first moved to revoke her
U.S. citizenship.
Ryan entered the U.S. in
April 1959 as the wife of an
American, Russell Ryan,
who met her while he was a
construction worker in
West Germany. She became
a citizen in January 1963.

The Justice Department
case was based on her con-
cealment, when she applied
for citizenship, of the fact
that an Austrian court and
convicted her in 1949 of tor-
turing and mistreating con-
centration camp inmates.

Orthodox Urge Rabbis to
Reach Beyond Synagogue

SPRING GLEN, N.Y.
(JTA) — Two leading Or-
thodox rabbis, asserting
that the synagogue was
weakening as an institution
in American Jewish life, de-
clared that rabbis must as-
sert their influence not only
in the synagogue but also in
the general Jewish commu-
nity to help make the
synagogue once again "the
dominant force" for Ameri-
can Jewry.
Dr. Norman Lamm,
president of Yeshiva Uni-
versity, and Rabbi Sol Roth,
president of the Rabbinical
Council of America, called
on fellow rabbis to become
more involved in more sig-
nificant ways in those
Jewish community institu-
tions which have become
strong forces in the Jewish
community such as the fed-
erations.
They spoke at a session of
the 45th annual convention
of the Rabbinical Council,
attended by some 500
member rabbis.
Meanwhile, declaring
that the college campus is
"the disaster area' for
mixed marriages and as-
similation, the president
of the Rabbinical Council
of America announced a
major move to reach out
to college groups and

She was sentenced at that
time to three years' impris-
onment. She also failed to
note on her application that
she had been a member of
the Nazi SS.
According to the Justice
Department, had those facts
been known she would have
been denied admission to
the U.S. for permanent re-
sidence and denied
naturalization.
Ryan's trial, which
began in New York in
1972, ended the following
year with the revocation
of her citizenship and the
opening of deportation

offer them advice and
support to strengthen
Jewish life in the univer-
sities.
Rabbi Roth told the con-
vention that the Rabbinical
Council would sponsor
"Yavneh," a college campus
organization comprised of
Orthodox Jewish young
people.
On a related develop-
ment, leading Orthodox
rabbi Rabbi Walter
Wurzburger, past president
of the Rabbinical Council of
America, asserting that Or-
thodox Judaism is the fas-
test growing Jewish reli-
gious movement, declared
that it was "high time" that
Orthodoxy abandon a "state
of siege" mentality which he
said "may have been appro-
priate for an era when Or-
thodoxy had to adopt a de-
fensive stance because it
was widely dismissed as an
obsolete religion — al-
legedly incompatible with
the spirit of modernity."

Camp David
Accords Backed
by Mitterrand

PARIS (JTA) — French
President Francois Mitter-
rand backed U.S. peace ef-
forts in the Middle East and
said the European commu-
nity should help Washing-
ton's search for a solution.
Speaking at a European
Economic Community
summit meeting in Luxem-
bourg, the French leader
stressed the 12-month old
European initiative should
not be considered as the sole
solution to the Middle East
problems and advocated the
U.S. styled step-by-step ap-
proach instead.
Meanwhile, Dutch
Foreign Minister Christoph
Van der Klaauw said that
the European initiative in
the Middle East can proceed
alongside the Camp David
accords and not in conflict
with it.

Consul Named

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Yoram Ben-Ze'ev, one of the
Israeli Foreign Ministry's
up-and-coming diplomats,
has been named consul in
charge of information for
the United States west coast
area. He will be based at the
Consulate-General in Los
Angeles:

proceedings. A warrant
of the West German Fed-
eral Republic signed by a
Duesseldorf judge in
March 1973 was trans-
mitted to the Justice De-
partment and she was
subsequently extradited
to stand trial there.
The second-longest prison
sentence pronounced by
Judge Bogen on Tuesday
was 12 years for Hildegard
Laechert, 61, who ,was
known to Maidanek in-
mates as "Bloody Brigitta."
Hermann Hackmann, 67,
the former deputy camp
commandant got 10 years;
former SS Corporal Emil
Emil Laurich, eight years;
Heinz Villain, six years;
former SS Sgt. Fritz Pet-
rick, four years; former Lt.
Arnold Strippel, 3 1/2 years;
and Thomas Ellwanger,
three years. Defandant
Heinrich Groffmann was
acquitted.
Leaders of American
Jewish Organizations ex-
pressed satisfaction at the
Dusseldorf verdict.
Dr. Daniel Thursz, execu-
tive vice president of Bnai
Brith International, de-
scribed his feelings as "not
joy, exhiliration or revenge

— it's justice."
Several survivors inter-
viewed by the New York
Times expressed disap-
pointment that stiffer sen-
tences were not given out.
Elliot Welles, a survivor
and consultant to the
Anti-Defamation League of
Bnai Brith, said Mrs.
Laechert should have re-
ceived a life sentence and
that the lesser sentences for
others did not fit their
crimes.
