Mrs. Oskar Schindler Tells Clinton To Free Pollard

December 20, 1994

Mr. Bill Clinton
President of the United States
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
Washington, D.C. 20500

Dear Mr. President:

I wish to add my voice to those humanitarian leaders who are urging your intervention in reducing the sentence of Jonathan Pollard to time served.

Mr. Pollard's misguided deeds were motivated by a fear for the safety for the Jewish people in Israel. He has paid

a very heavy price

for that mistake and I hope you will take the steps that will enable him to lead the rest of his life as a productive member of society.

I know from personal experience that

good decisions are often the most difficult to make


I thank you for your consideration.


Mrs. Emile Schindler

Oskar Schindler's rescue of more than 1,000 Jews during World War II was documented in the award-winning film "Schindler's List".
