Soviet Jewish scientists who visa applications for emigration to Israel have been denied have been called 'refusniks.' These scientists and the underground scientific seminars, called 'Sunday Seminars,' they have organized against the wishes of Soviet officials have been of interest to several University physics faculty members during the ten years these seminars have been taking place. The most recent direct contact with these oppressed scientists and the seminars was during the May 1981 visit of Professor John Kogut to the Soviet Union. Kogut was there during a recent scientific exchange with the Steklov Institute in Leningrad and the Landau Institute in Moscow. During these visits, Kogut met with and interviewed several refusniks.
