Ludmilla, and their five-year-old son.

Paris (JTA) — Soviet Leader
Mikhail Gorbachev has asked
France to fly several thousand
Soviet Jews from the USSR to
Israel on a special airlift. But
the plan, which Gorbachev dis-
cussed with President Francois
Mitterand during his visit to
Paris earlier this month, has
been delayed for the time being
as French experts study its
practical aspects.
This information, which was
published by Le Monde, was ap-

parently

made public by the
French government after Israeli
Premier Shimon Peres told a

news conference following his
luncheon meeting with Mit-
terand Friday that France
might fly Soviet Jews directly to
Israel.
Peres also said at the news
conference that he had discussed
the liberalization of emigration
of Jews from the Soviet Union
and the loosening of restriction
on them, and the restoration or
diplomatic ties between the
USSR and Israel with Soviet
Foreign Minister Edward
Shevardnadze when they met in
New York last Wednesday night
at a reception connected with
the 40th anniversary of the UN.
Meanwhile, in New York last
week, John Cardinal O'Connor
told conservative rabbis that he
would ask President Reagan to
raise the issue of Soviet Jewish
immigration and religious rights
when he meets with Soviet
leader Mikhail Gorbachev in
Geneva Nov. 19.
Speaking at an all-day confer-
ence of social concern sponsored
by the Rabbinical Assembly,
New York's archbishop told the
250 assembled spiritual leaders:
"The story of Jewish and Chris-
tian suffering in the Soviet
Union must be told to every
man, woman and child. We can-
not be rebuffed in this mission
to educate everyone regarding
this deprivation of human
rights."
In other news, longtime Soviet
refusenik Mark Nashpitz ar-
rived in Israel with his family
last week. Nashpitz, who
applied to leave the USSR in
the early 1970s, was finally

granted an exit visa by Soviet
authorities last month.
And the National Conference
on Soviet Jewry reported last
week that Hebrew teacher
Leonid Volvovsky of Gorky was
sentenced to three years impris-
onment on charges of allegedly
"defaming the Sovet State and
social system." The sentence
was handed down after a five-
day trial from which his family
and friends were barred.

Among the evidence presented
against the 43-year-old engineer
was Leon Uris's novel, Exodus.
This marked the second time in'
less than a year that the novel

was presented as alleged "proof'
of anti-Soviet behavior. It had
also been included in eviden-
tiary materials used in the case
against Odessa Hebrew teacher
Yakov Levin, who was convicted
of the same charge last Novem-
ber. A woman who testified
against Volvosky claimed that
he gave her the book and asked
her to distribute it.

CJC Urges
T-Shirt Ban

Toronto (JTA) — The Cana-
dian Jewish Congress 8CJC) has
urged local retailers to stop sell-
ing T-shirts emblazoned with
the words "Adolf Hitler Euro-
pean Tour 1939-45," a list of
countries and dates they were
invaded by Nazi Germany. in .
World War II, and a picture
Hitler sporting a swastika an
doing the Nazi salute over a
European map. The shirt re-
sembles those designed to mark
the tours of rock stars.
Manuel Prutschi, the CJC di-
rector of community relations,
said the T-shirt is on sale at
several stores in the downtown
shopping area. One of them, the
Toronto Bargain Centre on
Younge Street, took the shirts
off the market last week after a
CJC official asked them to, ac-
cording to Prutschi.
