THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Soviet Committee a Nega -tive Sign

LONDON — The new
Soviet Anti-Zionist Com-
mittee indicates a consider-
able hardening of the Soviet
position on Jewish emig-
ration and culture, and is an
integral part of the current

overall Soviet ideological
and political counter-
offensive against the U.S.
This conclusion is con-
tained in a study by Dr.
Howard Spier, research
officer at the Institute of

Jewish- Affairs in London
and assistant editor of
"Soviet Jewish Affairs."
The Soviet line on Jewish
emigration, expressed by
leading members of the
committee, is that the great

emigration of the last de-
cade is now at an end. It is
claimed that there is little
remaining demand for
emigration by Soviet Jews.
"One particularly dis-
turbing element of the
new hard-line approach
to Zionism," writes Dr.
Spier, "is the naming of
Jewish activists in the
press in a more clearly
systematic manner than
was previously the case.
Such references,
which are tantamount
to denunciations, are
clearly intended as warn-
ings that non-conformist
activities will no longer
be treated with relative
tolerance."
Examining both Soviet
and Western accounts of a
press conference given by
the Anti-Zionist Commit-
tee, Dr. Spier explains that
there was a serious dif-
ference of-opinion between
two committee members
over propaganda alleging
Zionist-Nazi collaboration.
The lawyer Samuil Zivs,
first deputy chairman of the
committee, felt himself
compelled to condemn this
kind of propaganda, while
Yuri Kolesnikov, the
Jewish author of anti-
Zionist novels - on this
theme, strongly supported
it.
As Dr. Spier says, Soviet
Jewish activists have
reacted swiftly and nega-
tively to the emergence of
the Anti-Zionist Commit-
tee. For example, a letter by
six Jewish activists to the
committee's chairman,
Col.-Gen. D.A. Dragunsky,
questioned his right to
speak on behalf of Soviet
Jews. .

A commission of promi,

to study what the organized
U.S. Jewish community did
or failed to do to save Euro-

Holocaust during the years
193-1945 made headlines

heated controversy.
Two weeks later, the
commission reformed
