The democratization that
has occurred under Mikhail
Gorbachev has not created
democratic institutions, he
says, "but it has allowed
people to express them-
selves. And immediately you
see the rise of primitive anti-
Semitism." But today, he
warns, "it's more serious
than a primitive, street-level
anti-Semitism."
The Russians have
discovered that their regime
destroyed all their moral
values, along with their
cultural and religious in-
stitutions: "People aren't
ready to take responsibility
for their own history. It's
mother nature that the
scapegoat becomes the Jews.
"I am not optimistic," he
says. "I think this strong
chauvinist nationalism,
with deep undercurrents of
anti-Semitism, will be
strong in the years to come."
Vladimir Slepak, another
well-known former
refusenik who recently
visited the Soviet Union to
attend the first Soviet Jew-
ish Congress, was alarmed
by the atmosphere he en-
countered.
"In the two years since I
emigrated from the Soviet
Union, there have been
many changes — and all for
the worse," he said in Lon-
don last week. Consumer
goods were scarcer than
ever, "everyone is angry and
nervous, and no one believes
in the future."
In this climate, Russians
were turning on the
"traditional scapegoats,"
said Slepak, a scientist who
waited 17 years before being
granted a visa to emigrate.
"I met many Jews who had
previously not thought of
emigrating or who had even
been actively opposed to it.
Now they have decided to
leave. I personally received
200 requests to leave."
There is indeed little doubt
that the thousands of Soviet
Jews now pouring into
Israel, unlike the
ideologically motivated
"refuseniks" of the '70s, are
being propelled into their
uncertain new lives by the
push of anti-Semitism rather
than the pull of Zionist
fulfillment.
A measure of Israeli con-
cern about the fate of Soviet
Jews is that special dispen-
sation has been granted for
them to fly out of the Soviet
Union whenever the oppor-
tunity presents itself, even
on the Sabbath. And, despite
the official ban on Sabbath
flights by Israel's national
carrier, El Al, special
dispensation has been
granted to Israeli air crews

to operate such flights.
Yet another sign of the
times was provided last
week by Mark and Louise
Puzis, who decided not to
wait for months to get a
flight out of the Soviet
Union. Desperation bred
daring: They simply loaded

Vladimir Slepak

themselves and their two-
month-old baby into their
Soviet-made Lada
automobile and drove from
the Ukraine to Israel,
trading vodka for gas along
the way.
Says engineer Victor
Savitsky, who had to cool his
heels for four months before
he could even buy plane
tickets to Israel for himself,
his wife and tiny daughter:
"What I can't believe is that
any of my Jewish friends
have stayed behind." ❑

Germans See
Few Convictions

West Berlin (JTA) - West
German State Prosecutor
Adalbert Rucker now be-
lieves it is almost impossible
to get a Nazi war criminal
convicted for crimes corn-
mitted nearly a half century
ago.
The federal investigation
offices in Ludwigsburg con-
tinue to amass evidence and
prepare charges against in-
dividuals, he said.
But very few Nazis are ex-
pected to be charged this
year, and it is highly im-
probable that war crimes
charges will be filed in
future years, the prosecutor
said.
He spoke after the screen-
ing here of a Paramount
newsreel on Nazi war
criminals and death camps,
which was first released to
theaters on May 5, 1945, at
the end of World War II.
The documentary appeared
in a film festival.
