THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Lowest Ever Soviet Jewish Emigration Reported

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Charlotte Jacobson, chair-
man of the Soviet Jewry Re-
search Bureau of the Na-
tional Conference on Soviet
Jewry, reported that Jewish
emigration from the Soviet
Union hit its lowest
monthly figure in history as
only 81 Jews arrived in
Vienna in January.
.Canadian
Prime

Minister Pierre Elliott
Trudeau met in Ottawa
with Avital Shcharansky,
wife of prisoner of con-
science Anatoly
Shcharansky, and promised
her he will intervene with
Yuri Andropov, Soviet
Communist Party leader,
for the release of her hus-
band on humanitarian
grounds.

said that she had no inde-

her husband had ended his
hunger strike.
Prof. Irwin Cotler,
president of the Canadian
Jewish Congress, who has
been Mrs. Shcharansky's
defense counsel since her
husband was arrested more
than five years ago, told the
press conference that "de-
spite affirmations to the
contrary, Shcharansky con-
tinues his hunger strike and
is deprived of any contact
with his mother."

the Shcharansky matter, to
make a case in behalf of the
Soviet government.
In Washington, Der-
showitz predicted that there
will be "more and more"
Shcharanskys in the USSR
in the near future.
"The circle is closing on
Jews in the Soviet
Union," Dershowitz said
at the Union of Councils
for Soviet Jews fourth bi-
ennial congressional
briefing on Soviet Jewry.
The meeting was dedi-
cated to Shcharansky.
Dershowitz, who is on the
Union of Council's advisory
board, explained that there
is increasing discrimination
against Jews and increas-
ing anti-Semitism in the
USSR.
He said that anti-
Semitism is one of the
Soviets' major exports to the
Third World. Anti-Semitic
material is being produced
in 20 languages but particu-
larly Arabic, he said.
As discrimination and
anti-Semitism increase,
more Jews will want to emi-
grate from the USSR, Der-
showitz said. He predicted
that they will be refused
visas and will thus become
more militant and eventu-
ally find themselves in con-
flict with the authorities
and face imprisonment as
did Shcharansky and other
refusniks.
Mark Azbel, a physicist
and author of the au-
tobiographical, "Refus-
nik," said that Soviet
emigration figures are a
"barometer" for future
relations with the U.S. He
said the decrease in
emigration has in the
past signalled Soviet
moves such as the inva-
sion of Afghanistan.

the Soviet Union has turned
away from contacts with the
West at the same time as it
has "tightened the screws"
on Soviet Jews.

In a related development,
the Soviet Union has re-
cently published an
English-language booklet
called "Jews in the USSR"
which contains distortions
and misrepresentations of
the actual plight of Soviet
Jewry, according to the
