We owe it to (Soviet Jews)
to come out and protest," said
Lane. "We here in America
have the right to protest and
we should take that opportu-
nity and help (Soviet Jews)."
"I find it repulsive that
Jews are going in (to see the
shows). They just don't
realize what is happening to
Jews in the Soviet Union."
The demonstrators received
support from a woman, be-
lieved to be a member of the
Russian orchestra accom-
panying the dance troupe.
She went up to one of the
demonstrators and asked if
the names printed on the
signs were of refuseniks still
living in Russia.
"When I said (the names
were of refuseniks), she said
'Thank you, I'll be on to-
night,' " said demonstrator
Susan Graham. "As she said
that, some of her bodyguards
came up and ushered her
away. Then she squeezed my
arm and smiled at me. It was
her way of saying 'comrade.'
"I felt so good after that. It
made everything worthwhile.
At least, now, she knows
(some of the names). If we
hadn't been here, she
wouldn't have ever found
out."
Dr. Arnold Zuroff was
given two tickets to the
Moiseyev by a grateful
dancer he treated last Thurs-
day. Dr. Zuroff, a dentist, re-
ceived a call from Pittsburgh
where he received his train-
ing, asking him to see a

member of the Moiseyev
troupe. The Moiseyev came to
Detroit from Pittsburgh.
"The next thing we knew,
there was a dancer, an in-
terpreter and a KGB agent in
our waiting room," Dr. Zuroff
said, "and two more agents ,
were waiting outside in a
taxi."
The woman dancer was so
grateful for the root canal
work performed by Dr. Zuroff
that she offered him the tic-
kets and invited him
backstage. "I felt bad because
of the protests, and because I
don't like Soviet policies," Dr.
Zuroff said. But he asked the
pickets for fliers to take
backstage with him and gave
them to several of the dan-
cers.

Beverly Yost, a staff asso-
ciate with the Jewish Com-
munity Council, noted a dif-
ference in the audiences
attending Saturday night's
and Sunday's performances.
"The Saturday night crowd
was generally receptive (to
the picketing)," Yost said,
"but Sunday's crowd was
more hostile." No incidents of
violence were reported, but
one theater-goer spat at a
picket on Sunday and other
reported hearing comments
such as, "This is disgusting"
and "Let the Jews stay in
Russia."
Yost believes there were
more "ethnic-oriented" indi-
viduals at Sunday's perform-
ance.

Sen. Moynihan Links
Kristallnacht, UN Votes

ALAN HITSKY

n the eve of the an-
niversaries of Kris-
tallnacht (Nov. 10,
1938) and the Zionism is Ra-
cism revolution at the United
Nations (Nov. 10, 1975), Sen.
Daniel P. Moynihan (D-N.Y.)
last Sunday drew parallels
between the two events.
Speaking at the second an-
niversary dinner of the
Holocaust Memorial Center
at the Westin Hotel, Moyni-
han reminded the audience of
the words of the Israeli UN
Ambassador Chaim Herzog:
"Kristallnacht — the Night
of Broken Glass — showed
the Nazis that they could de-
stroy the Jewish People and
the world would not step in."
Herzog warned the UN
General Assembly that it was
making the same decision
when it ignored language and
changed factual events to suit
its political goals.
Moynihan, who was the
U.S. Ambassador to the UN
at the time, saw the UN vote
as part of a Soviet campaign
to delegitimize Israel follow-
ing Israel's victory in the

1967 Six-Day War. "When Is-
rael defeated its Arab
neighbors," Moynihan said,
"they changed tactics. Instead
of trying to defeat Israel,
they have tried to de-
legitimize Israel. In 1971, the
Soviets began the claim that
Jews collaborated with the
Nazis to create the Holocaust.
Four years later, the UN
equated Zionism with racism.
"I said at that time that
the vote would destroy the
human rights movement. It
has led to annual votes
against Israel at the UN,
votes claiming that
Jerusalem is occupied Arab
territory, the 1981 vote urg-
ing nations to move their
embassies from Jerusalem."
Moynihan brought the
issue up to date by recalling
that "the only thing Iran and
Iraq agree on is that they
both want to win their war so
that they can fight against
international Zionism. How
can our government supply
arms to either side?"
The 1,400 dinner guests
witnessed the awarding of
the Holocaust Memorial Cen-
ter's Righteousness Award to
the citizens of LeChambon
