Jewry (GNYCSJ).
After Godyak, a 42-year-
old Moscow physicist, first
submitted his application
for an exit visa to Israel in
1979, he was promptly dis-
missed from his job because
of his "anti-Socialist act" of
desiring to reunite with
relatives in Israel.
In 1981, Godyak and his
wife Etalina, whose parents
live in Israel, were refused
exit visas on the grounds of
"regime" considerations, in
spite of the fact that
Godyak's work had never
involved "secrets," the con-
ference reported.
Meanwhile, Boris Be-
gun, son of prisoner of
conscience Iosif Begun,
has been expelled from
the Moscow Institute in
which he was a graduate
student. The announced
reason for his expulsion
was his absence from too
many classes last semes-
But according to the
GNYCSJ, the action was
clearly intended to punish
the younger Begun for his
efforts to secure his father a
lawyer and to help with his
defense last fall. Iosif Begun
was convicted in October



1983, and is now serving a

Fradkova, 36, had been
force-fed in a Leningrad
hospital since she began her
strike on Dec. 26.

According to the NCSJ,
she first applied for an
exit visa in 1978, but was
refused because Soviet
authorities claimed that
her father was engaged
in security work, as the

bureau. The NCSJ noted,
however, that Fradko-
va's parents had di-
vorced when she was six
months old and that she
has never had close con-
tact with her father.
Fradkova was graduated
in 1968 from Leningrad
University with a degree in
mathematical linguistics.
After she was first refused
an exit visa in 1978 she
reapplied again at various
times, but was refused each
time. She protested by stag-
ing hunger strikes.
In Washington, three
prominent non-Jewish
United States Congressmen
advised more than 600 col-
lege students gathered in
Washington to lobby on be-
half of Soviet Jewry that
their efforts are vital to the
success of their cause and
important to America's pol-
icy on human rights.
The Congressmen, Sen.
Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) and
Dennis DeConcini (D-Ariz.)
and Rep. Jak Kemp (R-
N.Y.), addressed the eighth
annual International Stu-
dent Solidarity Day or-
ganized by the Student Co-
alition for Soviet Jewry and
sponsored by the Bnai Brith
Hillel Foundations and
other Jewish groups. Most
of the students are members
of their campus Bnai Brith
Hillel Foundations.
Congressman William
Broomfield (R-Mich.),
meanwhile, appealed in a
letter to President Re-
agan for continued ef-
forts by the U.S. on behalf
of Soviet Jewry.
In his letter to the
President, Broomfield
stated in part:
"The issues of emigration
and human rights should
remain high on the agenda
in all relevant forums, in-
cluding the Conference on
Security and Cooperation in
Europe's follow-up meet-
ings and the United Nations
Commission on Human

"The rapidly deteriorat-
ing situation, however,
indicates that new avenues
must be explored to
ameliorate the plight of
Jews in the Soviet Union.
We must encourage further
participation of our West-
ern allies and neutral and
non-aligned nations in this
"America has long been a
symbol of freedom for the
oppressed peoples of the
world. It is important that
we reaffirm our commit-
ment to this basic principle
at this critical time for
Soviet Jews. With the re-
cent change in power in the
Soviet Union, now would be
a timely opportunity to
renew our efforts."
