THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Russian Anti-Semitism Analyzed

LONDON — The Insti-
tute for Jewish Affairs,
affiliated with the World
Jewish Congress, has issued
two research reports on the
Soviet Union and the
treatment of its Jews.
According to the reports,
the last year for Soviet
Jewry has been marked by a
curious combination of lib-
eral and repressive policies.
The high rate of Jewish
emigration has continued,
gestures and concessions
have been implemented in
`he Jewish cultural field
ind the alleged "Jewish
character" of the Auton-
omous Region of Birobid-
zhan was stressed in the
theoretical journal Kom-
munist.
The the IJA report said
all these policies are accom-

panied by negative de-
velopments.
Although emigration
has been growing, the
Soviet authorities are
now "seeking new meas-
ures with which to stem
the tide of emigration;"
improvements in cultural
and religious facilities
are real but they "help
the Soviets avoid the real
issues; providing cultural
facilities in the Russian
language" and the oppor-
tunity to learn Hebrew
for which there is a
growing demand among
the Jewish public."
Furthermore, the essen-
tially bogus stress on
Birobidzhan "may be used
to justify the infringement
of Jewish rights in the rest
of the USSR."
At the same time an in-
tensification of anti-Zionist,
anti-Semitic propaganda
and an increase in anti-
Jewish discrimination is
reported. Though counter-
productive in terms, of
stemming the tide of emig-
ration it helps the Soviet
authorities to counteract
the impact of emigration as
an oppositional factor" in
Soviet society.
A new Russian novel,
"Just Before the End" by
Valentin Pikul, portrays
Rasputin, the infamous
"holy man" who w fielded
great influence at the court
of the Czar, as a puppet of
the "Zionists." The book as-
serts that the "Zionists"
were largely responsible for

Russia's defeat in World
War I, and this appears to be
"a novel element in Soviet
propaganda."
Anti-Semitic.novels are
not new in the USSR but
Pikul's book, published
earlier this year in "Nash
Sovremennik," an impor-
tant Moscow periodical,
makes no serious attempt
to carry a Marxist-
Leninist message.
The IJA analysis links
present day anti-Zionism
and Russian anti-Semitism
of the past, and emphasizes
that the particular danger
of the novel lies in the utili-
zation of some of the anti-
Semitic themes found in the
works of the extremists
among Soviet anti-Zionist
propagandists.

Grenoble Center

PARIS (JTA) — A new
community center was in-
augurated Nov. 18 in the
city of Grenoble. The new
center, which includes a
cafeteria, meeting halls and
modern audio-visual
equipment, was built with
the city's financial help. The
Grenoble Municipal Coun-
cil will also pay part of the
Jewish center's operating
expenses.
Deputy Mayor Maurice
Verlhac said at the inaugu-
ration ceremony that the
city "has assumed the moral
obligation to help its Jewish
community run its com-
munal installations." There
are 8,000 Jews in the city.
