NEW YORK (JTA) —
Pope John Paul II, the
former archbishop Karol
Wojytla of Cracow, Poland,
is an unknown quantity
among Jews as he was for
most Christians when he
was elected Monday.
Jewish spokesmen
pointed to his anti-Nazi ac-
tivities during World War II
and to a belief that he may
seek to press for more reli-
gious freedom in the Soviet
Union and other East Euro-
pean countries.
Rabbi Marc H. Tanen-
baum, director of inter-
*religious affairs for the
American Jewish Commit-
tee, said that the AJCom-
mittee was sending its
European director from
Paris to Rome to try to learn
the new Pope's views on
Jews, Judaism and Israel
and the status of Jerusalem.
Tanenbaum said it is
hoped that by taking the
name John Paul H, the
new Pope will be as
understanding of Jews in
religious affairs and on
Israel as was his pre-
decessor. He also
stressed the importance
seen in that Cardinal
Wojtyla had been
strongly anti-Nazi as a
young man.
Born in the village of
Wadowice, near Cracow on

Along with Wyszynski, he

political opposition to the
Communist government. At
the same time, John Paul
has been more conciliatory
than Wyszynski and has
actively promoted better
church-state relations.
