TEL AVIV (JTA) —
Asher- Hanukaiev, a recent
immigrant from the Soviet
Union, claims he met and
spoke with missing Swedish
diplomat Raoul Wallenberg
in a Sverdlovsk prison more
than 10 years ago. He said
Wallenberg told him he was

arrested because he had
helped save Jews.

Wallenberg was sent to
Budapest during World
War II on a special diploma-
tic mission. He is credited
with saving the lives of
thousands of Hungarian
Jews by giving them shelter
at the Swedish Embassy
and issuing documents that
enabled them to avoid de-
portation and almost cer-
tain death in Nazi concen-
tration camps.

Wallenberg was ar-
rested when the Red
Army entered Budapest
in 1945 and has not been

heard from since. The
Soviet authorities claim
he died in prison more
than 30 years ago and
strenuously deny that he
may still be alive. But
over the years, former
inmates of Soviet prisons
claimed to have seen him.

Hanukaiev, visiting
friends in Beersheba last
week, told them he spent
four days with Wallenberg
in a Sverdlovsk prison cell
in March 1972. He said,
"Wallenberg lay then on a
stretcher and he told me he
had stomach trouble," ac-
cording to a report in a
Beersheba newspaper.

Guide Book to Soviet Prisons

NEW YORK — Avraham
Shifrin, former Russian
academic who was sen-
tenced to death and man-
aged to escape from a Soviet
prison camp, has written
"The First Guidebook to
Prisons and Concentration
Camps of the Soviet Union"
(Bantam) as his way of wit-
nessing and calling to in-
ternational attention a
penal system in which he
claims 60 million human
beings have perished in the
past 60 years.
It is actually a guide to
2,000 prisons in the Soviet
Union which gives ad-
dresses, directions, descrip-
tions and contains 170 maps
including one of the entire
country with dots depicting
the location of these camps.
Also included are photo-
graphs and drawings as
well as the names of pris-
oners and of guards. It
covers a broad variety of
prisons — women's, chil-
dren's (although the Soviets
deny that any children are
incarcerated), psychiatric
prisons and extermination
camps.

WJC Leader Bronfman Calls
Israel-Diaspora Ties Strained

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
"The ties between Israel
and the -Diaspora — as per-
manent as they are — are
more strained today than at
any other time in the his-
tory of the Jewish state," ac-
cording to Edgar Bronfman,
president of the World
Jewish Congress.
"To deny this is to bury
our heads in the sand, thus
leaving our backs exposed,"
Bronfman warned in an ar-
ticle published in the
Jerusalem Post.
Bronfman posed ques-
tions to which he said he
was "not sure" he had the
answers "but I know they
need to be asked." They re-
lated mainly to Israel's
policies on the West Bank.

"Should we not ques-
tion the censoring of
speech in the territories,
even if it is polemical and
behind it may be the aim
to destroy?" he wrote.
"Are we not in danger of
a more fundamental de-
struction by denying the
basic freedoms to any-
one?"

Referring to the "tradi-
tional Jewish right to dis-
sent," the WJC leader casti-
gated the use of such terms
as "fascist," "traitor," "blood
libel," "enemy of the Jews,"
"anti-Semite," "jewish
self-hatred" or "new
Holocaust" in the internal
debate going on in Israel
and in the Diaspora.
He stated in that connec-
tion that to his "certain
knowledge" there are "few if
any American Jewish lead-
ers who do not find some
merit" in President
Reagan's Middle East peace
initiative.
"Are Jews in the Dias-
pora, as well as many Jews
in Israel to be excommuni-
cated for holding and ex-
pressing these views?" he
asked. The Reagan pro-
posals, rejected by Israel,

EDGAR BRONFMAN

call for a self-governing
Arab entity on the West
Bank and Gaza Strip in
association with Jordan but
reject a Palestinian state.

"The central problem
before us as Jews" is
"what kind of Israel do
we sant," ronfman stated.
"Are we headed on a
course that will lead us to
a binational state, to an
Israel diminished in its
Jewish quality?"

Bronfman also implicitly
critized the Israel govern-
ment's close ties with dic-
tatorial regimes abroad.
"we must also consider the
Jewish attitude toward
general global problems of
which we are a part. Are we
to sacrifice our commit-
ments to human rights and
support tin horn dictators
for the sake of political
expediency?" he asked.
Referring to the dearth of
aliya, Bronfman asked:
"Why do we not commit
greater resources to having
our children visit and possi-
bly gain education here (in
Israel). Without them there
may be no future for the
Jewish people or for
Zionism itself."

Auschwitz Guard to Be Deported

CHICAGO — A German
citizen who was a Nazi
guard at Auschwitz and
Birkenau has agreed to be
deported from the U.S.
Hans J. Lipschis, a 63-
year-old retired factory
worker in Chicago, was ac-
cused of participating in the
murder of millions of pris-
oners in the concentration
camps.
Allan A. Ryan, director of
special investigations for
the U.S. Justice Depart-
ment, said that Lipschis
admitted his guilt by decid-
ing not to contest the
charges.
A native of Lithuania,
Lipschis served in the SS
Death's Head Battalion at
Auschwitz and Birkenau
from 1941 to 1945.

The West German con-
sul in Chicago assured
the Justice Department
that his country would
accept Lipschis. There
are no charges against
Lipschis pending in
Germany.
The Justice Department
asked for Lipschis' deporta-
tion the grounds that he

concealed his Nazi past
when he entered the U.S.
after World War II.
The department won a
similar concession from

RoManian Archbishop Val-
erian Trifa of Grass Lake
Mich. in October, but has
found no country willing to
accept Trifa.

Labor Voters Prefer Navon

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Labor Party voters have
shown a marked preference
for President Yitzhak
Navon over former Premier
Yitzhak Rabin as their can-
didate for prime minister in
the next Knesset elections,
according to the results of a
poll published last week.
Shimon Peres, chairman of
the Labor Party, ran a poor
third.
But Rabin topped Navon
in a poll of the general pub-
lic. Both polls, conducted by
the Pori organization, were
based on a cross-section of
1,200 voters. Among Labo-
rites, 35 percent favored
Navon against 22 percent
for Rabin. But among voters
for all parties, Rabin was
the choice of 34 percent to 31
percent for Navon.
The pollsters broke down
the results among general

YITZHAK NAVON

voters according to social
and ethnic groupings. They
found that better educated
voters in the higher social
strata tended to favor
Navon more than the less
well educated and the less
well-to-do.

Don't fall into the vulgar
idea that mind is a ware-
house, and education but a
process of stuffing it full of
goods.
