Download PDF for this date

The appeal of Raiza Palatnik, the Odessa Jewish Librarian sentenced to two years in a labor camp for alleged anti-Soviet activities, will be heard tomorrow, according to reports from the USSR. This afternoon, women of the Committee of 33, clad in black and heavily veiled, staged a peaceful protest outside the office of Intourist, the Soviet tourist agency, in central London. A spokesman noted reports that Miss Palatnik was very ill and in great pain and was being dented medical care. “Please help us to save an innocent woman.” she pleaded.
