in Italy Defeated
A Tribute to
By JOSEF FRAENKEL
The World Jewish Congress
lost two most distinguished
leaders and fighters for the
rights of Jews in a very short
time - Dr. Isaac Schwartzbart,
who died April 26, and Dr.
Franz Rudolf Bienenfeld, who
died in London May 18. Dr.
Bienenfeld belonged to the few
Austrian refugees who person-
ified the old Jewish tradition
of Vienna where Theodor Herzl,
Zvi Perez Chajes and Robert
Stricker worked and where
Jewish "Landespolitik" w a s
. His mother belonged to the
orthodox family of Schmelkes,
well - known through Rabbi
Schmelkes, who was called "the
Tzadik of Lemberg", and she
was an ardently religious per-
son. His grandfather, however,
and his father, a famous law-
yer, pursued the new "worldly"
ideas and thoughts. Dr. Bienen-
feld combined these tendencies,
as is faScinatingly set out in
his booklet "The Religion of
the Non-Religious Jews".
Bienenfeld studied law, and
at the same time, for five years,
attended the lectures of Prof.
After' 20 years of work he
published his book "Die Haf-
tungen ohne Verschulden" (Li-
abilities without Fault) which
received the "Anton Dirl Prize"
of the Vienna University in
1933 and is still in use today
as a textbook at several uni-
One year after Hitler's com-
ing into power, the book "Deu-
tsche and Juden" (The Ger-
mans and the Jews) by Anton
van Mueller was published in
Vienna and created a sensation.
The book was a strong weapon
against anti-Semitism. The en-
tire press wrote about it and
they tried in vain to discover
who this "Anton van Mueller"
was. The Nazis, of course, were
more shrewd, and reacted by
trying to kill the author-Dr.
F. R. Bienenfeld-by bomb at-
At that time the Austrian
section of the World Jewish
Congress was particularly ac-
tive. Robert Stricker was presi-
dent and I was honorary secre-
tary. Stricker called a special
meeting of all party represent-
atives, affiliated to the W. J. C.,
and proposed that Dr. Bienen-
feld should take over the chair-
manship of the Austrian sec-
tion. This proposal was approv-
ed by all parties, and was a
demonstration of - their great
confidence in Bienenfeld. I re-
member the last meeting of
Jewish youth of all parties in
Vienna and Bienenfeld's fever-
ish words and warnings of the
impending dangers - a short
time later Hjtler was in Vienna.
In London"; Zionist veterans
fromVienna founded the "Jacob
Ehrlich Society" and Bienen-
feld became its president.
In 1948 Bienenfeld became a
member of the World Execu-
tive of the W. J. C.
During the second world war
a Research Department of the
British Section of the W. J. C.
was established. This depart.
ment consisted of three sec-
tions, one of which was the
"Legal Section" with Dr. Bien-
enfeld as chairman. As long
ago as 1942, he, together with
his colleagues of the W. J. C.
worked on legal promulgations,
the basis principles of which
were later applied •at the "Nur-
emburg Trials". The thesis was
put forward by Dr. Bienenfeld
that valid laws of a sovereign
state may nevertheless be
crimes in international law.
ROME, (JTA) - A draft bill
to outlaw the neo-fascist Movi-
mento Sociale Italiano, which
is represented now in the
Italian Parliament, was defeated
in Parliament's Interior Affairs
Committee here. But the chief
sponsor of the measure plans
proposing the bill before a
plenary session of Parliament,
hoping it may still be adopted.
The principal backer of the
bill is Ferruccio Parri, presi-
dent of the Committee for Na-
tional Liberation and Italy's
first Prime Minister after the
liberation of Italy following
World War II.
A coalition of Democratic
Christians and neo-fascists de-
feated the draft bill in com-
mittee: The opponents of the
Parri measure insisted that pas-
sage of the bill would disfran-
chise a party already repre-
sented in Parliament, thereby
creating an undemocratic pre
They also held that, under
the Italian Constitution, only
the courts can rule on outlaw-
ing a party under a •constitu-
tional pro vislon prohibiting
revival of the Farcist party. When others fail him, the wise
Parri insists, however, that he
will continue pushing for the To the sure companionship of
bill in Parliament as a whole..
