munity.

At Ein Shams Univer-
sity, the group met with
the dean of the faculty of
humanities, as well as
with the chairman and
faculty members of the
Hebrew Department.
Some 100 students study
in the department, and
the other large univer-
sities — Cairo, El Azhar,
and Alexandria — also
have Hebrew depart-
ments. "We met several of
the doctoral students and
some expressed an inter-
est in coming to Israel to
study. Masses of students
gathered around us,
many demonstrating

warmth, and we felt no
expression whatever of
hostility. We were most
impressed by those who
knew Hebrew."

Many of the Egyptians

pointed out the distinctive-
ness of Egyptian civiliza-
tion and culture from the
general Arab culture, and
expressed their satisfaction
at putting an end to hos-
tilities. Many remembered
Jews they had known 30
years ago. "But the general
feeling when seeking out
the Jewish community of
Egypt," says Prof. Gil, "is
that of a formerly strong
Diaspora community which
no longer exists. This, on
the one hand, is a sobering
and sad reflection. On the
other hand, the redeeming
feature is that it is a Jewish
community alive and thriv-
ing in Israel."

dead but without providing
any proof. Von Dardel told
the press conference that
there is "almost a bullet-
proof case" that Wallenberg
was alive "as late as 1959"
and that there is a strong
possibility that he is alive
now.

Ms. Biorck-Kaplan said
that because Wallenberg
had initially gone to
Budapest at the request
of the U.S. War Refugee
Board, "we feel it is an
American responsibility"
to determine what has
happened to Wallenberg,
a University of Michigan
graduate, and that the
only way to help free the
diplomat is "by putting
public pressure on." She
said the committee plans
to set up local committees
throughout the United
States.

Friedman said that the
Swedish government had a
"special obligation to do ev-
erything we can" and that
the Swedish government
has on many occasions
raised the issue with the
Soviet government but re-
ceived "no satisfactory
clarification." He declined
to elaborate.

The Jewish community of
Stockholm packed the
synagogue of the Swedish
capital Jan. 13 to pay hom-
age to Wallenberg.
An audience of more
than 800 heard the
Bishop of Stockholm and
Bruno Kaplan, president
of the Stockholm Jewish
community, describe
Wallenberg's exploits
while a diplomat in
Budapest and the mys-
tery which has sur-
rounded his fate since his
arrest by the Russians in
1945.
The meeting, which coin-
cided with the 35th an-
niversary of Wallenberg's
arrest, launched a fund for a
scholarship in his name at
the Weizmann Institute in
Rehovot, Israel.
Among the congregation
was Mrs. Nina Lagergren,
half-sister of Wallenberg,
who is spearheading the in-
ternational campaign for
his release. Members of the
diplomatic corps were also
present, including repre-
sentatives of Israel, France
and Argentina.
Per Anger, a senior
Swedish diplomat who
worked closely with Wal-
lenberg in Budapest, said he

berg, who would now be 67
years old, is still in Soviet
captivity.
New light on what actu-
ally happened to Wallen-
berg immediately after his
incarceration in Moscow's
Lubyanka Prison may be
shed later this month when
the Swedish government re-
leases the first part of its
huge dossier on the case.
