Ida Nudel, the “angel” of Soviet Jewish Prisoners of Conscience, suffered a severe heart attack Oct. 23 in Siberia where she is in exile, it was reported here by the Al Tidom Association. The doctors in the camp where she resides refused to treat her and insisted that she is in “good health.” Al Tidom said that after her attack, which left her in great pain, she pulled herself from her bed and desperately cried for help Instead of assistance she found the words, “Jew, You Must Die,” painted on her door. Al Tidom said that Nudel is severely ill and is unable to withstand more harassment and that another heart attack could prove to be fatal.
