THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Number of Jewish Students Wallenberg Road
TORONTO (JTA) —
Reported Dropping in USSR Raoul
Wallenberg, credited

LONDON (JTA) — The
number of Jewish students
at Moscow's institutions of
higher education is roughly
half what it was 10 years
ago, says a report by the In-
stitute of Jewish Affairs
(IJA), research arm of the
World Jewish Congress.
Analyzing the figures,
Dr. Lukas Hirszowicz,
senior research officer, says
that although demographic
decline and the age
structure of Soviet Jewry
partly explain the fall, the
figures "certainly provide
statistical evidence that
discrimination is also a
cause."
The fall in numbers
paralleled the decline of the
Soviet Jewish student popu-
lation as a whole.
Hirszowicz estimates the
1980 figure for all USSR
Jewish students at 50-
55,000, compared with al-
most 112,000 in 1968-1969.
The Soviet Jewish
population declined by
15.8 percent and by 13.2
percent in the Russian
Federated
Soviet
Republic
Socialist
(RSFSR), which includes
Moscow, in the period be-
tween the census of 1970
and 1979.
But in what the IJA calls
a roughly comparable
period, Moscow Jewish stu-
dents declined by almost 41
percent, "about three times

VIENNA (JTA) — Forty-
four years after the Nazis
closed down the first Jewish
museum in the world, built
in Vienna at the end of the
last century, a new Jewish
museum was opened last
month in Austria's east-
ernmost province of
Burgenland.
The Austrian Jewish
Museum opened with a
large exhibition called
"1,000 years of Austrian
Jewry."
The museum, which
was opened by Hertha
Firnberg, Austrian
minister for science and
research, came into
existence through active
lobbying by the Associa-
tion for the Jewish Aust-
rian Museum, a group
closely linked with the
institute for Judaic
Studies at the University
of Vienna.
Located within the old
Jewish ghetto of Eisenstadt,
capital of Burgenland prov-
ince, the museum was fi-
nanced by the Austrian
government and by the
country's nine provinces.

Visa Rejected

TEL AVIV — Lebanon's
Christian militia leader
Saad Haddad has been re-
fused a visa for a visit to the
U.S., according to an Israel
military official.
The U.S. State Depart-
ment rejected Haddad's re-
quest on the grounds that he
did not represent any rec-
ognized political authority
in Lebanon, the Israeli offi-
cial said.

the decline of the general
Soviet Jewish population."
On the other hand, the
number of Jews in specialist
education did not decline in
the 1970s at the same rate
as those in higher educa-
tion.
Finally the report shows
that in the USSR as a whole,
the Jews were the only na-
tionality other than the
Georgians to suffer an abso-
lute decline in the number
of students in higher educa-
tion.
In Geneva the Inter-
governmental Committee
for Migration reported
that a total of 182 Jews
left the Soviet Union dur-
ing the month of June, of
whom 58 went to Israel.
It also was learned that
Ida Nudel, the Jewish emig-
ration activist who returned
to Moscow recently after
serving a four year sentence
of internal exile in Siberia,
moved to Riga, the Student
Struggle for Soviet Jewry
and the Union of Councils
for Soviet Jews reported.
Nudel, who owns a flat in
a Moscow cooperative, indi-
cated she was not making
the move voluntarily.

with saving more than
20,000 Jews in Hungary
during World War II, was
honored when the city of
North York named a road in
his honor.
