Doctor Is Lone
Jewish Casualty

New York (JTA) — A
physician who was treating
an injured person is the sole
known Jewish victim of the
turbulence that has rocked
the Soviet republic of Azer-
baijan.
Alexander Markevka was
riding in an ambulance that
was hit by gunfire, according
to Daniel Mariaschin, direc-
tor of international and
public affairs for B'nai
B'rith International.
Mariaschin and Jacques
Lurie, chairman of the B'nai
B'rith department on Soviet
Jewry, learned the identity
of the Jewish victim in a con-
ference call placed to Leonid
Mishne, a Jewish activist in
Baku.
In a conversation last
week with Micah Naftalin,
national director of the
Union of Councils for Soviet
Jews, Mishne reported that
one Jew had died in the eth-
nic unrest, but he did not
then know the identity of the
victim.
He also said at the time
that the marauders "are
leaving Jews alone."
Mishne, who also goes by
his Hebrew name, Arieh, re-
iterated that Jews are not
being singled out in the in-
ternecine fighting between
Azerbaijanis and Armenians
and are therefore not in any
special danger.
But he said most of the
Jews want to immigrate to
Israel immediately.
"If you give them freedom
to leave, they would all leave
today," Mishne told
Mariaschin and Lurie.
"Jews want to go out as soon
as possible to Israel."
The urgency of bringing
Jews out of Central Asia was
addressed in New York on
Jan. 19 by Simcha Dinitz,
chairman of the World
Zionist Organization and
Jewish Agency Executives.
Dinitz, speaking at a news
conference of the Jewish
Agency and the United
Jewish Appeal, said Israel
was already giving priority
to visa applications coming
