For hundreds of Soviet
Jewish activists, arriving in
Israel is the end of one
struggle and the beginning
of another. They remain
tied to family loyalties that
do not allow them to rest
while loved ones and friends
in the USSR continue
struggling for the right to
emigrate.
"I won't say that we feel
guilty, because the real
guilty party is the Soviet
Union, which holds the
Jews hostage," says Dina
Beilin, 45, a contemporary
of Anatoly Shcharansky in
the fight for Soviet Jewish
emigration. "But all of us
former prisoners of Zion
and ex-refusniks now in Is-
rael know that someone
paid for our freedom. The
victims of the Soviet Jewish
emigration movement are
the Shcharanskys, the Ida
Nudels and the Joseph Be-
guns (who served or are
serving prison terms in
Russia, stemming from
their efforts towards
aliya),"
Mrs. Beilin was lucky be-
cause she was allowed out
with her family. However,
dozens of families, such as
the Shkolniks of the Uk-
raine, were split. Feiga
Shkolnik and her then
five-year-old daughter
Louisa, were allowed out 11
years ago, leaving her hus-
band Isaac behind in a
Soviet prison.

Mrs. Beilin spends
most of her spare time
working for Soviet
Jewry, from Israel. "We
are in the free world, with
the freedom of expres-
sion needed to show up
the Soviet system in all its
cruelty. So we are com-
pelled to find ways of ob-
taining information on
the refusniks and pri-
oners of Zion, in order to
bring it to the attention of
the west."

Mrs. Shkolnik is reluc-
tant to-discuss her consider-
able efforts on her hus-
band's behalf, for fear that
the Soviet authorities will
take revenge on him. But
she does bring his case be-
fore the media whenever
possible.
"Isaac was a simple metal
worker with no access to

state secrets," she main-
tains. "Yet the Soviets
charged him with spying
and sentenced him to seven
years in prison and are still
holding him under town ar-
rest. His only crime, was
trying to emigrate, learning
Hebrew, and loudly and
proudly proclaiming his
Judaism. He suffered in
prison, but was encouraged
by the hope of being allowed
out (of the USSR) at the end
of his sentence. Four years
later, the Soviets are still
denying him an exist visa
and he is very depressed."
The two women were
among the hundreds of
former refusniks and ex-
prisoners of Zion attending
the Third International
Conference on Soviet Jewry
last spring.

JERUSALEM — In May,
the Knesset paid tribute to
Raoul Wallenberg, the
Swedish envoy credited
with saving up to 100,000
Hungarian Jews from the
Nazis during World War II.
Wallenberg was taken
into custody by the Rus-
sians, who claim he died in
prison in 1947. Former Rus-
sian prisoners have tes-
tified, however, that Wal-
lenberg was seen in recent
years in Soviet prisons.
