Avital Shcharansky, wife
of imprisoned Soviet Jewish
refusnik Anatoly
Shcharansky, appealed on
behalf of her husband and
for all Soviet Jews who are
unable to emigrate at the
20th anniversary banquet
of Akiva Hebrew Day
School Sunday at Cong.
Shaarey Zedek.
Addressing an audience
of more than 550 persons,
Mrs. Shcharansky said in
heavily-accented and
broken English that al-
though her husband is ill
from his seven-year incarc-
eration "spiritually, thanks
God, he's very strong." Mrs.
Shcharansky said that
Shcharansky's mother vis-
ited him for two hours in
January, but didn't recog-
nize him because of his
weakened condition.
She recalled the history of
her husband's struggle to
leave the Soviet Union. In

terested in revenge. Rather,
she is motivated by the
knowledge that if mass kil-
lers go unpunished, that be-
comes a message that all fu-
ture murderers can destroy
human beings with impun-
ity.
Last month Beate
Klarsfeld held a press
conference at the Ameri-
can Jewish Committee
office in New York dur-
ing which she described
her recent visits to Chile,
Paraguay and Argentina
in pursuit of Nazi crimi-
nals. In Chile, she tried to
get the Pinochet govern-
ment to extradite to Ger-
many, Walter Rauff, the
former SS colonel who
invented the mobile gas
chambers in which some
200,000 Jews were killed.
The Chilean government
turned her down.'
In Paraguay, government
officials agreed to extradite
Dr. Josef Mengele, if they
can find him. The
Klarsfelds were partially
responsible for bringing the
"butcher of Lyon," Klaus
Barbie to trial in France.
Now they need the help of
the American government
and people to pressure Chile
to expel Walter Rauff.

Mexican Event
for Weizmann

. MEXICO CITY (JTA) —
President Miguel de la
Madrid Hortado and top
Mexican scientists and pub-
lic figures participated last
week in the Weizmann In-
stitute's international lead-
ership conference.
The conference em-
phasized the growing ties
between institute scientists
and their Latin American
counterparts, ties which
have been formalized by
cooperation agreements
with scientific bodies in
Mexico, Brazil, Venezuela,
Costa Rica, Panama and
Colombia.

The only vice that can't be
forgiven is hypocrisy.
