We, in the Detroit Jewish
Community, have a chance to
say thank you to Dan
Grossman, a human rights of-
ficer at the Soviet desk of the
State Department, who will
be speaking at Cong. Shaarey
Zedek at 2 p.m. Sunday as
part of the Human Rights
Plea for Soviet Jewry. Dan
was a legend amongst the

Low Priority

behalf while assigned to the
U.S. Consulate in Leningrad.
It was precisely because of his
activism and effectiveness
that he was declared persona
non grata by the Soviets at
the first opportunity.

Toronto -- Former Cana-
dian Premier Pierre
Trudeau's unexpected admis-
sion that his government
should not have ignored alleg-
ed Nazi war criminals in
Canada has sparked a lively
debate over why virtually
nothing was done about the
issue by his Liberal Party.
Speaking at a closed-door
international conference at
McGill University, marking
the 40th anniversary of the
Nuremberg trials, Trudeau
acknowledged that war
criminals were not a priority
for his government.
"We had two obstacles. One
was the low priority given to
the issue, but the second was
the legal opinions on which
we operated," Liberal M.P.
Kaplan told the Toronto
Globe and Mail.
Justice critic Svend Robin-
son of New Democratic Party
wouldn't let Trudeau off easi-
ly. "His behavior amounted to
shameful indifference," he
said. "It was totally unaccep-
table and deeply disturbing.
It meant that had the
Liberals been reelected quite
clearly there would have been
no further action whatsoever
on this question."

troublesome to do so."
Under the auspices of the
Chicago chapter of the
American Jewish Committee,
these women from Orthodox,
Conservative, Reform, Recon-
structionist and Jewish
secular lifestyles set out last
year to break through the
barriers that often exist bet-
ween the various segments in
the Jewish community.

Greece Rejects
Request

Athens (JTA) — The Greek
government favors bringing
Nazi war criminals to justice
but cannot demand the ex-
tradition of Alois Brunner,
because it is bound by laws
passed during a previous ad-
ministration, government
spokesman Yannis Roumbatis
said last Sunday.
The Greek Jewish com-
munity had made a formal re-
quest to the government a
year ago to seek the extradi-
tion of Brunner from Syria,
where he has lived for more
than 20 years.
Brunner, a deputy and chief
aide to Adolf Eichmann, ar-
rived in Salonika, Greece, in
February 1943 and im-
mediately signed orders for
the extermination of the
46,000 Jews in the city.

Women Discuss
Jewish Divorce

Chicago — Fourteen Chica-
go-area Jewish women recent-
ly issued a statement on the
Get, a religious document cer-
tifying the termination of a
marriage.
The statement declares,
"The women in the group
represent different points of
view within Judaism. At this
time for practical reasons or
reasons of Jewish unity, we
urge all Jewish men and
women to obtain a traditional
Jewish divorce (Get) in con-
junction with a civil divorce.
Some of us want it noted that
