Description This photograph was taken to illustrate Hugh A. Mulligan's, September 16th APN story on Russian Jews.
Title:"Shalom, Shalom"
Caption: "Every Jew has the right to enter Israel as a citizen" says the card handed to the Jews newly arrived from Russia being processed at the Israelis reception camp in Schoenau, Austria> The old country is only a day away, but already the past is receding, they are citizens of a new country. Most of the immigrants spend only one night here at the camp, some thirty miles outside Vienna. And some get away to Israel the same day they arrive in Vienna."
