Exchange With Reporters in St. Petersburg, Russia

April 19, 1996

    Q. Mr. President, can I ask you--anything you wanted to see in 
    The President. I saw the Impressionists paintings. I wanted to see 
them. And I wanted to see the living quarters of Catherine the Great. 
    Q. How did it compare to yours?
    The President. I like mine just fine. [Laughter]
    Q. [Inaudible]----house, Mr. President?
    The President. Well, she didn't have to run for election. [Laughter]
    Q. Are you going to see the Rembrandts here?
    The President. Perhaps, yes. I love the desks. The thing that 
strikes me is the woodwork. I hadn't counted on seeing all that. You 
ought to go back and see all the secret chambers in the desk back there. 
He put everything he had in there.
    Q. Mr. President, you've seen some religious symbols today that have 
been opened in the last few years to the Russian people. What are your 
thoughts on seeing things that didn't used to be open during the Soviet 
    The President. That's a very good thing, not only making it 
available to the people, but also making religious expression legitimate 
again and making it--encouraging and nourishing it. I think it's a real 
sign of the health of the Russian democracy that religion is respected 
and people are free to pursue it and express their honest convictions.

Note: The exchange began at approximately 2:30 p.m. in the White Hall 
Room at the Hermitage Museum. This item was not received in time for

Proclamation 6887--Jewish Heritage Week, 1996

April 19, 1996

By the President of the United States

of America

A Proclamation

    The Jewish experience in America has been a mutually rewarding one 
for this country and for the Jewish people. Jewish Americans have made 
great contributions in such fields as the arts and sciences, business, 
government, law and medicine, enriching America's heritage with the 
resonant tradition of an ancient people. And America, for its part, has 
been a land of opportunity for its Jewish citizens.
    In many ways, the Jewish experience is unique, freighted with the 
anguish of frequent persecution, but ennobled by an unyielding spirit 
that has always found a way to turn darkness into light. In the crucible 
of sorrow, the Jewish people have reaffirmed, time and again, the basic 
human values of faith, community, justice, and hope.
    On the tolerant soil of American democracy, the Jewish people have 
flourished. We will be forever grateful for the remarkable contributions 
of our Jewish citizens, and it is fitting that we set aside a week to 
give thanks for their inestimable gifts and to honor the traditions of 
their remarkable religion and heritage.
    Now, Therefore, I, William J. Clinton, President of the United 
States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the 
Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim April 21 
through April 28, 1996, as Jewish Heritage Week. I call upon the people 
of the United States to observe this week with appropriate programs, 
ceremonies, and activities.
    In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this nineteenth day 
of April, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and nine-

                                            William J. Clinton

[Filed with the Office of the Federal Register, 11:21 a.m., April 22, 

Note: This proclamation was published in the Federal Register on April 
23. This item was not received in time for publication in the

Proclamation 6888--National Crime Victims' Rights Week, 1996

April 19, 1996

By the President of the United States

of America

A Proclamation

    On April 19, 1995, millions of Americans witnessed the chaos and 
anguish wrought by a single bomb blast in Oklahoma City that took 168 
lives and injured scores of others. For days afterwards, our Nation 
joined the survivors in a grim vigil as somber work crews entered the 
wreckage again and again to locate victims.
    That bomb blast in Oklahoma City was a devastating reminder that too 
many Americans have become victims of crime. Although violent crime has 
decreased every year for the last 3 years, 83 percent of our citizens 12 
years of age and above will experience violent or attempted violent 
crime in their lifetimes. And worse, 52 percent will be victimized more 
than once. Added to these grim statistics is the reality that violent 
crime is increasingly a problem of our youth. For 12- to 19-year-olds, 
the chance of being assaulted, robbed, or raped is two to three times 
higher than for adults, and perpetrators of crime are both younger and 
more violent. In 1994, for example, about 33 percent of all violent 
crimes were committed by those under 21 years of age.
    There is another, more positive, dimension to the aftermath of 
crime: the multitude of dedicated professionals and volunteers who 
support and assist crime victims. They are emergency medical technicians 
and firefighters, law enforcement officers and rescue teams, victim 
assistance providers and shelter workers. At the darkest of moments, 
these selfless men and women renew our Nation's faith in humanity, and 
their advocacy embodies the time-honored American traditions of 
compassion and service. They constitute a community of caring whose
