Mrs. Basia Soroko, a 32-year-old Jewish activist from Kiev, has received an exit visa to emigrate to Israel. It was reported today by the Student Struggle for Soviet Jewry. The SSSJ said this was a “happy ending” to a long suffering. Four months ago Mrs. Soroko was forcibly separated from her 40-year-old husband, Uri, and her 10-year-old son Zhenia. In Nov. 1973 they were permitted to leave for Israel without her. The SSSJ described the couple as being “top activists,” who, as a result of their activity and a protest against the Munich massacre of 11 Israeli Olympians, were imprisoned and harassed by the Soviet authorities.
