European Parliament Accuses Soviet Union of Increased Anti-semitism

Download PDF for this date

The Parliament of Europe charged that anti-Semitism is increasing in the Soviet Union and blamed the Soviet authorities. The accusation was mode at a special conference last week on the treatment of Jews in the USSR.

The conference noted that Soviet authorities deny Jews the right to a separate cultural identity and have made few concessions to Jewish demands for the right to learn Hebrew, Yiddish and Jewish history. The conference also observed that Jewish emigration has fallen sharply.
