NEW YORK — A New York
State Supreme Court jury declared
Monday that Mrs. Erna Menzel was
the owner of a Marc Chagall paint-
ing which a Gestapo unit con-
fiscated in the Menzel home in
Brussels in 1941. The work is
named "Nez et Echelle" (Nose and
Ladder.)
The story, as unfolded during a
two-week trial, began in 1932 when
the Menzels, who are not Jewish,
brought the gouache for $150.
When the German army invaded
Belgium, the Menzels fled, coming
to New York in 1941.
For years they checked art
catalogs and galleries in the U.S.
and Europe in search of the paint-
ing. In 1962, Mrs. Menzel, then a
widow, found the paintinglisted
as belonging to Albert A. List,
the Jewish philanthropist, and she
filed suit against him to recover.
List said he had purchased the
work from the Penis Galleries of
New York in 1955 for $4,000. The
gallery said it had brought the
work from a Paris gallery earlier
that year for $2,800.
In addition to establishing the
current value of the gouache at
$22,500, the jury held that List was
entitled to regain the full value —
$22,500 — of the painting from the
Penis Galleries.

Israel Govt. Probes
Charges That Aide
Was Nazi in War

JERUSALEM (JTA) — The Is-
rael Foreign Ministry instructed
its legation in Budapest to investi-
gate allegations in a Hungarian
newspaper that Dr. Alexander
Toerock, counselor in the West
German Embassy in Tel Aviv, was
a wartime member of the Hung-
arian Nazi Party.
Toerock has denied the
charge, and contended that a re-
production of his alleged party
membership card was a forgery.
To e r o c k, a naturalized West
German citizen, was a Hungarian
during the war and represented
Hungary in Berlin during the Nazi
regime. The charges and alleged
document were reported in Israeli
newspapers last week.
Yediot Achronoth, an evening
newspaper which first aired the
charges of past Nazism against
Toerock, repeated those ac-
cusations Monday. The news-
paper reported that, in a tele-
phone interview with the
Hungarian Jewish historian,
Jano Libai, of Budapest, the lat-
ter repeated his charge that
Toerock had been a member of
the Arrow Cross, the Hungarian
Nazi party, during the war.
(The spokesman for West Ger-
many's foreign office denied again
in Bonn charges that Toerock
was a member of the Hungarian
Arrow Cross during the Hitler
period. The allegations, said the
spokesman, were "typical Com-
munist maneuvers, designed to pro-
voke dissension between the Bonn
government and those states with
which it is in harmony.")
