Nobel Winner
An Italian Jew

ROME (JTA) — Dr. Rita
Levi-Montalcini, who shared
the Nobel Prize in medicine
and physiology with Ameri-
can biochemist Stanley Co-
hen, comes from a family of
Italian Jewish intellectuals
in Turin. Now, at 77, this
small, elegant, bright-eyed
woman recalls first hearing
the expression "freethinker"
from her father, Prof. Gius-
sepe Levi, at the age of three.
That and deeply ingrained
feminism — her idol, she
says, was Simone de
Beauvoir — defined her life
and work. But her distin-
guished career was also
shaped by the people and
events that marked the fate
of the Jewish people in this
century.
Her family left Italy to es-
cape the stultifying and re-
pressive atmosphere of Mus-
solini's fascism. They lived in
Belgium for a time. but when
the Nazis invaded in 1940,
they fled back to Italy. Be-
cause she was Jewish she
was denied employment and
research facilities, though she
already held a doctorate.
Her Nobel Prize stemmed
from work completed in the
U.S. in 1951: discovery of
NGF, a protein growth factor
that stimulates nerve cell de-
velopment. It was the result,
she says, of an intuition best
described in a Latin proverb
which states that there is
physiological connection be-
tween a sound mind and a
sound body.

Refusenik
Goldfarb
Undergoes Tests

New York (JTA) — A
spokesman for the Columbia
Presbiterian Hospital in
Manhattan said last week
that ailing Soviet "refusenik"
David Goldfarb is "in stable
condition," and is undergoing
tests to evaluate his health.
Goldfarb and his wife
Cecilia, who were unexpected-
ly given permission to leave
the USSR, arrived in New
York with American indus-
trialist Armand Hammer
aboard his private jet. He was
met at Newark Airport by his
son, Alexander Goldfarb, and
his friend, journalist Nicholas
Daniloff.
The hospital's spokesman
said that Goldfarb is being
evaluated for "diabetes, car-
diac status and peripheral
vascular disease." The 67-
year- old molecular biologist
and geneticist has been suf-
fering from severe diabetes,
whose complications include
a heart ailment, ulcers, some
blindness and the loss of part
of his foot, with the possibili-
ty of the leg's amputation. He
lost his other leg during
World War II, in the Battle of
Stalingrad.
