Temkin Appeals for His Daughter

Download PDF for this date

Jewish sources in the Soviet Union reported that Alexander Temkin, whose 13-year-old daughter, Marina, was abducted from their Moscow home and sent to the “Orlyonok” prisoners camp has written an open letter to lawyers all over the world asking them to intervene in his case and to help reverse the decision which deprived him of par rights. He concluded his letter with the plea: “The tragedy of my daughter is a consequence of injustice. I am appealing to you because without your support I will not lie able to procure justice.”

Stanley N. Nowinski, a “righteous gentile, will visit Israel next week.
