an organiza-
tion of world theaters; the
Israel Festival, an annual
program of theater, dance
and music programs held
during the summer; and the
Dance Library of Israel.
Manor, who came to Is-
rael in 1939 from Czechos-
lovakia, is a member of
Kibutz Mishmar Haemek
(located in the lovely Valley
of Jezreel, 19 miles south-
east of Haifa). As a kibutz
member, he has worked as a
theater director, journalist,
dance critic, Israel corre-
spondent for European and
American dance publica-
tions, editor of the Israel
Dance Annual and as cul-

tural page editor of the Is-
rael newspaper, Al
Hamishmar.
Barry Swersky, a
lawyer, has a very differ-
ent background. He came
to Israel in 1965 from
South Africa and is gen-
eral manager of the Bat
Dor Dance Company. He
is on the world executive
of the International The-
ater Institute and is
chairman of the dance
section.
Manor said that for many
years Swersky thought
about organizing an inter-
national conference on
dance, in Israel. A few years
ago the two of them dis-
cussed the idea and Manor
went home to do some re-
search. "Suddenly I hit upon
the idea of the Bible. In one
evening I had more than
200 titles of works on bibli-
cal themes.
"Except for Greek
mythology," he continues,
"no dramaturgical subject
in ballet and modern dance
provides such comparison of
choreographers at different
periods as the Bible."

Death Sentence
for Collaborator

NEW YORK — The
Communist Party daily
Pravda reports that An-
tonina Makrova, who was
called "Machine-gun To-
nya" during World War II
while she worked as a Nazi
executioner, has been sen-
tenced to death by a Soviet
appeals court.

A Soviet citizen, Mrs.
Makrova volunteered for
the executioner's role in re-
turn for favors from the
Nazis. She shot groups of
prisoners with a machine-
gun. When the Nazis re-
treated they left her behind.
When found by the Soviet
army she posed as a pris-
oner, soon married and
moved to Blyeorussia.
