Shcharansky Gets First Visit in 18 Months

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Anatoly Shcharansky was
visited by his family at
Christipol prison last week,
for the first time in 18
months, the Student Strug-
gle for Soviet Jewry and the
Union of Councils for Soviet
Jews reported.
News of the visit by
Shcharansky's mother, Ida
Milgrom and his brother,
Leonid Shcharansky, was
obtained by telephone from
a family friend, Dina Beilin,
in Jerusalem. They were
able to speak with him for
two hours through a glass
partition, she said.
According to Beilin, she

was told by Mrs. Milgrom
that her son looks like "a
tiny old man and has lost all
his hair. His health is very
poor. Towards the end of his
110-day hunger strike in
January he weighed only 77
pounds and is today only a
little more than 110 pounds.
Shcharansky's fam-
ily also told Beilin that
"he is being deprived of
all his few rights as a
Soviet prisoner and is
treated as a hostage."
Shcharansky, who first
applied for an emigration
visa in 1973, is serving a
13-year prison term for al-
leged "treason" after he
campaigned to join his wife
Avital in Israel. He was sen-
tenced in July 1978.
Meanwhile, West . Ger-
man diplomats who accom-
panied Chancellor Helmut
Kohl-on his visit to Moscow
last week said that the
granting of exit visas to
ethnic minorities in the
Soviet Union, including
Jews and Germans, will de-
pend on the state of rela-
tions between the USSR
and the United States.
They said that the new
Soviet leadership considers
the question of exit visas to
be part of the "big game"
with the U.S. and predicted
that Moscow will severely
limit the departure of both
Jews and Germans unless
there is a major break-
through in relations with
Washington and an im-
proved understanding be-
tween East and West gen-
erally.
In a related develop-
ment, Secretary of State
George Shultz renewed
his promise to Avital
Shcharansky in
Jerusalem that the U.S.
government will con-
tinue to try to secure the
release of her husband,
Anatoly, from a Soviet
prison.
It also was learned that
84 Soviet Jewish families
now living in Israel sent an
open letter to Soviet leader
Yuri Andropov urging him
to let their loved ones emi-
grate to Israel.
A similar letter, refuting
claims made by a Soviet
Anti-Zionist Committee
that no more Jews wish to
leave the USSR and signed
by nine relatives of long-
term refusniks, was sent to
the United Nations Corn-
mission on Human Rights,
Secretary General Javier
Perez de Cuellar, and U.S.
Ambassador Jeane
Kirkpatrick.
In Jerusalem, Leon Dul-
zin has sharply criticized
World Jewish Congress
president Edgar Bronfman
for proposing that the U.S.
repeal the Jackson/Vanik
amendment to the 1974
Foreign Trade Act as a ges-
ture toward the Soviet
Union that might induce it
to ease restrictions on
Jewish emigration.
Dulzin, chairman of the
Jewish Agency and
World Zionist Organiza-
tion Executives, called
Bronfman's suggestion in
a recent op-ed page arti-
cle in the New York

Times "irresponsible and
seriously flawed."
Speaking at the weekly
meeting of the WZO Execu-
tive, Dulzin said proposals
such as Bronfman's were
especially grave in view of
the Soviet reaction to the in-
ternational conferenCe on
Soviet Jewry held in
Jerusalem earlier this year,
which was to set up the
"Anti-Zionist Committee of
the Soviet Public."
The amendment, co-
sponsored by Sen. Henry
Jackson (D-Wash.) and Rep.
Charles Vanik (D-Ohio)
linked most-favored nation
trade status for the Soviet
Union and other Com-
munist bloc Countries to
their emigration policies.
Bronfman argued that
repeal of the amendment
might be viewed as a good-
will gesture by the Soviet
authorities and induce
them to allow more Jews to
leave. Jewish emigration
from the USSR has been
slowed almost to a halt this
past year and many sources
have suggested that it will
increase only if U.S.-Soviet
relations improve.
--
Dulzin said he would
invite Bronfman to a ses-
sion of the Executive to
discuss the issue raised in
his article. - Jewish
Agency Treasurer Akiva
Lewinsky and Eli Tavin
agreed that the matter
should be discussed with
Bronfman and urged all
Jewish organizations to
adopt a unified line
toward the USSR.

clothing, jostled and
