Mitterrand Says He'll Intercede
on Behalf of Shcharansky

PARIS (JTA) — French
President Francois Mitter-
rand has promised to inter-
cede with Soviet authorities
on behalf of Jewish prisoner
of conscience Anatoly
Shcharansky who began an
indefinite hunger strike on
the eve of Yom Kippur.
Government sources said
that Mitterrand was "de-
eply moved" by the plea of
Shcharansky's friends in
France and also fully
realized the "symbolic im-
portance" of the case.
The president last week
met with some of
Shcharansky's supporters,
a group of scientists and in-
tellectuals led by math-
ematician Laurent
Schwartz, who described in
detail the condition of
Shcharansky's imprison-
ment, his hunger strike and
his rapidly deteriorating
health.
Several French politi-
cal parties, including the
Socialists, the Gaullists
and the main trade
unions, have appealed to
Mitterrand to inform the
Soviet Union of France's
concern about
Shcharansky.
The Catholic Church and
the Protestant Federation
joined France's chief rabbi
in asking for the French
government's intervention
on the Jewish prisoner's be-
half.
At the same time, the
Communist Party Secre-
tary Gen. Georges Marchais
announced that he is "fully
conscious" of Shcharansky's
serious condition and said
that he and the party are
acting on behalf of
Shcharansky.
It is believed that Mar-
chais had personally ap-
pealed to Soviet President
Leonid Brezhnev, warning

him that the Shcharansky
case is seriously harming
the Communist cause in
France and in the rest of
Western Europe.
Meanwhile, Soviet
human rights advocate
Andrei Sakharov has ap-
pealed to Pope John Paul
II, Italian Communist
Party leader Enrico Ber-
linguer and Mitterrand to
assist in saving
Shcharansky's life.
In a related development,
a fast in solidarity with
Shcharansky ended in New
York last Friday after six
days.
The fast was held in front
of the Soviet Mission to the
United Nations by students
and faculty members from
Yeshiva Yeshiva Univer-
sity and Stern College.
Meanwhile, the SSSJ re-
ported that the • Canadian
Parliament passed a resolu-
tion in support of
Shcharansky last week. The
measure was sponsored by
former Foreign Minister
Flora MacDonald.

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Al-
though still not passed by
the theater and film censor-
ship board, Hanoch Levin's
controversial play "The
Patriot" was staged at the
Neve Zedek Playhouse last
week — but without the ac-
tors speaking the lines the
censor wants deleted.
But the audience knew
exactly what the censor
wanted to cut. The theater
director stepped onto the
stage at two points in the
satirical cabaret-type prod-
uction as the actors fell si-
lent, to announce: "And
here the censor deleted the
following . . ."
The management de-
cided to stage the show in
this manner after a meet-
ing of the censorship
board was postponed.
In Jerusalem, Mayor
Teddy Kollek and the
Jerusalem Theater have re-
jected a demand by the

Jerusalem Religious Coun-
cil that they halt the pre-
sentation in the capital' of
another controversial play
— the Haifa Theater prod-
uction of Yehoshua Sobol's
"Soul of A Jew," depicting
the last hours of Otto
Weininger, a Jewish anti-
Semite who committed
suicide in Austria in 1903 at
the age of 23.

`Censored' Play Is Staged

Two months ago, mem-
bers of a delegation she

as they attempted to visit a

SSSJ reported.
It also was learned that
a five-member Dutch
delegation visited the
Soviet Ambassador in
The Hague last week to
ask for visas to visit
Shcharansky for
humanitarian reasons.
They were turned down
on grounds that convicted
spies may not receive vis-
itors from abroad.
In Geneva, meanwhile,
three Swiss groups sent
messages to Soviet
President Leonid Brezhnev
expressing concern that
Shcharansky's hunger
strike would cost him his
