Schroeter takes us from
the "Unknown Jewish
Nation" within the Soviet
Union to the Six-Day War
of June 1967, which
marked the beginning of
the Jewish renaissance
in the Soviet Union,
through to the Leningrad
hijacking trials in June
1970. With the author we
visit the major cities of
the Soviet Union:
• Kiev, and the 1968
trial
of
Boris
Kochubiyevsky, the first
hero , of the Jewish move-
ment;
• Leningrad, and the
stories of Hillel Butman,
David Chernoglaz, Zev
Mogilever, and many others
who began to seek theirs
Jewish heritage prior to the
Six-Day War, and spent
years in Siberian labor
camps because of their
quest;
• Riga, where Leon Uris'
"Exodus" became Our
Tanakh," where the young
Jews cleared and created a
memorial at Rumbuli
(where 25,000 Jews were
executed in early 1941 by
Germans and Latvians),
where the appearance of an
Israeli singer precipitated a
near riot, and where the
Leningrad hijacking plans
were first formulated.
• Moscow, where we
meet Yahov Kazahov
who was the first of many
Soviet Jews to renounce
their Soviet citizenship

ROME — This year's Eas-
ter mass by Pope John Paul
II concluded with holiday
greetings in 32 different
languages, including He-
brew.
The mass last Sunday
marked the first time a pope
has used Hebrew to express
Easter wishes. The pontiffs
appeal, attended by about
350,000 people, called on
the world to reject war and

forrnri ern

and to demand permis-
sion to emigrate to Israel.
We learn of difficulties in
producing Samizdat (un-
derground newspaper),
and we read the petitions
signed by many, protest-
ing Soviet violations of
their own laws in their
actions against their
Jewish citizens.
We learn why the highest
percentage of Jews allowed
to leave have been the proud
nationalistic Jews of Geor-
gia.
In Vilna, the Jerusalem of
the north, we attend the
trial of Simon Grilius, Oleg
Frolov, and the Vudha
brothers.
In every one of the 15 re-
publics of the USSR Schroe-
ter introduces the reader to
the leaders of the Jewish
movement. We read their
protests, we attend their
trials, we rejoice when they
receive their exit visa and
we suffer when they receive
. their refusals.
We also have the opper-
tunity to meet the early
leaders of the American
Soviet Jewry movement
Joel Sprayregen, a
Chicago attorney, Lou
Rosenblum, of Cleve-
land, and of course De-
troit's own Rae
Sharfman.
Leon Schroeter has pro-
duced a most significant
document in the dramatic
struggle of the Soviet Jew in
his attempt to escape from
bondage. The 400-plus

pages offer an insight into
man's never ending quest
for freedom. This book is
must reading for anyone in-
terested in recent Jewish
history.
