into Stalin's dungeons
shortly after Soviet forces
liberated Hungary in 1945.
The March 27 tribute was
co-sponsored by the New
York regional office of the
Anti-Defamation League of
Bnai Brith and the U.S.
Free Raoul Wallenberg
Committee.
A similar demonstration
took place simultaneously
in San Francisco. Presumed
dead for many years, it is
now believed that Wallen-
berg may still be a prisoner
somewhere in the Soviet
Union's "gulag ar-
chipelago" of prisons or
camps. If still alive he would
now be 68 years old.
Speaking at ADL
headquarters, Elizabeth
Moynihan, secretary of
the Wallenberg Commit-
tee, vowed to continueto
press the Soviet Union
for evidence of whether
or not Wallenberg is
alive. "Anyone who is
horrified by what the
Nazis did must pursue
this case as a matter of
conscience," she said.
The hour-long program
included a filmed television
report on the Wallenberg
case, remarks by represen-
tatives of the Swedish and
Israeli governments, city of-
ficials and community lead-
ers. Several attempts to
place a call to the Moscow
headquarters of the KGB,
the Soviet secret police,
went unanswered.
Agnes Adachi, a Hunga-
rian Jew who was saved by
Wallenberg and worked
with him to save fellow
Jews, remembered how the
young diplomat stayed up
nights to print Swedish
identification papers for
Jewish families. Wallen-
berg was planning to move
Hungary's Jews by train to
neutral Sweden. His efforts
also included placing Jews,
as Swedish subjects, in some

BETH SHALOM SERIES '80 PRESENTS
THE FIFTH IN THE SERIES OF
SUNDAY EVENING LECTURES

PROFESSOR JUNE SOCHEN,

Professor of History, Northeastern Illinois University
SUNDAY EVENING, APRIL 13, 1980 7:30 P.M.

Author of books and articles on women and ethnic
groups in the United States, including "Herstory: A
Woman's View of American History," "The New
Woman" and "Movers and Shakers: American
Women Thinkers and Activists." Education was at
the University of Chicago and Northwestern Uni-
versity. Recipient of several awards as an out-
standing teacher and scholar.

TOPIC: JEWISH AMERICAN
WOMEN: PAST & PRESENT

This lecture is being sponsored by the Max Chomsky Family
in Memory of Mr. Max Chomsky.
The public is invited at no charge.

40 houses he had set up as
Swedish "legations"
covered by diplomatic im-
munity.
The indoor program was
followed by a candlelight
procession to Dag Ham-
marskjold Plaza, opposite
the United Nations, where
the vigil was continued. At
the outdoor ceremony, let-
ters from Wallenberg to his
mother were read, as well as
messages from numerous
public officials.
Following the lead of
Governor Hugh Carey,
who designated last
Thursday as "Raoul Wal-
lenberg Day" in New
York, it was announced
that Governor Brendan
Byrne of New Jersey had
declared Yom Ha'shoah,
April 13, in honor of the
Swedish hero.
Sen. Jacob Javits (R-
N.Y.), in a message, said:
"With assemblies such as
this one, the pressure on
Soviet authorities to cast
light at long last on the dis-
appearance of history's true
heroes has grown to irresis-
tible force."
Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.)
stated in a message that the
vigil "will go far towards
focusing greater attention
on the many questions
which remain unresolved in
this matter." He called the
Soviet response that Wal-
lenberg is dead "non-
responsible to the facts of
the situation."
(Wallenberg, an honor
graduate from the Univer-
sity of Michigan College of
Architecture and Urban
Planning, is recognized
with a lecture series each
year given at the school in
his name.)
Mayor Edward Koch said:
"As long as there are people
anywhere who are op-
pressed, as long as there is a
memory of such oppression,
Raoul Wallenberg will
symbolize a defiant fight
against religious persecu-
tion and a battle against all
tyrants who would suppress
liberty and abolish justice."
The Mayor's office sub-
sequently announced it
would seek to rename a
park in honor of Raoul Wal-
lenberg.

Persian Bias
Called Historic

JERUSALEM (ZINS) —
A Hebrew University lec-
turer in Persian language
and history, Dr. Sara
Soroudi, says the virulence
of Persian anti-Semitism,
historically, is unmatched
anywhere else in the Mos-
lem world.
She said in the 16th Cen-
tury, Jews were regarded as
- infidels when the Safadis
assumed power and
synagogues were burned.
In the 18th Century, Jews
w-ire considered "profane,"
and were forbidden to walk
more quickly than Mos-
lems, eat fresh fruit, or go
out in the rain for fear that
Jews' "uncleanliness"
would be transmitted by the
rain water to their Moslem
neighbors.

KKK 'Religion'
Claims Jesus
Wasn't A Jew

METARIE, La. — The Ku
Klux Klan has spawned a
"new religion" whose prin-
ciple tenet is that Jesus was
not a Jew.
This so-called new reli-
gion is referred to by Klan
members as the Kingdom
Identity Movement and in
most instances, Klan lead-
ers are its ministers.
A growing number of
Klan members who feel hos-
tility towards Jews are join-
ing the movement to
rationalize their anti-
Semitism, according to an
article in the Jewish Post
and Opinion.
The Kingdom Identity
Movement also teaches that
the "Nordic peoples of
Europe are the biblical
tribes of Israel." Therefore,
Kingdom Identity ministers
hold "God's chosen people
were not the Jews, but
white Anglo-Saxons."
