Inquiry Irks
Swiss Jews

Geneva (JTA) — The impen-
ding visit of former Jewish
Agency Treasurer Akiva
Lewinsky, who is coming to
Switzerland from Israel to
trace unclaimed money
deposited by Jews in Swiss
bank accounts during World
War II, has upset and angered
the Swiss Jewish community.
Lewinsky claims that the
deposits were more than the
10 million Swiss francs ($6.54
million) already reimbursed
to Jewish organizations, the
newspaper Le Courrier re-
ported Sunday. Lewinsky said
that he is not accusing the
banks or other institutions of
trying to profit from the
unclaimed accounts.
The Jewish Gazette in
Basel reminded Lewinsky
that "the limits fixed for the
claim of such funds expired 14
years ago."
Willy Guggenheim, secre-
tary general of the Swiss
Jewish Federation, said the
Jewish Agency should know
the issue is dead. But
authorities in Bern, the Swiss
capital, admit that people
still go to the banks to
reclaim funds.
In 1964, the banks gave
9.74 million Swiss francs to
the Ministry of Justice and
Police, the depositors having
disappeared.
Then, 7,000 people claim-
ing to be heirs presented
themselves at the banks. On-
ly a few had credible claims.
In 1975, the Swiss govern-
ment paid 2 million francs to
Jewish charitable organiza-
tions.

Arabs Favor
Communists

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Israeli
Arabs who intend to vote in
the Nov. 1 Knesset elections
will be casting votes for the
Communist Party, according
to a poll by the east
Jerusalem weekly Al-Biadir
as-Siyasi. More than 27 per-
cent of the 1,215 Israeli Arabs
polled said they do not intend
to vote.
The poll, which was pub-
lished last weekend, showed
no appreciable change in
voting preferences since the
last elections, despite the
Palestinian uprising.
If the elections were held at
the time of the poll, the
Hadash Communist Party
would command 21.48 per-
cent of the Arab vote if elec-
tions at the time of the
survey, followed by the Labor
Party with 11.85 percent. The
Likud Party would win 5.20.
